RIP Andy, you were and always will be loved by many.
I have a few episodes that stand out, but loved all the episodes that Don Knotts starred in with him. I never could get passed his Andy Taylor character, to enjoy him as lawyer, Matlock. It just didn't seem right to me, to see him in a court room when he should still be in Mayberry dealing with Ernest T Bass and picking his guitar on the front porch. Much love to one of God's latest angels coming home.
added note, yes, his role as sheriff on The Danny Thomas Show I believe was the lead into The Andy Griffith Show.
God bless to his family
