    Earl Hamner Jr., writer who created 'The Waltons,' dies at 92

    Earl Hamner Jr., a novelist and television writer who drew on childhood memories of life in the Virginia countryside to create "The Waltons," a family drama that defied expectations to become one of the most successful and popular TV shows of the 1970s and early 1980s, died March 24 at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 92.
    I loved this show back in the day and recently started to watch the reruns.

      Stacie L.,
      Count me in as I do watch the Waltons reruns when I have the time. I loved Grandpa Zeb and Jim Bob. I was hurt when it was announced that Hamner had passed away.
      Thanks for sharing.
