Gosh... I loved him.
Mr. Rogers is my wallpaper for my cellular phone and my laptop.
I learned SO MUCH from him... Growing up in San Antonio.
I remember... Amidst all of the bullshit that was going on in "that house," I would always look forward to hearing Mr. Rogers asking if I could be his neighbor. And him zipping up his cardigan all the way up, then halfway down. And putting on his Keds sneakers.
Mr. Rogers. He was probably my first friend.
I'm about 8 years late, but... Rest in peace, Fred Rogers.
