"Thanks for the memories..."

"Golf is my real profession; show business pays my green fees." -- Bob Hope

At the Bascilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, there is a chapel funded by Bob and his devoted wife Delores -- Our Lady of Hope. A fond farewell to a man whom I could say that I once had the pleasure of meeting. Rest in peace, thou good and faithful servant.

"So, thanks for the memory
And strictly entre-nous, darling how are you?
And how are all the little dreams that never did come true?
Aw'flly glad I met you, cheerio, and toodle-oo
And thank you so much."

(Words and Music by Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger, introduced in the film "Big Broadcast Of 1938" by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross)
