There are a few people on this big earth I don't know but I would like to thank them for being here. Andy Griffith is one of those people (also included: Carol Burnett, Betty White). Andy Griffith has ALWAYS been part of my life. I grew up watching the Andy Griffith show and he always felt so real to me that it was like he was an uncle or someone in my family. I just don't feel the same way about many stars today. There are very few people anymore who you feel like you know - and you've never met them.
When I saw this Brad Paisley video for the first time I was actually on the air. Big Mistake. I started crying because I couldn't imagine a world without Andy Griffith in it. It makes me sad that he is gone - but I am happy because he was here. I posted this video on facebook and my dear friend Dane Daniel's wife, Angie, posted that Dane was the first in line to meet Andy today. I'm sure he was. Dane loved meeting people and he certainly wouldn't miss the opportunity to meet Andy Griffith. RIP to the both of you.
