Andy Griffith died this week. He spent many years playing the lead detective on the show Matlock. You’ll best remember him for the television show in black and white called “The Andy Griffith Show”. If you’re like me, you’ll probably have fond memories of his character Sheriff Taylor. On the show he was law-abiding and a gentle father… a father figure many of us would like to have. Andy Griffith was born in North Carolina, went to college there (UNC Chapel Hill) and died there. He loved the state and thousands loved him.
