God bless Andy Griffith
Andy Griffith as he'll always be remembered
Andy Griffith has died. A little over a year after my own Dad, and that saddens me even more. Andy Griffith was one of those rare individuals who you got the impression was all that he seemed to be. While many remember him as the skinflint lawyer Matlock, most will forever remember him as the kind, wise, and respect- demanding sheriff Andy Taylor. Even today, young people I work with and know were saddened to hear of his passing. In an age of reality TV and the muck and murk of modern tabloid celebrity, it stands as a testimony that he would be missed by so many across so many age groups. My boys have long enjoyed reruns of The Andy Griffith Show. A man whose heart never strayed far from his roots, his faith, or his values; actor, comedian, Gospel singer - he will be missed. Rest in the arms of God Mr. Griffith, and thank you God for giving him to us, if just for a little while.
