Doris Remembers Andy Williams

Carmel, Calif. -- Doris Day made the following statement on the passing of her friend and musical colleague, Andy Williams today:

"The loss of Andy Williams will be felt not only in the music world, but to everyone in the world. Andy was a dear friend of mine, and we've known each other since we were kids in Cincinnati. He and his brothers sang and, of course, so did I, and often I would go over to their house and we would sing together. They asked me to join their group, but my vocal coach thought I should be out on my own and so that's what I did.

Andy and I kept in touch over the years and just recently, even when he was so sick, he wrote to congratulate me on my new CD. He was such a sweet, thoughtful man and I will miss him dearly."
