Heath Ledger’s rep has announced that there will be no Public service for Heath. There was talks of a public service, but this isn’t going to happen. There’s rumors that he’s going to be buried in Perth and that there’s going to be a memorial service in Los Angeles, but none of this has been confirmed. I’m pretty sure it won’t be confirmed. His family wants to keep things private. They probably don’t want any live feeds or anything like that outside of Heath’s funeral. His family have also written messages in the West Australian newspaper that were published today.
His mother wrote:
Our darling boy, special in so many ways to all of us. You knew you were so loved. You lived life with courage and daring and we are so grateful for the wonderful times we shared. We will be there for Matilda.
His father wrote:
My beautiful boy, so loving, so talented, so independent, so caring, so young . . . no more chess games mate . . . this is it, couldn’t beat you anyway!
My body aches for the sound of your voice, our chats, our laughs and our life and times together.
Your truly varied artistic skills, insatiable desire to improve and eclectic abilities set you apart from any other person on the planet . . . it had only just started for you … and for us to further enjoy. We were one, in soul and commitment. Just . . . Father and Son. I will love you forever, Dad.
