Jim Henson Memorial Service

Jim Henson played a very special role in many of our lives, especially if you are reading this blog. If you are, you probably are a creator, puppeteer, artist, writer, designer or are in the entertainment industry in some regards. A young Frank Oz came from a family of puppeteers, and immediately bonded with Jim. He was Bert to Jim's Ernie. Here is Frank's tribute to Jim at New York's Memorial Service, that was held with very strict rules from Jim that it be fun (no black clothing, lots of music and many friends).
