Will Lee, 'Sesame Street'

Beloved children's program "Sesame Street" used Will Lee's real-life 1982 passing to teach the muppets and the kids at home about death and how it was OK to miss Mr. Hooper, as the cast shed tears and said goodbye. "Big Bird, Mr. Hooper's not coming back" still gets us every time.
