my journey…shared in poems, prose and photos

RIP Andy Williams

9 Comments

A star “left the building” so to speak yesterday.

Andy Williams was one class act, IMO.  How I loved watching his show as a kid.

I was just reading yesterday that his career spanned 8 decades!

Here’s a link to Andy singing his beautiful , signature song: Moon River . It will always be one of my all-time favorites.

RIP Andy. You will never be forgotten

  3. Thanks, Ger.
    This was so pretty.
    Williams music was heard regularly in our home when I was a kid, and this is my favourite.
    I was sad to hear of his passing, but he had a fabulous life, and gave so much with his talent.
