    I watch him as a young kid, definitely shocking news to me as I listened to the radio on the way to work.

    I heard this on the news this morning. Very sad. As a kid, I watched Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, The Electric Company and then, as I got older, 3-2-1 Contact.

    I watched Mr. Rogers, Electric Company and Zoom.

    Mr. Rogers was indeed a television icon, and will be sorely missed.

    My children and grandchildren both knew him well. My 3 year old grandson is going to be really upset. He just lost his dog too. Hard to explain death to 3 year olds.

    I definitely shed a tear or two for Mr. Rogers. There are few people in the world who have done more for children than he has done.

    Re: Won\'t You Be... My Neighbor

    Very sad indeed. He was just on one of our local radio stations promoting his new book before he got sick. He is definately going to be missed.

    And ZOOM....come on and zooma, zooma, zooma, zoom. I used to love that show...wore my rugby shirt forever...Wasn't the zip code 02134? Amazing the silly stuff we remember

    If I remember correctly, Mr. Rogers has done some shows (and books?) about death. They might be available at a local Library.

    Nice interview with Mr. Rogers from This American Life (Act 1 - about 5 minutes in...):
