Remember the finale of The Sopranos way back in 2007?
How everyone was so confused? Did Tony die? Was he in heaven? Hell? Purgatory?
Just sitting at a diner with his family musing on his life and what not?
Well the show's creator David Chase has always stayed incredibly tight-lipped on the finale, refused to answer questions about it, EVER.
But he's finally, FINALLY answered the question that every single Sopranos fan has even wondered — was Tony dead at the diner at the end?
David reluctantly answered:

The man who gave James Gandolfini the most iconic role of his life spoke Thursday at the late actor's funeral. The Sopranos creator, David Chase, decided to read to those in attendance a letter he had written to James after his death.
Chase recalled his time working with Gandolfini on the HBO series and also said he considered him a brother:
"I really feel that, though I’m older than you, that we are brothers. We have different tastes, but there are things we both love, which was family, work, people in all their imperfection, food, alcohol, talking, rage, and a desire to bring the whole structure crashing down. We amused each other."
Chase was the only member from the cast and crew of The Sopranos to speak. Gandolfini's wife and two friends also memorialized him.

We still can't believe the great James Gandolfini is gone!
Mourners arrived in New York City on Thursday morning for the actor's funeral. Sopranos creator David Chase will be one of four people memorializing Gandolfini.
Also in attendance are former co-stars Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Aida Turturro, who played Tony Soprano's sister on the series.
Former TV talk show host Dick Cavett along with Alec Baldwin and his pregnant wife, Hilaria Thomas, were escorted through a side entrance at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine.
Around 1,500 seats have been set up inside the enormous Upper West Side cathedral. The funeral will be open to the public once invited guests have all arrived.

And it wasn't just the audiences that felt close to him. The cast and crew of The Sopranos became a kind of family, and they have been hit hard by the news of his passing.
Edie Falco's reaction was understandably heartbreaking. She said:

Oooh la la, what an enticing beauty Bella Heathcote is!
Vogue is really going to kill the September issue game, especially with their Australian cover featuring the fierce Dark Shadows actress.
She makes fronting the mag look easy-as-pie in her red Christian Dior gown and veil, but Bella is no amateur when it comes to looking phenomenal.
Inside the mag, the star expressed everything from moving to El Lay, her upcoming film, Not Fade Away, and working with Baz Luhrmann.
Here are some HIGHlights

Don't get too excited, Sopranos fans, he's NOT taking the Sex and the City route!!
David Chase, creator of the HBO mafia drama, plans to direct his first feature film with Paramount Pictures!!
The untitled script, also written by Chase, is apparently a music-driven coming of age story about a group of guys who form a rock band in the '60s.
That's a pretty vague description, but it already sounds like Almost Famous to us!!!
We'll remain cautiously optimistic until more details emerge!! We still haven't forgiven him for The Sopranos finale!!
What do U think?? Will U go see David Chase's first film as a director??
