I am deeply saddened by todays news. I recently had the HONOR of seeing Kevin Clash at the University of Maryland with Elmo. My adult children and I had the most amazing afternoon together. Kevin was warm, sensitive to not ruin the Elmo mystique with the children. The world will not be the same without Kevin as Elmo. Kevin's Elmo cannot be replaced. Thank you Kevin for the many years of happiness you have given my children.
