Dear Friends,

I was saddened at the passing of Andy Griffith on Tuesday. Americans of all persuasions truly loved him, even though many of us in TV Land have never met him in person. 'The Andy Griffith Show' continues to be my favorite show of all the sitcoms ever produced. The warmth and the sincere exuberance of decency, honesty and respect for one's neighbors were represented in every storyline, as a heartfelt embrace traveled magically across the TV screen. I enjoyed the relationship between Andy and his son, Opie. The advice given to Opie by a caring and loving Father when circumstances require thought or discipline, were examples in which discernment flows from one's lifelong acquisition of true wisdom.

While Andy, his family and many friends, Opie, Barnie, Aunt Bee, Helen, Thelma Lou, Floyd, Gomer, Goober, Otis, The Darlings, Ernest T, Howard, Clara and others I can't seem to remember just now, were blessed to be in the company of a great soul. While shows of this caliber are nowhere to be found in production today, I have fond memories of uproarious streams of laughter during a time of great stress as a child, so many years ago.

There will be a day when many of us will become inhabitants of a town as endearing as Mayberry. I reckon it will not be in our lifetimes, but I know full well when the Lord calls us home, Mayberry might just be our destination. Our condolences to Andy's family and friends. Andy Griffith will be greatly missed.

Thanks Again
