USA: BEVERLY HILLS: MOURNERS BID FAREWELL TO FRANK SINATRA

666 ratings | 187629 views
Natural Sound Frank Sinatra fans gathered by the hundreds outside a church today as family and a who's who of the entertainment world came to bid a final farewell. More than 400 friends were invited to his noon funeral, a liturgy planned to feature uplifting music and remembrances by Frank Sinatra Jr., Gregory Peck and others. The Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church had been transformed into a forest of white flowers for the service. Sinatra's casket was blanketed with gardenias. Mourners who entered the church today included former first lady Nancy Reagan, Tony Bennett, Joey Bishop, Don Rickles, Paul Anka, Tony Curtis, Sophia Loren, Wayne Newton, Milton Berle and Dionne Warwick. Also seen were Red Buttons, Tim Conway, Diahann Carroll, Angie Dickinson, Marlo Thomas, Phil Donahue, Tony Danza, Ed McMahon and Tom Dreesen, the comic who opened for Sinatra for many years. As a skywriter sketched a white heart in the sunny sky, Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop of Los Angeles, followed a procession of altar servers into Good Shepherd Church to celebrate the noon Mass. A glossy white ticket with "Francis Albert Sinatra Funeral Mass" printed in purple was required to enter Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church, which was transformed into a forest of white flowers. Sinatra's widow, Barbara, and a family contingent were to later accompany Sinatra's casket to the Palm Springs area. The interment site at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City is where his mother, Natalie "Dolly" Sinatra, and father, Anthony Martin Sinatra, are buried. Sinatra was 82 when he died Thursday of heart failure.

Let the dead bury the fucking dead. There never was any true talent in this lot, just white folk patting each other on the back while white technology destroys mother earth at all levels.

One could recognize Gregory Peck, Tony Curtis, too fat, wearing a white toupee, Kirk Douglas, Tony Bennett, Sophia Loren, Liza Minnelli... Nothing but great names !! Instead of going to a wedding, they went to the funeral of the man who got John F. Kennedy elected president of America, because of his acquaintanceswith the mobster Sam Giancana !!

Tony Chuter Apart from Joey Bishop, who survived until 2007, Frank was the last of the Rat Pack to go. Even The Sands his now been pulled down. So sad that whole wonderful era is now only history...

Frank had it all, money, fame, connections, but no matter who you are, once you're dead life goes on without you. But saying that this was 21 years ago and a lot of these stars have also passed away, never more to have that warm Californian sun beating down on them.
Roger Martin (3 months ago)
He was ALWAYS jealous of Elvis looks and TALENT !!
James Feldman (6 days ago)
Not true. Frank and Elvis had mutual respect for one another and appeared and performed together many times. Sure, Frank and others in his circles, including Dean Martin, felt threatened by the wave of the new pop and rock stars of the early 1960s (just as the American pop bands felt threatened by the subsequent British "invasion"), but they all made peace, recognizing that the world is a big enough place for genres of all types to not only survive but to thrive. If you really want to get a handle on Frank Sinatra, the person and the artist, I'd recommend the book "Sinatra: The Life" by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan. They've done some incredible research and have taken a balanced, thorough, and objective look at one of the most complex artists of our times.

Thomas Raffa Sinatra was THE voice of the 20th Century. I understand Bing Crosby said, "He has a once in a lifetime voice, why it had to be in *my* lifetime, I'll never know.” I thank God that I was fortunate enough to live during Sinatra's lifetime, and during a time when I could hear music anytime I wanted. How rich we all are to live at this time and to have heard the Maestro sing. I thought it was so fitting that he should leave the earth at the end of the century he defined. His music willl live forever.

Look at ALL the money these "celebrities" have, and all because you spend YOUR money on them. For what. They don't give two shits about any of you "fans". You're a limousine "check" to them. They would never stoop low enough to hang/befriend/date/marry ANY of YOU that are paying ALL their bills and funding their mansions and vacations. Out of ALL their adoring fans, do you know any of them to seek out a "commoner" as a "companion" . Nope, these people ain't slumming it. JUSTIN BEIBER, guzzilians of women to choose from. He could grab up anyone one of em he wanted, WHO does he choose. Any of the girls that have cost their parents thousands of dollars on Beiberabilia. NOPE, he didn't "stoop that low" did he. They love you fans, for one reason, YOUR MONEY!

@Jeff McMillin it is reported and documented about his past. Hitlers and Sinatra. You dont need to be there in person to understand if they really were one thing.

@Jeff McMillin it's a matter of fact. There is no insult if we call Hitler a dictator when he actually was one.
Jeff McMillin (3 months ago)
@Tovar I'm tired of people making insulting statements about anyone they have personally known. If they can dish it out that better be able to take it. If anyone doesn't like it they need to keep it to themselves.

Patricia Walton (4 months ago)
Joan Beach. Frank's 1st wife, NancySr was there as well as Frank's 3rd wife, Mia Farrow. Barbara and Frank's kids were at odds because Tina and NancyJr felt Barbara had been trying to drive a wedge between them and Frank ever since she married Frank. I think Barbara was very jealous of Frank's relationship with his daughters, as they were very close to him. Tina and Nancy patched things up with Barbara when Frank passed away for a time, but afterward I think they stopped being in contact with Barbara.

Tremendous loss to the world when we lost Frank Sinatra on 5-14-98. What an artist he was. I like the white heart in the sky, how appropriate that someone did that! FS gave us almost 60 decades of beautiful music, which may be listened to by many until at least the end of this century, and maybe into the next! Thank you, Frank, for your music, which has lifted the spirits of so many for so long! It's been 20 years now, since he has been gone and it's hard to believe. I will always love his music; I will always remember meeting him several times and attending his concerts a number of times. RIP, FS.
M.J. Leger (3 months ago)
@Roger Martin No, Frank Sinatra was gracious to all of the singers in his era but he stated that Tony Bennett "had the best pipes in the business" and additionally, Elvis and Sinatra were two very different types of singers. They met on one show, but it was more for publicity than artistry! Sinatra was well known by then, Elvis was a great fad, while it lasted, but Sinatra's music is legend and far more lasting. If you're still around 3/4ths of a century from now, you will see and realize that! Sinatra's vocal range was far greater than Elvis, (who couldn't play more than about 4 chords on his guitar) and just wasn't the musician that Sinatra was; overall, there's just no comparison!

Very good for the style he sang BUT very limited .The real true singer was ELVIS and Frank knew this !
