I heard the news about an hour ago. This is a day I did not want to see come. Those who know me know that The Andy Griffith Show is my favourite TV show (we watch it at least once a day) and Don Knotts was a big part of that. He was, in my opinion, the greatest TV comedy actor ever, and a fine gentleman. I met him once and he was as personable and nice as I could have hoped for. At least I have that (and an autographed photo).
You know what, I really am sad to hear that. He was always hallarious in Threes company and Andy Griffiths and I watched Plesentvill so many times (He was the TV repair man) And thought his apperance in 8 Simpal rules before John Ritter died was the funniest thing in the world.
