Although I didn't meet him, I got a very lovely letter from Mr. Rogers. The year Kevin was going to be 13, I wrote to every celebrity he liked or had liked, to get their autograph. Mr. Rogers not only sent me an autographed picture, he wrote me a splendid letter. He encouraged me as a mother, complimented me on the idea to do such a thing for Kevin, and wished me well. He wrote like he spoke- very gentle and comforting.
