    I agree. I couldn't tell you how many times my dad and I sat and watched him over the years. My little guy even likes him. He will truly be missed. I know I will miss him.

    94lt1, you made me cry... that video didn't help at all! Probably taking care of my ailing parents has a bit to do with it...and the love of my step-dad (who is my "dad") for my mom is so much like Andy Griffith in this video. The Andy Griffith show mirrored my childhood. Life was so simple with lots of work but you smelled every rose. Here is to simpler times and good values. Thank you Andy!

    I just now got around watching this. I always like Brad Paisley, but now with what happened that is going to be one of my favorite videos. Thanks for finding & posting!

    He'll be missed. A class act and a gentleman. RIP Andy.
