Giants Press Releases

Statement from Hall of Famer Willie Mays on the passing of Aretha Franklin

The older I get, it seems like the more "goodbyes" must be said, and the harder they are to say. I just heard that Aretha Franklin has passed. I've known Aretha since my early years in New York. We used to joke around. She was something! I just want to say to her family that I truly admired her as a singer and as a woman. I am so sorry we've lost her. Goodbye my friend, Willie Mays
