My BEST scene of the Walton's is when Pres. Ike's body is on the train going thru their area, and John says,"Night Mr. President." That gets me EVERY TIME on the reruns. %(
John reminds me so much of my Dad. My Dad's looks were EXACTLY like John's. We often teased my Dad, as being John's "forgotten bro." They could of had been twins. It was so ERRIE in watching the show and seeing my Dad.
There will never be another show like the Walton's, IMO that touched our hearts as much as that show did, because my parents lived thru those years as they did, and often commented that it was "true to form" on the events that actually took place.
I am still enjoying the Walton's after all these years.
GBU Ralph's family, tv and personal. May you all find comfort in knowing how much Ralph was loved on the Walton's and NCIS. :]
