    TV star, NC icon Griffith dies

    From WRAL TV (Raleigh CBS affiliate)

    "Manteo, N.C. Andy Griffith, who parlayed his youth in rural North Carolina into an award-winning television and film acting career, died Tuesday in Manteo. He was 86.

    Best known as Sheriff Andy Taylor in 'The Andy Griffith Show,' which ran for eight seasons on CBS in the 1960s, Griffith became an iconic television father figure. Two decades later, he played a crafty Southern lawyer in the NBC and ABC show 'Matlock.'"

    Well, we all knew it would happen one day... but I sure wish it hadn't. Hope he's up there with Barn having a blast!

    Thank you, Andy, for bringing joy and peace to all sorts of people for so many decades...rest in peace. You did well.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    I still watch Andy Griffith most every night before bed, via netflix. It's such a calming, relaxing way to wind down. Love me some Andy Griffith!

    I read somewhere that Danny Thomas (who produced the show) came up with the idea after a charming run-in with a southern cop, when Mr. Thomas went speeding through town. He was smitten with the cop, the town and the whole experience.

    So sad to see all these greats pass away!
