After her death, one of his daughters found him slumped in his room, crying, and unable to speak. She was not only the love of his life but also the inspiration for his most personal song, "I Am a Fool to Want You", recorded after their separation. Reportedly, a lone black limousine parked behind the crowd of mourners at her funeral. No one exited the vehicle, but it was assumed that the anonymous mourner was indeed him. A floral arrangement at her graveside simply read: "With All My Love, Francis".
