worldisdigital 4 years, 6 months ago on Andy Griffith will be missed by many

I know what you mean - I will miss him too. The one consolation, though, is that Payson has some of the wonderful characteristics of the fictional town of Mayberry. There is a kindness, a friendliness and a down to earth quality that exists in the people who live here. There's also a bit of a slower pace here that is just lovely. That in itself is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the valley. And then of course there is the joy of being surrounded by such exquisite natural beauty that makes me grateful for Payson. So all is not lost! We may not have Mayberry, but we do have a piece of it here in Payson!
