    This was a nice article about Jim Nabors’ husband Stan Cadwallader.
    I was a great fan of Jim Nabors’ I loved him on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Gomer Pyle.USMC” I have the TV series on DVD. Jim owned 25 percent of “Gomer Pyle, USMC” and 75 percent of “The Jim Nabors Hour”. I would like to see Jim’s variety show on Blu-ray or DVD. I also believe that “Gomer Pyle, USMC” should be on Blu-ray.
    I’ve seen Jim Nabors on numerous variety shows. I miss him very much.
    I met Jim in the Summer of 1971 when he was here in Dallas, Texas opening the 1971 Dallas Summer Musicals. I met him about a month after I finished my Sophomore year in high school. He was really nice to me. I didn’t know he was GAY back in 1971, if I knew, I wouldn’t care. I’ll still would love him.
    I still Jim Nabors even though he’s no longer with us. I have made a scrapbook of him.

  2. I still love Jim Nabors even though he’s no longer with us. I believe someone should write a biography of Jim Nabors and do a movie biopic on him. He deserves the recognition he deserves, even in death. Jim Nabors really didn’t get much recognition when he was alive.
