In one's lifetime there are iconic figures who leave a lasting impression both personally and professionally. Andy Griffith was one of those individuals who made an impression on me. I still to this day enjoy watching all of the Mayberry episodes. Here was a man who loved his work. It was always quite obvious by the way he played his role as sherrif,dad and friend. He made you feel good about life - even when times were tough you could watch a re-run of an episode and everything seemed to be okay - at least for a little while. I always wanted to live in Mayberry and for the past 10 years I HAVE lived in my own Mayberry, R.F.D. - thanks Andy for the memories - thanks for making life a little more bearable.
