A great entertainer that many of us grew up with. He will be missed by so many. RIP Andy...
Life is too short to wake up with regrets ~So love the people who treat you right
Forget about those who don't ~ Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a chance, take it If it changes your life, let it ~Nobody said life would be easy,
they just promised it would most likely be worth it~ remember, Sometimes Miracles Hide
I had the good fortune to work with Andy for a number of years as a regular extra on Matlock. He was warm, funny, cantankerous, lovable, and giving. He made the set a joy to be on and always took time for others. I grew to love him very much. RIP Andy, you are now back with Don and I can hear the two of you telling your stories and making us all laugh.
Cruising the Seas... Looking for the Pearl
Andy Griffith is a part of my family history. We'll miss him.
There are 10 kinds of people in this world... Those who know binary and those who don't.
This leaves just Jack Klugman as the sole survivor among the childhood mystery/police shows I loved to watch.
The other two being Raymond Burr (Perry Mason) and Carroll O'Connor (In the Heat of the Night).
But amazingly enough, AG had a career outside TV!
He starred on Broadway in "No Time for Sergeants" and did the movie version as well, but if you really want to see a tour-de-force acting job, watch him in "A Face in the Crowd"!! His performance will blow you away!!
RIP Andy Griffith.
You know I've been reading articles and tributes to Andy Griffith for 24 hours now. I have yet to find one bad thing said about the man. He was straight-up and decent - immensely talented as a comic actor, dramatic actor, and accomplished singer. It seemed only fitting that he would pass away in his home state of North Carolina and not anywhere close to Hollywood. I remember PBS showing a fascinating look at sitcoms of the 60's and was amazed about how differently Andy insisted his show be produced against the norm. At a time when most shows were being taped, some in front of live audience, some not, The Andy Griffith show was filmed, like a movie would be. They were able to do shots outdoors which brought a town to life and filming brought time for the characters to develop and deliver truly memorable scenes. When I think about The Andy Griffith Show now, and its been years since I scene one, I think about how much you were able to look into the eyes of characters and see a world of caring. It's different now. Nice work Andy.

Well, apparently he didn't like being reminded of the Ritz cracker commercial he did. A friend of mine ran into him once and said "mmmmmmm, good cracker!" and he turned his back on her. But if that's the worst thing he ever did --- he might have been having a bad day. Otherwise, everything I have ever heard about him points to him being a gem of a guy.
If I go down, I'm going down fat and full.
