Mr. Rogers 1928-2003

Fred Rogers dead at 74:

It’s hard to believe he’s gone. Some things you just think will be around forever. He may have been too sappy for some but there was a time when I was really young that Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood were my universes. Who can forget the Trolley and King Friday XIII and Speedy Delivery? Fred Rogers wasn’t just a TV show host either. He was a well-rounded and learned individual in the field of child welfare. And how many of us have started singing the song when we were either changing shoes or putting on a sweater? Now cancer has taken him away from us and from the children. The way things are today we could really use him. Today the neighborhood will never be the same.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Rogers family and all of those who grew up with him.
