I just loved him. I always love hearing the Christmas song he sang. I think it is titled " It's the most wonderful time of the year" Cancer sucks big time. It seems that more and more of us are getting it.

OMG, I can't stop sobbing! I am just heartbroken to hear this. I loved him since I was a kid , when we watched all his Christmas specials. He discovered so many talents. He just seemed like a wonderful , kind, sincere, humble man. God Bless you, Andy. Thank you for your beautiful gift!! Heartfelt condolences all his family and friends. This Christmas won't be the same knowing he is gone.

Andy Williams was a quintissential crooner. No gimmicks, no autotune, the man stood on a stage with a microphone and transported you with his amazing voice. His signature song was Moon River. Every time I heard that song I recalled the cat in the rain scene from Breakfast at Tiffanys. Every time I watch that movie and see that scene I get teary eyed, and that;s saying something. RIP Andy Williams, crooner extrordinaire.

...and as I am reading about the passing of this truly talented and wonderful entertainer, I look to the right of the screen and see a pic of Kim Kardashian, talentless and vapid...making it even sadder that one more person is gone from 'the greatest generation' and look what we now are stuck with...people that are famous for being famous...or famous for making sex tapes, to boot :(
