Unhappy G'bye, Deputy Fife

I just read on the Yahoo home page that Don Knotts, best known for his role as Mayberry's Deputy Barney Fife on the old Andy Griffith Show, has died. He was 81 years old.

Rest in peace, Barney. We'll miss you.

As a person who grew up in Mt. Airy, NC (home of a young Andy Griffith and the town Mayberry was based on), this is shocking. Thanks for posting the news. Very sad to the world that loved him, and personally saddening to me.

I just read the news on AOL.com a few minutes ago...how sad! Goodbye Barney, Mr. Furley, and TW the Turtle (Cat's Don't Dance)...you brought a lot of joy and laughter to us all.
