Late actor George Lindsey was honoured by friends and family during a public memorial service in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday (11May12).
The Andy Griffith Show funnyman passed away on 6 May (12) at the age of 83 following a brief illness and fans turned out in their droves at the Westminster Presbyterian Church to pay their last respects.
Veteran actor Griffith sent along a touching statement that was read aloud for his former co-star, who played Goober Pyle on the long-running U.S. sitcom during the 1960s.
The tribute read, "George told me his fondest memories in show business were the years he spent working on The Andy Griffith Show and (spin-off series) Mayberry Rfd. They were for me, too."
Singer Ray Stevens performed Everything Is Beautiful in Lindsey's honour, telling the crowd, "He warmed a lot of hearts with his brand of humour - wholesome, American humour," and actor Ernest Borgnine, 92, who was unable to attend the event, sent in an emotional video tribute recalling the best moments he shared with his pal.
The Hee-Haw star is to be buried in his native Jasper, Alabama, according to the Associated Press.
