    I was sorry to read of the death of Bob Keeshan yesterday. Played Captain Kangaroo for 30 years. When he was awarded one of his honorary doctorates, he joked about now being Doctor Kangaroo.

    Gee, Mr. Rogers and Captain K in a year. I hope Carroll Spinney and Tinky Winky are in good health.

    As a child, I loved both Captain Kangaroo and Mister Rogers. I was truly upset by the deaths of was like a piece of my childhood died along with them.

    I too am saddened. Not only for the loss of a great actor and teacher, but for the loss of a fellow Marine. Do you think he will stand guard at the gates of heaven, or go in and play with the children? Any which way he will truly be missed.

    Veritas and Semper Fi.

    Bob Keeshan and Fred Rogers were both child advocates, who in spite of their professions, liked to remind us not to let television become our baby-sitters. When my own children were growing up I often watched and enjoyed each of these gentle men along with them. They will definitely be missed.

    Bob Keeshan was a exceptionally talented man who brought joy, laughter and education to many children (and adults). Role models of his caliber are far and few between.

    I will miss him dearly. He was a major part of my childhood.

    I have nothing but warm memories of Captain Kangaroo. Nothing better than to stay home from school with a cold, and curl up with the Captain, a grilled cheese sandwich, and a bowl of tomato soup!
