    Dammit. :( We're starting to lose our "TV parents"; this guy was one of them and everybody knows him. RIP, Andy, and thanks for being there sand being a good lawyer, too (Matlock). I know what tune I'll be whistling today.

    Sad to hear
    The Andy Griffith Show was a part of American culture

    My generation knew him better as Mattlock. Talk about being able to stay relavent for many generations.

    Elia Kazan's "A Face In The Crowd" was a prescient depiction of the influence of TV. Griffith was blilliant, as was Pat Neil.

    I know his TV series really made him famous, but "A Face In The Crowd" demonstrated impressive acting chops.

    RIP

    He will be greatly missed. I always thought he was an excellent actor and a wonderful person.

    Yep, ditto to what has already been posted. I grew up on Andy Griffith reruns and my mom loved Matlock. Let's not forget his wonderful gospel albums as well.
