a 1946 song sung by Frank Sinatra, who died on May 14 in 1998 at age 82 of a heart attack after suffering several years of declining health. He lived a long and full life, receiving many awards, is one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, and was successful both in his music and film careers. He was married 4 times, had 3 children, and died a practicing Catholic.
He is reported to have said, "I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living his life, and who had good friends, a fine family. I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually." I can't think of a better way to be remembered.
