Dear Terry:

You did not know, but you has been a brother to me. Life has been joyful, outrageous, funny, just because I am able to switch on my DVD player and play Flying Circus, Python films, Erik the Viking or any of your masterpieces.

You asked about the Meaning of Life in your last Python Film. Now, I know the answer. It is the chance to watch your series, films, and to read your wonderful books.

I will not miss you, cause you will be always in the same place: My screen, my bookshelf and my heart.

See you soon, Master.

Posted by A friend   January 23, 2020

Condolences to family and friends. Rest sin Peace, Terry. Thank you for making the world a better place. You took an outrageously oversized stop-animated barefoot step forward when we all needed something completely different and you will be remembered.

I'm pretty sure, the afterlife is MUCH funnier now, and with a greater sense of how humorous it is in concept. Thank you, Mr. Jones, for taking a camera, or more, and making us laugh so much that we forgot our world for a few minutes. You were and still are one, original human being!
