  1. Andy Taylor was the Will Rogers of Mayberry. His tolerance of the differences of people will be remembered and honored as long as people are able to watch The Andy Griffith Show. There is no other actor like him. His range was vast and very few knew that. RIP, my friend, Andy Griffith. I’ll always think of you.
