R.I.P. Andy - you were a big part of my childhood and I always thought of you as a kind man - it was just how you portrayed yourself on TV yet I feel that you were in real life. 
 
Too bad they can't make wholesome quality shows like he did anymore. He was great!

R.I.P. (but this is a creepy picture /: )
 
Anna, I have every confidence he knows the Lord. He was one of the few actors who lived a wholesome life.
 
OH my God Andy Griffin used to trip me out alot!!
 
One of the great iconic actors. He will be missed but his legacy will last. Blessings to his family in this time of need.
 
Watch A Face In The Crowd, Griffith's profound movie, timeless commentary on the farce of Celebrity.
 
I am just glad to know that he knows Jesus. Life is not complete without Jesus. Enjoy your everlasting Andy...
 
I loved and watched all his tv shows. Mattock and Andy griffin, I loved them both. 
 
"You date one woman all the time and pretty soon people start taking you for granted. They don't say, "Let's invite Andy," or "Let's invite Elly." No, they say. "Let's invite Andy and Elly!" See, then it's "Andy and Elly"; "Elly and Andy". And then, that's when that woman gets her claws into you!" Sheriff Andy Taylor 
 
Search for his comedy album, recorded before he got his TV show.  It's full of raunchy, backwoods humor.  I was surprised by it when it aired on PBS series about TV pioneers.
 
Rest in peace Sheriff Taylor
 
Sad to lose a great actor.

The things we grew up with, watched shaped our lives "My 3 sons" "Andy Griffith show " with little Ron Howard.



I do know from a credible source that it was Joe Biden, the best friend of former Senator and MPAA boss Chris Dodd, who ordered his former lawyer and now state attorney Neil MacBride to take Mega down," Dotcom told the TorrentFreak website.
The White House logs show Mr Biden met with Warner Bros Entertainment chief executive Barry Meyer, Paramount Pictures CEO Brad Grey, the Motion Picture Association's Asia managing director Mike Ellis, MPAA chief executive Chris Dodd, Sony Pictures vice chairman Jeff Blake, Universal Studios president Ronald Meyer, MPAA global policy executive Michael O'Leary and Walt Disney Studios then-chairman Rich Ross.
 
I was born in 97 and didn't know about this show... All I knew was it was a highly acclaimed black and white tv show. I feel kinda bad that I didn't watch it :(
 
RIP I don't know who you where, but I bet you made black and white Tv amazing. 
 
Don Knotts & Andy. Great combo. Thanks for entertaining my childhood :-) RIP
 
forever will be missed.
forever will be seen on TV.
forever will be in our dreams
forever will be in our hearts
forever rest in peace.
 
Rest in peace, Andy. Thank you for the wonderful hours with the TV series "Matlock" in Germany
 
But why was he buried immediately, within a few hours after he died? No embalming. No funeral.
 
at least he lived a long good life and he will always be in our memory
 
I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT THEME SONG LOL
