Jones died on Wednesday at the age of 77 from a rare form of dementia. “Let us think back to the joy he has brought to all of us” John Cleese thanks Jones for his work, he says via Twitter. “Just heard about Terry J,” writes Cleese about his Monty Python colleague. “It feels strange that a man with so many talents and so much endless enthusiasm must disappear so softly. Of all his many achievements, his direction for Life of Brian was for me his greatest gift. Perfection.” He also added: “Two are gone, four are left”, referring to the death of Jones and Graham Chapman in 1989. Cleese played with Jones, Chapman and Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin in multiple Monty Python movies. Palin, in turn, says: “You will be greatly missed. I am happy that I have been able to share so much in my life with Terry.” Idle also looks back on many beautiful moments with the actor. “It’s cruel and sad. But let’s think back to the joy he brought to all of us.” The official account of the British satirical group pays tribute to the deceased actor through a photo. “Goodbye dear Terry J.”, it says below.
