Daydream Believer

Davy Jones’ Family Thanks Fans For Support

Davy Jones‘ four daughters have thanked fans of the late singer for the outpouring of support they’ve received since their father’s death last week.

The 66-year-old Daydream Believer hitmaker died after suffering a heart attack at his ranch in Florida.

He was remembered at a private service in Florida on Wednesday, attended only by his immediate family members, and now his grown-up children Talia Jones, Sarah McFadden, Jessica Cramer, and Annabel Jones have reached out to fans to express their appreciation for all of the touching condolence messages.

A statement issued on Thursday reads, “Our family has been greatly comforted by the support and love of everyone who reached out to us.

“Knowing that so many people around the world were so affected by our dad’s life and music makes us feel connected to you all. You are in our thoughts and hearts.”

Talia and Sarah are Jones’ children from his first marriage to Linda Haines, while Jessica and Annabel were born to the singer’s second wife, Anita Pollinger.

Jones’ The Monkees bandmates stayed away from the private funeral and cremation out of respect for the singer’s wife and children.

His ashes will be returned to his native Manchester, England, where a public memorial is expected to be held next week.

Memorials To Honor Monkees Singer Davy Jones

The heart attack that killed Monkees heartthrob Davy Jones came while the singer was in his stable surrounded by his beloved horses.

The star’s spokeswoman, Helen Kensick, offered the detail Friday, two days after Jones died in Florida.

She says Jones spent his final days surrounded by family and riding horses before his sudden death.

A funeral in Florida will be private. Kensick says public services to honor Jones will be held in New York and in England, though the details have not been finalized.

Jones rocketed to stardom in the 1960s as a member of The Monkees. Though their television show lasted just two years and the group ultimately broke up, they have endured with such chart-topping hits as “I’m a Believer” and “Daydream Believer.”

Jones was 66.
