Every adult of my age wanted Sheriff Taylor for a father. Wise. Calm. Loving.
This week, we lost one of the icons from my childhood.
Andy Griffith died this week. I took it hard. The Andy Griffith show was a staple in my house growing up. In fact, I’m pretty sure my dad owns most, if not every, episode of that show. When hubby and I are flipping channels and come across an old episode, we’ll stop and watch. It’s amazing how much of the “lesson” of the show is still valid today. It taught honesty, morality and love all the while not taking itself too seriously. I wonder how many of us laugh when we hear “Citizen’s arrest! Citizen’s arrest!”
And then there was Matlock. Another great show. Again, Andy played a character with heart.
The last thing I saw him in was the Brad Paisley’s video, Waiting on A Woman. Not great quality but enjoy!
What are your memories of this great man?
A good friend sent this to me tonight. Thought it was perfect.
