We recently introduced our daughter to the Andy Griffith Show. Some of the best writing in TV history. I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

How old was Andy. He must have been in his 80's if not 90.

Partly because the one I had at the time I felt didn't do him justice, too brief. Afterwards I was looking around and one of the best was in the Kansas City Star.

...in real life she and Andy didn't get along well at all? I think years after the show they resolved some of the differences.

Tribute today on MeTV
by Willy / July 4, 2012 1:42 AM PDT
In reply to: Andy Griffith Dies

If you view MeTV, there will be a tribute of sorts, starting at 12noon. It run thru various shows where he appeared and the 1st show(pilot) of Andy Taylor introduction into TV hall of fame of sorts.

Andy was 86 when he died. As I recall, he did see his good friend(deputy Barney Fife) aka, lady's man Don Knotts a few yrs. back on his death bed. I recall also until illness and such, he still did plays, which got his start many yrs. ago.

It's a sad day. Well, what can one really say at times like these. -----Willy Sad
