  • I can almost hear Don Knotts saying, "welcome Andy to the real Mayberry"

    I hope he knew how much joy he brought to so many. RIP Sheriff!

  • Guess I am way behind the news. Your post WAS the news to me and it brought misty eyes. I hope we cloned Andy in a few more actors before he left us.

    He gave us so much good, clean entertainment. A true gift to us that I hope is returned 10 fold in his new home.

  • John, I too learned of Andy's death with your column. I turned away for a moment and tried to think of how to say goodbye. His wishes that he be buried just hours after his death, showed just how much he thought of others. In other words, love me while I am here, let me go when I leave.
