GUEST,Big Ballad Singer Fred Rogers hangs up his sweater (1928-2003) (43) RE: Fred Rogers hangs up his sweater 01 Aug 10

When my wife was pregnant with our first daughter, we wrote to Mr. Rogers through the Family Communications website. He, personally, replied with an email letter to my wife and I and attached a separate letter, addressed to our yet-unborn daughter about how her mom and dad loved her and wanted so much to share this beautiful world with her when she arrived.

I'm tearing up just writing this and remembering that day when our lives were touched so personally and profoundly.

I have never outgrown Mr. Rogers and the wonderful Neighborhood, and I never will. He is a mainstay in our home and I cannot be grateful enough for the peace, joy and compassion he taught us through his life's work.

If any of his family or friends ever stop by and read these things, I hope they come away with a sense of how much so many of us love our Mr. Rogers.

Speedy Delivery,
