I’d always hoped to see Andy Williams perform one last time at his Moon River Theater in Branson, but as with so many things, I procrastinated too long. So, when I heard he died, I remember going outside on my back deck and listening to Moon River play on my iPhone.

- Must be your original haiku (which is typically seventeen syllables, three lines of 5-7-5 syllables each, but I won’t be a stickler.)
