Andy Griffith (1926-2012)

If you’re like most people who grew up watching “The Andy Griffith Show,” Andy seemed more like a member of your family than an actor on television. Born on June 1st, 1926, Andy had just celebrated his 86th birthday about a month ago when he died on July 3rd.

His wife, Cindi, who was by his side as always when he left this life, said, “Andy was a person of incredibly strong Christian faith and was prepared for the day he would be called Home to his Lord. He is the love of my life, my constant companion, my partner, and my best friend. I cannot imagine life without Andy, but I take comfort and strength in God’s Grace and in the knowledge that Andy is at peace and with God.”
