THE TIDINGS reports ...

Two years to the day legendary entertainer Bob Hope died, family members and friends attended a dedication July 27 of the Bob Hope Memorial Garden at the San Fernando Mission in Mission Hills, created as an inspirational final resting place for the beloved comedian.

The dedication ceremony and Mass, with Cardinal Roger Mahony presiding, was the culmination of months of planning and construction at the historic San Fernando Mission. Bob's wife Dolores chose the mission for her husband's burial place because of his abiding love for the San Fernando Valley, where the couple raised four children and attended St. Charles Borromeo Church in North Hollywood.

Who knew it was possible to have an "abiding love" for the Valley.

Ah, I love how history is whitewashed. I live in an apartment Bob Hope used to rent out for his mistresses. Sounds like he deserves a garden alright.
