With Marcus Johansson being sent to New Jersey in a trade, the Capitals will have to deal with the consequences of his departure throughout their lineup.

But Johansson isn't the only one leaving. General Johansson is, too — and his departure means Capitals fans are now facing a giant void in their social media lives.

CSN's popular "Dearest Abigail" memes started last year during Washington's second-round series versus Pittsburgh after MoJo arrived at the Verizon Center looking like he'd just come from an important meeting with other Civil War generals. His attire is what inspired many tweets that were written as if a lovelorn Johansson was communicating with a woman he'd left for battle.

Now that the forward's career in D.C. is officially over, it's unfortunately time to take one final look back at some of the best versions of the meme.

Travel safely, General Johansson. And thank you for all that you've done.
