A Tribute to Rick Grimes & Andrew Lincoln

I'm not ashamed to say that I am an emotional wreck as we near Rick Grimes' final episode of The Walking Dead. I have been watching Rick's apocalyptic adventures for eight years and it feels like I am losing a beloved member of my family. This is the first time I have ever been so attached to a fictional character. It is kind of odd, I know, but I cannot deny my feelings. Now I understand how Carl fans felt when he was killed off the show. It is going to be rough next week and I will be in tears for sure. I already teared up from this week's episode.

I am a man of few words these days but I wanted to do a tribute to Rick Grimes and Andrew Lincoln the only way I know how: with photos and videos from over the years.

A Tribute to Rick Grimes & Andrew Lincoln

My goodbye video to Andy Lincoln as Rick Grimes.

"Everything's gonna be all right," says Andy Lincoln as I lean in for a hug at Walker Stalker Atlanta 2017.

"Spicks and Specks" - My favorite Rick Grimes moment from The Walking Dead.

Of all my autographs, these two are my favorite. I wrote a letter to his office in the UK back in 2012. He sent me back these incredible autographs, wishing me a "stubbly" 2013 after I said how much I admired his stubble beard. What a great guy to take the time to read his fan mail!

Some of my favorite Rick Grimes photos.

Another great scene of Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead.

And finally, this is how I feel that Andy is leaving the show...
