Heath Ledger Unforgettable Memorial Service

This is just what everyone really needs, some closure and life goes on no matter how much it hurts!! Heath, you will be missed!!
Following a memorial at Penrhos College for hundreds of mourners, Michelle Williams, escorted by police, arrived with a small entourage of Ledger's closest family for a more intimate service at Fremantle Cemetery, just outside Perth, Australia. The chapel at Fremantle, which was blacked out with sheets and scaffolding, has only eight wooden pews and a lectern.
There, Williams read William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 (“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”).

Less than an hour after arriving, the mourners were spotted putting their arms around a clearly distressed Williams and hugging the chaplain in gratitude as they departed.
From there, they headed to the Indiana Tea House on Cottesloe Beach, where attendees from the earlier memorial could be seen smoking and drinking beer and red and white wine on the patio of the establishment, which has a spectacular view of the ocean. Williams was visibly shaken and looked like she had just been crying when she entered the restaurant.

I am so saddened by his tragic death. My teenaged daughters and their friends "introduced" me to this handsome young Aussie with the gorgeous grin when he starred in The Patriot. From there we went on to watch him--over and over again--in A Knight's Tale. I was so moved by the depth of his portrayal of Enis del Mar in Brokeback Mountain. I told my daughter after watching that movie, "This is what real movie making is all about." I am sorry my daughters and I will not be able to enjoy more of his remarkable performances.
