This poor guy wanted to marry Ethel Kennedy. Can you imagine him trying to take control of those kids lives and get that wild bunch under control? That would have killed him WAY before cancer did.

The man was a wonderful singer and brought joy to many. To bad the our society thinks of reality stars as being famous. This man was famous and had talent, plain and simple.

I love Andy Williams, not only was he handsome, his voice was so beautiful. He lived a very clean and respectful life. We need more people like him today.
R.I.P. Andy.

R.I.P. Thanks for blessing us with your beautiful voice and music. I'm not old enough to fully appreciate him but still heard his Christmas songs and TV Show. Heaven is proud of yet another great singer to fill their choir.

Is his former wife,Claudine, still living? Remember when she got off for murdering her ski instructor boy friend (I think his name was Spider Savage?)
