Mr.Williams…You Will Be Remembered…

Memory…

I too, have to pay some kind of tribute to one of my favorite singers

Andy Williams… passing away at age 84… this week…

I stopped to think of how old I was… compared to him… He born in 1928 and me in 1949… 21 years difference… So, yes… I probably had a small crush at that time on this handsome guy singing just to me on the small black and white  TV screen in our living room…

I was probably around 12-13 years of age when I was enthralled with his wonderful songs of… Moon RiverDays of Wine and RosesBorn Free …Love Story  and my favorite Christmas song… It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!…

I couldn’t wait for his show to come on… His specials were amazing to me… especially the Christmas ones… dressed in sweaters … singing with all that artificial snow  falling all around … his lovely family

And when he introduced the Osmonds to our little TV set… I was hooked again…

Donny and little Marie … Singing their little hearts out… It was so fun!…

I was able to go watch one of his Christmas specials here in Louisville… and I enjoyed every minute of it!…

You left a lot of Happy Memories for people of my generation, Mr. Williams

God Bless!
