Andy Griffith dies at age 86

Andy Griffith died this morning around 7:00 am at his North Carolina home. He was 86.

Photo from the television program The Andy Griffith Show. When Andy returns from a trip, he finds that Barney has managed to put all of Mayberry’s citizens behind bars in the town jail.

Andy Griffith was a pleasant and constant fixture in many people’s childhood. That includes me and my brothers. The Andy Griffith Show was another world we wanted to be a part of. With four kids to support, my parents didn’t have the budget to send us all to summer camp. Instead, we watched Andy Griffith reruns all morning before heading out with our bikes to roam the neighborhood – a neighborhood that we imagined to be our very own Mayberry. Andy Griffith was part of a carefree routine that made us love summer.

One of my favorite episodes: The Pickle Story!! (a.k.a : Kerosene Cucumbers)

Season 2 – Episode 11: Andy, Barney and Opie find themselves in a real pickle when they pretend to love Aunt Bee’s homemade “kerosene cucumbers.”

With the outpouring of tweets, it’s evident that he was loved and will be missed by many. Rest in peace, Andy.
