Family and Friends Lay Heath to Rest

2/9/2008 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle Williams arrived for today's memorial service for her former fiancé, Heath Ledger, arm-in-arm with Heath's sister, Kate.

The service was held at Penrhos College in Perth, Australia. Ledger's father, Kim, said the service would be followed by a private funeral -- he requested privacy and did not reveal the time or location.

"The funeral will be very, very private and there will only be 10 people there, immediate family and nobody else,'' he told reporters. "It's a pretty sad time. We're finding it difficult to cope by ourselves, let alone cope with everybody around the world. Having said that, we do really appreciate the outpouring and the emotional support from all over the globe."

It is sad he died but he killed himself. I'm 38 and I have always been taught to avoid drugs and never mix prescription meds. Drug education begins in elementary school. As much as we would like to think otherwise, Heath was just another selfish Hollywood junkie. The real sadness is that he left an illegitimate daughter behind. Great father.

This whole funeral frenzy lasted wat too long. He was only an actor with a little bit of fame. He lacked for nothing in his life and yet he hurt a lot of people in the end. Shame on him

This whole funeral thing was epic. He was not some humanitarian or Nobel prize winner. Just another entitled, ungrateful hollywood person.
