    Let me try to do what I wanted to do originally. I too am a big fan of "The Andy Griffith Show", I own "No Time For Sergeants" and "A Face In The Crowd is an incredible film. Not to mention "What It Was, Was Football".

    Andy, you brought into the the living rooms of this country, the world that I grew up in.
    I am so blessed to have grown up in a small mid-western town during those innocent years of the 1950s and early 60s.
    Yes, I lived in the equivalent of Mayberry, and I often say I had an Opie childhood.
    So thank you for your television show, and the positive character you portrayed (all those episodes) that helped me stay connected, and grounded through all the crazy times in my life.
    Your passing to me, truly means an end of an era.

    Many a lesson was learned from that show. Andy was a good God fearing man. Very caring and generous and outstanding morals. He will be dearly missed.

    Like everybody else I grew up watching Mayberry, but "A face in the crowd" has been a favorite of mine for well over 20 years now... Gonna miss that guy.

    I survived being a single dad based on what I learned from Mayberry.
    A class act.

    Andy Griffith played in a wonderful little film, "Onionhead", about a fella from Oklahoma who joins the US Coast Guard and serves on a buoy tender. Just a bit of Coastie nostalgia, we used to watch the film on the mess deck on USCGC Gentian when I was in the Guard.

    His career gave him the opportunity to play many varied characters from good guy to bad and lasted the bulk of his life.

    Via con Dios, Andy. We were all a little better to have known you.

    All around, genuine, good, human being.
    Heavens gates await,
    R.I.P. Andy Griffith
  15. I was very sad to hear this news, my Dad work for him a lot over the years. He was a genuine nice guy and really loved his Model A's, Dad had some great storie's of him and his car's. Andy was a good friend to my Dad over the years, what I remember as a kid was when Andy had a job so did my Dad.

    I remember him being a kind and thoughtful guy, just like the person he played on TV. I think that is why everyone loved the roles he played, he was just being himself.

    A good, later piece of work by Andy Griffith, one that I personally treasure:

    (Brad Paisley video, Waitin' on a Woman. Just another role that he made perfect).

    So long, Ang.

    TV Land is having a Andy marathon and I was compelled to sit down and watch one. I'm on #4 and my wife keeps saying, "Hurry up, we have things to do" - she just doesn't understand:)
  25. sad news, He will be missed... I know Andy and Don are smiling down us from their small part of Mayberry up in Heaven... God Bless, and R.I.P.

    One of the true great ones. All of us are better off having had him around to ply his craft.

    Men who had an influence in my life:
    My Dad (he and Andy would get along swell.)
    My Grandfathers, who I had the privilege of working beside.
    Andy Griffith

    Like others here, hearing of Andy's passing is a kick in the gut.
    TAGS takes me back to simpler, happy times and I still am in awe
    of it's many lessons. And he was one fine actor in so many roles.
    One of a kind.

    It was sad when Barney left Andy. Feels like I've lost a little bit of what makes life solid. Rest in Peace Andy.
