    Guilty of not knowing he was still alive. 92 is a pretty good run and he left a nice legacy behind. RIP.

    I remember watching the movie Spencer's Mountain and too young to know that it was what The Walton's were based off of. I was thinking the movie had ripped them off. Mr Hamner made quite a contribution to television back in the day, RIP!
