As an actor, you had great skill.

When you left the Andy Griffith show, it lost most of its appeal.

My dad made a mistake sometime in the eighties when he said you passed away.

I was relieved to learn it wasn't true but sadly you really did die the other day.

You survived for over eight decades so you've lived a long life.

You were terrific as Ralph Furley and as Barney Fife.

When it came to the ladies, you were a smoothy.

I loved your TV shows and those Apple dumpling gang movies.

You were a talented star who died at the age of eighty-one.

You may be dead but fans will still have the privilege of seeing you in reruns.

Many actors and fans loved you a lot.

Goodbye Mister Don Knotts.
