Requiem For Yogi

Yogi Berra "personified the American dream." That's what loved ones said about the iconic Hall of Famer and legendary Yankees player at his funeral in Montclair, New Jersey.

Berra passed away at the age of 90 on September 22nd.  He was laid to rest after a beautiful funeral service held at the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

The family arrived to the service escorted by a large police motorcade. Friends and teammates, both past and present, trickled in through the front side doors.

Hall of Fame Yankee Reggie Jackson, comedian Joe Piscopo, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani were all in attendance.

Dozens of fans gathered outside the church as Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan led the service.
