I absolutely loved Andy Griffith to pieces and will miss him very much. I never saw him in a part I didn't like. We just watched him in the movie "No Time for Sergeants" a couple weeks ago. I read that his favorite role was "Matlock." My mom and I never missed an episode and we watched it in reruns too, and the same for "The Andy Griffith Show."
He was one of those people you just knew you could trust. He was so humble, honest, and caring. Now I kind of want to take a drive up to Mount Airy, NC (a few hours north of us), where he grew up.
