Natasha Richardson Dead At 45

Natasha Richardson Dead At 45

Natasha Richardson has died, a spokesman for the family said.

The 45-year-old actress suffered brain injuries after a ski accident on a beginner slope in Canada on Monday. The difficult decision to pull her off life support was made this afternoon by family and close friends — Mom Vanessa Redgrave, husband Liam Neeson, aunt Lynn Redgrave, sister Joely Richardson, ex-husband Robert Fox and sons Michael and Daniel.

The following statement was just released: “Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Natasha, her family and friends.

omg :( :(

This so hard to believe, there have been so many conflicting reports.
Such a tragedy…very sad.

This is terrible news, and my heart goes out to her and her family.

this is a terrible trajedy for her husband, children and other family members. to loose a wife, a mother, a daughter/sister is not something i would wish on anyone. it’s also a double trajedy because this could have been prevented if only she had chosen to wear the helment; as the ski instructor asked her to do.

SUCH A TRADEGY FOR HER AND HER FAMILY! MY HEART GOES OUT TO THEM!

omg. so fast? what a tragedy… I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM AS THE PERFECT ELIZABETH IN THE PARENTS TRAP=(

My thoughts and prayers are with Liam and her sons. So very sad.

My prayers go out to her family. May she rest in peace.

fergie ferg @ 03/18/2009 at 6:50 pm

So young, so sad. RIP, sending strength to her family

Why would they even pull her off life support so soon? They should have given her some time because you never know. Tough descision but I don’t know if it’s right!

My prayers are with them!

I heart Natasha Richardson! What an amazing actress from an equally amazing family!
This is such a horrible tragedy!

I can’t stand the New York Post (for many reasons) this time they grind my gears for printing news from unconfirmed sources. We should respect the family, and wait for their official statement. Until then, the news media needs to report on only what they know is fact. It’s hard enough for the family at this time without being bombarded by false or misleading headlines.

It’s so sad. I still can’t believe it. My prayers are with all her family and friends…

Very sad:((((( God be with them all.

Natasha is such a pretty lady and very talented. What a tragic accident. God bless her and her family for having to make such a difficult decision.

My thoughts and prayers are with all her family. She is a beautiful human being.
Hey JJ, as much as this is a very sad time. It’s nice to see just about evryone agreeing on here for a change.

God Bless Natasha and her family.

This are sad news, she and Liam Neeson were a rare refined and talented couple in Hollywood. May she rest in peace.

So very sad, so very tragic. My heart goes out to the family. An amazing women who is too young to die. Thoughts and prayers. May you rest in eternal peace showered in gods love.

If this is true, why would they disconnect her so early? Makes no sense, miracles happen all the time in these cases.

Such a sad day….she will be terribly missed. You never know when it is your time to go…

bless the family

So beautiful, so young, so full of life, so tragic.

For those questioning her being taken off life support…….brain death is irreversible…..she is dead, machines are just keeping her heart beating. There is no hope in this situation.

She was so good in “Parent Trap”. This is so sad!

My prayers goes out to her family.

My prayers go out to her family.

omg this is sooo sad… my prayers are with her and her family

‘According to a source at the New York Post’….are you serious? Gossip columnists are now acceptable spokespeople for celebrities and their families?

LOVEFORFOUR @ 03/18/2009 at 7:40 pm

So sad.
I saw Leam Neesan, her hubbies movie, Taken, last night. The movie is really good. Then I got home and heard about his wife, I was very saddened with this news. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

so sad!! god bless her!!!

So sad! I know that brain dead means dead but they could’ve waited at least a week….hope for a miracle.

undone @ 03/18/2009 at 7:37 pm

Liz Smith, the gossip columnist, is tied closely into the Broadway gossip and knows anyone who is anyone. That is what people are taking seriously not the NY Post.

I really feel bad for her and her family. Life is so fragile sometimes.

Many prayers for the family at this difficult time!

such a sad news.
may she rest in peace.

So sad, She was so fabulous, I thought she was so funny in Maid in Manhattan with Jennifer lopez.

terrible terrible RIP

RIP Natasha Richardson. I loved her in parent trap. condolences to her husband and kids. so sad.

I wish her Liam, her sons and other family the best! RIP, Natasha, you’ll be missed

I am so sad. My favorite uncle died a few days ago and now one of my favorite actress. :-( RIP classy, beautiful lady. And RIP to my favorite uncle. You were both 45. You died to young.

