sargent shriver funeral

Maria Shriver and husband Arnold Schwarzenegger carried the casket of Sargent Shriver(pictured left) today at his funeral mass at Our Lady of Mercy Parish, the Shriver family's church in Potomac, Md. A lot of famous names turned up to pay their respects including President Bill Clinton, First lady Michelle Obama, U2's Bono and Oprah Winfrey.

Others on the guest list included Muhammad Ali, Clint Eastwood and congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, reports AP. Wyclef Jean played piano and sang All the Ends of the Earth as guests including the Shriver family clapped along. Later, Vanessa Williams sang Soon and Very Soon. At a wake held for Shriver on Friday, some of Washington's most notable figures extended condolences to the family. Shriver, the husband of Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, died Tuesday at age 95.

So a fitting tribute paid to the man at his funeral with many well known faces there to pay their respects.
