USA: CALIFORNIA: MOURNERS GATHER FOR FUNERAL OF SONNY BONO UPDATE

Fond farewells were bid to U-S lawmaker, and former entertainer, Sonny Bono at a funeral service in Palm Springs, California, on Friday.

Bono’s current wife and children, along with ex-wife Cher, were joined by representatives from Washington.

The 62-year-old died in a skiing accident on Monday.

Singer and actress, Cher, arrived at Saint Theresa Catholic Church in Palm Springs, California on Friday afternoon accompanied by daughter Chastity.

She joined hundreds of others, from entertainment and political circles, to remember the life of Sonny Bono.

Cher, who was formerly Bono’s wife, cut short a trip to London to attend the funeral.

She was joined by Bono’s current wife Mary, and her two children.

The two-term Republican congressman died on Monday when he hit a tree on an intermediate slope at the Heavenly Ski Resort in South Lake Tahoe.

He was on holiday with his family at the time.

The tragedy came just as Sonny Bono was hitting his stride in his second term as a U-S congressman.

Bono went from citizen, to entertainer, to mayor of Palm Springs and then on to Congress as a representative of Southern California.

Mourners came from the entertainment industry, where Bono rose to pop music and television stardom as songwriter and singer alongside former wife Cher.

They also came from Washington D-C, including House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a 100-member congressional delegation, and Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt – representing President Bill Clinton.

They paid tribute to Bono, who as the outsider who came to Congress in 1994 as something of a joke, went on to earn the respect of fellow Republicans, and Democrats as an able politician.

A military honour guard carried Bono’s coffin, draped by the U-S flag.

He was remembered during the service as someone who could be counted on as a loyal friend.

SOUNDBITE: (English)
“When he was with you, he was with you and not off with somebody else. His mind was with you, his thoughts were with you and he showed a genuine interest and concern in your presence, in what you had on your mind. That’s how he was single-minded, how he was single-hearted.”
SUPER CAPTION: Reverend David Andel

And it is that sense of friendship that many gathered here believe will be Sonny Bono’s lasting legacy.

SOUNDBITE: (English)
“He was somebody who was, in a sense, a friend of everybody. A friend of many, many people and peacemakers are friends of most people. They have very, very few enemies.”
SUPER CAPTION: Reverend David Andel

Bono will be buried later on Friday with military honours.

Hundreds of mourners gathered in Palm Springs, California, on Friday to bid farewell to U-S lawmaker and entertainer, Sonny Bono.

Bono’s current family, along with ex-wife Cher, were joined by people from Hollywood, and representatives from Washington.

Bono died in a skiing accident on Monday.

A somber Cher arrived at Saint Theresa Catholic Church in Palm Springs, California, on Friday afternoon accompanied by daughter Chastity.

They joined hundreds of others from the entertainment and political arenas, to remember the life of Sonny Bono.

Cher, ex-wife of entertainer-turned-lawmaker Bono, cut short a trip to London to be at the funeral.

Bono’s life was cut short in a skiing accident last Monday, just as he was hitting his stride in a second-term as a U-S congressman.

A colour portrait of Bono placed near the altar of the church was an image that for many, represented what they will remember most about the man.

The jovial entertainer, rose to pop music and television stardom as songwriter and singer alongside former wife Cher.

After later becoming mayor of Palm Springs, he went on to be elected to Congress, representing the area.

Mourners who filled the funeral pews included U-S speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, former Vice President Dan Quayle.

As colleagues, they paid tribute to Bono as the outsider who came to Congress in 1994 as something of a joke, but came to earn the respect of fellow Republicans, and Democrats, as an able politician.

California Governor Pete Wilson and Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt — representing President Clinton — also attended.

As a choir sang “Amazing Grace,” a military honour guard carried Bono’s flag-draped, mahogany casket into the church.

The two-term congressman from Palm Springs died at the Heavenly Ski Resort in South Lake Tahoe, where he was on holiday with his wife, Mary, and their children – daughter, Chianna, 6, and son, Chesare, 9.

Bono was killed instantly when he plowed into a pine tree on an intermediate slope.
