Sadly, this week the world lost Andy Griffith.
I was deeply saddened by this. Why? Because since I was a kid I've been watching Matlock. Yes, he's known for his hit show Andy Griffith but I loved him as the ace, defense attorney Benjamin Matlock.
I've seen every episode at least 20 times. I'm even low balling that number. No joke.
I can remember watching it with my mom as a kid while at her workplace. I can remember being sick and home from school with my grandma. I can remember watching it in high school and college. I can remember watching it while I was living in Alabama and it being something familiar from home.
Plus Andy Griffith and my grandpa were so much a like. Besides their physical appearance they had so many character and mannerisms that were so similar.
Now that I'm moving to California, it'll be something that I watch and I'll always associate all these memories. I know I'm certainly sad that he's gone now.
