     Andy Griffith said today: 


     "George Lindsey was my friend." 

     I had great respect for his talent and his human spirit. In recent years, we spoke often by telephone. Our last conversation was a few days ago. We would talk about our health, how much we missed our friends who passed before us and usually about something funny.

     I am happy to say that as we found ourselves in our eighties, we were not afraid to say, 'I love you.' That was the last thing George and I had to say to each other. 'I love you.'"

That was such a great show! I could hardly wait as a child for Andy of Mayberry came on. Such a great actor. Tweeted about that too.

I picked up this news while I was up in the middle of the night.  I was shocked.  Who didn't love Goober? When you watch people for what seems like your whole life, it's as if you've lost a friend even when you don't know them personally.

Fred,  Very sad news.  I grew up watching Andy Griffith on a black and white TV.  The entire family laughed and roared at this show.  Simpler times.  He will be missed.
