legends reunite for Barbara Sinatra's funeral

legends came together on Tuesday to lay Barbara Sinatra to rest. 

Dick Van Dyke, Robert Wagner, Susan Somers and Tom Dreesen were among the hundreds who flocked to the service at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Palm Desert, California. 

Barbara died at her home in Rancho Mirage last week at the age of 90. Her death came 20 years after that of her famous husband Frank. 

At her funeral on Tuesday, speakers remembered the couple as charitable and full of life. They eulogized Barbara as a caring and determined campaigner for children.  

Her legacy is the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center at Eisenhower Hospital. It was founded in 1986 and has been funded ever since by donations given largely from the Sinatras' wealthy friends.

'She truly changed the world. She truly cared about everybody here,' Carina said of her late grandmother. 

Legendary screen actor Dick Van Dyke, 91, however, did. In his opening remarks, he joked: 'A reading from the book of Wisdom, without my glasses.'  

Dreesen, 77, also spoke. He said he wished Barbara had lived for 10 more years while Wagner, 87, admitted having a crush on her before she wed Frank. 

'I had wished we had become more than friends but that was not meant to be,' he said. 

Barbara was Frank Sinatra's fourth and last wife.
