Rest in Peace Andy

Andy Griffith, sheriff of Mayberry, was one of my favorite television characters of my childhood. I still watch the show weekday evenings. I particularly admire the way Andy was protective of the incompetent, lovable, cousin deputy Barney Fife. Life was never as simplistic as it was portrayed in the program, but how I wish it was. Rest in Peace Andy.

  2. In one of the earliest episodes, Barney was introduced as a cousin to Andy. After the first year, that idea was dropped.
