Heath Ledger Remembered

2/9/2008 9:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Over 300 family members and friends attended a 2-hour tribute to celebrate the life of Heath Ledger today in Australia. Heath's 2-year-old daughter made an appearance in a video montage, which included a song written by Ben Harper just for Matilda, called "Happily Ever After in Your Eyes."

Close family members later traveled to a small chapel where an emotional Michelle Williams paid tribute to the father of her child and read Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" The family then joined fellow mourners at a restaurant on the beach. According to People, the actor's remains were cremated later in the day.
