News of Barbara’s death at the age of twenty-nine shocks and saddens the world. Her parents—William and Rose—and family, besieged by reporters, hopelessly try to come to terms with their loss. This chapter revolves almost entirely around the aftermath of Barbara’s passing. In accordance with Barbara’s dying wish, her fans are given a final chance to say good-bye. Descriptions of her funeral and interment are then provided, including the unprecedented pandemonium that erupts as thousands mob her service in downtown Los Angeles. Barbara’s reflections upon her life, many of them disclosed a year before her passing, conclude the chapter.
