I wasn't quite old enough to remember when Mr. Lindsey finished his 7-year run with Andy Griffith, Mayberry/RFD. I know that I often sat with my Dad as he watched TV and, as I was growing up, we continued to watch and re-watch all of the reruns. We never tired of the many comic geniuses of that little town, whose one-liners and physical comedy graced the television screen.
Thank you, Goober, for sharing your warmth, talent and comedy with so many of us. It's a real accomplishment to be able to make others feel as if they know you, when they've only been as close to you as the TV screen in their living room.
God keep you and God bless your family, Mr. Lindsey.
