fredDear Mr. Rogers,

When I was little I was all about watching your show. You were just so calm, and kind, and loving. I learned a lot from you. I think you were probably my second best example of patience and kindness in my young life. (My mother was number one of course.)

It may have just been a TV show, but Mr. Roger's Neighborhood helped me become the person I am today. I am pretty sad that kids these days might grow up not knowing who you are. Who will be their example of unending patience and kindness?

Thanks for everything you taught me,
Athena

Check out the video below to learn some fun facts about dear ol' Fred.

If you or someone you know is just as in love with this man as we are, make sure you stop in to see our rather size-able collection of Mr. Roger's gift items and books!
