The best way to describe Andy Griffith to someone who has never heard nor seen him would be America`s vision of what a great father is. Very warm, smart and country. For those who have never seen the Andy Griffith show, you have been missing out on what a great t.v. show is all about. Thank you Mr. Griffith for the enjoyment you have provided through your wisdom and humor. Ain`t nothing like an old school daddy and you are the best at it.