R.I.P SO SAD, LIFE IS SO UNFAIR POOR KIDS.

a total fan @ 03/18/2009 at 8:51 pm

I can not grasp the news that she is gone. It just doesn’t seem real. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She was a classy lady and she will be truly missed.

All blessing to her family

ben/jen fan @ 03/18/2009 at 8:52 pm

May she rest in peace.

And I hope that her sons will be allowed some privacy to grief in peace also.

this is really sad. my heart and stomach dropped when first reading this on people.com. my prayers go out to Liam and his family. but i just wanted to say to those i think they shouldn’t had “pulled the plug” in these situations, she was probably much worse than thought to be. in this situation, it’s not fair to leave someone alive longer than they should be, when it’s there time it’s there time and it’s not fair to extend the dying period because of your own grief and hope for a miracle (which doesn’t happen that often)

I’m seriously having a hard time wrapping my brain a round this. I just can’t believe it. I’m so sad- she was such a talented, talented, and beautiful woman.

My love goes to her family.

Natasha was such a talent, with such class and compassion. The amount of time she spent with her charity work, and the apparent love between her and her husband and family was so beautiful…it is so hard to believe she is gone. The family is certainly in my prayers.

gossip junkie @ 03/18/2009 at 8:53 pm

I can’t believe this. She was so young, talented… She seemed like a wonderful woman. I hope her family finds the strenght to go through this. She will be greatly missed… May she rest in peace.

R.I.P. beautiful Natasha Richardson! What a tragic ending on behalf of her children, husband, and the Redgrave Family.

May she rest in peace.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
:(

It is indeed sad news, made even more cruel by those who would substitute their judgment for that of the family regarding removing life support. As one who has had to make that difficult decision, it is extremely painful and gut wrenching. I can’t bear to think of the additional pain that would have been inflicted upon me if anyone had had the gall to tell me when I was in the depth of grief that I should have waited a week.

Oh dear. This is very sad and the children are still teenagers.
.
May she rest in peace and her family and loved ones find comfort in each other.

That is so tragic and sad. I feel for her family. She is georgous. Rest in Peace.

RIP Natasha!

She was wonderful in the Parent Trap. RIP Natasha. My thoughts are with her family.

I don’t want to believe it, i can’t right now it’s so hard.

rebbbizzlee @ 03/18/2009 at 9:03 pm

such a tragic story. she was so talented and beautiful….my thoughts and prayers are with the family. R.I.P., girl. <3

I was just watching Parent Trap a few nights ago, this is very sad :( RIP Natasha.

myobservation @ 03/18/2009 at 9:08 pm

People, the decision to remove Natasha off of Life support was not premature. There is no hope for a dead brain unfortunately, and life support is only left on until they can confirm this and get the family to make the final call.
Natasha more than likely suffered from Walk and Die syndrome. It’s when a person suffers an injury to the brain and feels fairly fine until hours later. The best thing to do is to always seek medical treatment right away even in a minor accident. In her case, she waited until she had a headache later, and by then the blood was clotting and attacking her brain.
Sad, Tragic, and absolutely horrible for the family.

Im just crying i don’t find the words.

my condolences & prayers~

R.I.P. Natasha

God Bless The Family And Friends Through This Hard Time.

Terribly sad news. My heart goes out to her family at this awful time.

I think sometimes in our haste we forget that these are just people like us. They have the same tragedies as we all do. Such a shock. I hope we can all take away from this that these celebs are just people.

This is so tragic.
My love and thoughts are with her family. God love and help you all.
Another light dimmed too soon in this life.

RIP : Natasha Richardson
My condoleance to Liam Neeson, her sons, her other and her entire family.
+++++
She could have lived IF she went to a hospital immediatly after her falling, instead of going back to her hotel room for AN HOUR until she had a headeache…..

Then they took her to a local hospital but it was………. too late.
+++++

Richardson, whose father was the late director Tony Richardson, fell on Monday during a ski lesson on a beginners’ slope at Mont Tremblant, a resort about 80 miles (128 kilometres) north west of Toronto. She had not been wearing a helmet.

The ski instructor saw her fall and summoned the ski patrol to check her out, but Richardson laughed off suggestions that she get medical attention and returned to her hotel room. An hour later she complained of a splitting headache and was taken to a local hospital.

