Andy Griffith, 1926-2012: R.I.P.

One of America's iconic actors has passed away.

I met him once, working as a desk clerk here in Charlotte, at what was then the Radisson Hotel uptown. He was staying in the penthouse suite and came down to the desk to get a luggage cart before the bell staff had arrived for the day. I offered to help him, but he said he'd be fine on his own.

In Mt. Airy, NC, they'll be mourning the loss of their hometown boy made good. Here are some photos I took on an expedition to Mt. Airy a few years ago.
