Just heard about Andy Sachs. Very sad....— John Cleese (@JohnCleese) December 1, 2016
I knew he was having problems with his memory as his wife Melody told me a couple of years ago...
So sad that Andrew Sachs has died. A true friend and a kindred spirit. I still have the wonderful baby pictures he took of my children. RIP.— Tony Robinson (@Tony_Robinson) December 1, 2016
