I believe the general consensus was that it was probably an intentional overdose. Especially with the note in his pocket.

Interesting list, but no entry was as great as the Glen Miller one.

I call bullshiat.  This guy was 100 years old and he and his wife never discussed where he wanted to be buried until he was issuing his dying words?  How many people that old, with money, do you think leave that kind of thing undecided?

Not that I think you're wrong, but it is plausible. I have personal experience with people facing death that do not want to talk about it. Denial is a survival mechanism. Plus, having money actually reduces the need to plan in advance.

Well, as Zach Hope tells the story, he and Delores had discussed several possibilities (it was rumored that he had been offered a spot at Arlington National Cemetery). In the end he was interred at the Bob Hope Memorial Garden (which he established as a place for show business people to be buried) at the San Fernando Mission Cemetery, which was where they had already decided he would be buried, but they had not picked out the plot.

Not as far as burials and funerals go.  As far as estate planning, yes, doing it well ahead of time makes sense, but not everyone does.  Pablo Picasso died without a will, with multiple wives, mistresses and a raft of children.  It took twenty years to settle his estate, and the family finally ended up donating a huge collection of his artwork (covering every period) to the French government to cover estate taxes.

/it's now a really nice museum in Paris.

Thereis some speculation his mother delivered the shot that killed him. She too was an addict. He had been taking Heroin all day, and could not steady his hands to hit a vein. According to the woman whose apartment where he OD'd, His mother went in the room and shut the door, an perhaps mainlined him.

There is a Brit series called 'Last 24 Hours" Sid's episode you can find on YT

"Nobody will think anything about it."
-Abraham Lincoln, responding to a comment by his wife Mary, who asked what people would think about them holding hands.

George Seaton, during what turned out to be his final visit with his friend, actor Edmund Gwenn (Kris Kringle from the original Miracle on 34th Street) at the Motion Picture Country House:
Seaton: "All of this must be terribly difficult for you, Teddy."
Gwenn's reply: "Not nearly as difficult as playing comedy."

Sir Thomas More, being placed on the block, reportedly moved his beard out of the way, saying "This has not offended the King."

Author H.H. Munro, during WWI: "Put that bloody cigarette out!"

Queen Marie Antoinette after she accidentally stepped on the foot of her executioner as she went to the guillotine: "Pardon me, sir. I did not do it on purpose."

And...

Humphrey Bogart: "I should never have switched from scotch to martinis."

The funny thing is that Bob really should have laid better plans.  Back in the 1960s, he built this huge (like 18,000 sq ft) house in Palm Springs, with the intention that it would become a museum after he and Dolores died.  The kids now have it on the market for over $50 mil, so there's not going to be any museum.

/Supposedly, it was so big that the Hopes continued to live in their old house and used the big house only for parties.
