True story- in the late sixties, prior to my chauffeuring career, I worked as a funeral director for a large mortuary chain in Los Angeles. I was preparing for an evening rosary service and visitation for Frank DeSimone, an attorney rumored to have connections to the Mafia. ( My boss, Frank’s cousin, also a DeSimone, insisted, with a straight face, that there was no such thing.) There were lots of floral arrangements, including a large one on which the card read, “Louie and the Boys, Chicago.” It turned out that the deceased Frank DeSimone was the boss of the Los Angeles crime family. His cause of death was natural- a heart attack. He was present at the 1957 meeting of Mafia bosses in America at the Appalachin, New York rural estate of Joseph “Joe the Barber” Barbara. The FBI and other agencies raided the meeting and arrested some of the attendees.
