Thanks for the Memories, Andy

So long, Sheriff Taylor.  Feels like I’ve lost an old family friend with the passing of Andy Griffith.  Not only did I grow up with Mayberry – I grew up in a town LIKE Mayberry.

End of an era.  Thanks for the memories, Andy.

  1. Oh I loved me some Andy! I just realized recently that there is a bible study based on Andy and the Mayberry days! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. I was so sad to hear this. My son is such a BIG fan of Andy and Barney. May they both rest in peace.

  3. Hi Kathryn,
    thanks for the theme song and video clip.
    We all loved Andy and Opie and my kids wanted to live in Mayberry and have a dad like Andy.
    Have a lovely week
    God Bless

  4. The small town in Western PA where my parents grew up was like Mayberry too! I loved to watch the Andy Grffith show.

    Happy 4th!

  5. I loved his wit and wisdom. Oh, how I wish the children (and adults) of today could have good paternal role models on television. His tender scenes with Opie were my favorites.

  6. Those were the days and that was the town!
