George Lindsey

You starred on Hee Haw and the Andy Griffith Show. You were talented and people hated to see you go. You continued to star as Goober on Mayberry R.F.D. Sadly you passed away at the age of eighty-three. People loved to see you act, that much is clear. You were a very funny man while you were here. You were Floyd the barber's friend and you wore a funny hat. You entertained millions for thirty years and people loved that. I'll see you in Heaven but it may be a while. You did a damn good job as Goober Pyle. (Dedicated to George Lindsey who died on May 6, 2012.)

A pleasure to read your poetry today Randy. I will try to come back later this week to read more. I have a spring cold and not up to reading for too long. Have a wonderful week. Love, Carol