A spokeswoman for the resort where Richardson was staying said that the actress had showed no external sign of injury or bleeding.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article5926549.ece

++++++++++++++

How come she didn’t wear a helmet since she had a ski instructor beside her ?
++
How come her ski instructor and the ski resort owner didn’t INSIST that she should go to a hospital after the she was falling.
++
How come the ski resort owner said that actress had showed no external sign of injury or bleeding SO it was OK ????
++

my thoughts and prayers go out to her family. she is an amazing actress!

So unbelievable. I know her husband and young sons are going through it! RIP Natasha…RIP. =o(

This is so sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I hope they are allowed to grieve privately. What a tough and devastating decision they had to make. Really sad.

I want to send my symathy to the family of natasha.We all going to miss you.

If only she didn’t go to the ski on that moment, if only there is a time back machine that will rerturn,to avoid it , and told her don’t do this, if only she was sitting or eating on that moment and not on the ski but that’s her destiny i guess poor woman.

So sad. RIP.

This is so so sad. Poor Natasha. She seemed like such a great gal and she and Liam always looked so happy together. Rest in peace.

May Natasha rest in peace.
I will always love The Parent Trap.

omg this is saddening. she was a great actress and will be remembered. my p-rayers goes to her and her family

so sad!! her family is in my prayers!

so sad!! her family is in my prayers!

I didn’t know she satyed an HOUR on her hotel room, yeah why they didn’t take her immediately to the hospital, maybe she thought it was ok just a fall, but that the most dangerous whene there is no bleeding outside, the inside injuries and beelding are the most dangerous as the one my grandmother had she died by an inside injuries she was talking after her car accident and told them im ok don’t worry just look at my son if he has nothing…she died an hour before her arrival to the hospital, they’ve spent 1 hour because they were in the middel of the road, i find this kind of death really infair .

my thoughts @ 03/18/2009 at 9:36 pm

We all have such limited and predestined time on this earth. It was Natasha’s time to go. God was calling her home. May God bless her two sons and her husband in other ways. We should try to be nice to one another and to ourselves, and put a stop on all the hate that goes on these gossip blogs. Who knows how much time we each have left here on earth…Is the hate and the bickering and name calling really worth it? At the end you can only take the love with you to the next world, not the hate.

How sad….Demi Moore on Larry King tonight (phoned in) that this shows just how short life is, how it’s snapped away without notice..and to ‘try and find good in people, even one small thing”.
The posters who always feel the need to tear apart the two Jens on these boards , calling children ugly, fug, and worse, should take note.
God Bless this lovely, classy woman, she will be missed.

I still can’t believe it! It’s so sad :(
She was a great actress, so talented.
RIP

gossip gurl @ 03/18/2009 at 9:38 pm

Oh this is sooooooo sad!
My heart is breaking for those two boys and their father, and the whole family!
She seemed to be such a fabulous person! I remember seeing her on an episode of Top Chef, and she was super nice to the contestants.
:(
My prayers go out to the whole family!
I hope the press can give them the privacy that they have asked for to mourn in peace.

truley a tradgedy….sooo sadd

i wish her family the best
RIP

Heart-breaking; such a horrible loss for their family and the world. Natasha was a talented actress, loving mother and wife and humble person. She will be missed.

Its sooo sad, I have a feeling the ski resorts are going to hurt financially because of this. I wont go skiing ever again now….

So sad.
My thoughts & prayers are with her family in this hard time.

lips,tits smack that old ass. @ 03/18/2009 at 9:48 pm

Not true.I don’t want to believe this.

francesca @ 03/18/2009 at 9:50 pm

i cannot even imagine the pain her children are feeling
my deepest condolences to her whole family

<3

She was so young… how sad… may her soul rest in peace

I knew that she was going to die but I guess I wasn’t ready to believe that. When I saw the headline (for this article) I burst out crying. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain that her family is currently experiencing. Poor Liam left widowed and their children left without a mother at only 11 and 12 years of age. They are in my heart and thoughts. I shall think of them often and continue to pray for them everyday. May God be with them.

this is tragic .. my heart goes out to her family

It feels really weird for me.. cause I’m from Montreal and I go to Mont-Tremblant quite often… RIP Natasha.

This is not the time or the forum to judge such a personal choice. I can only imagine how incredibly heart breaking this was. We can only respect their decision based on advice from doctors (some of the best Im sure) and soul searching among themselves. Having been at the bedside of both my parents for thier passing they have my deep sympathies and I wish them privacy and peace for healing.

My heart goes out to her family so tragic life is so precious and short.

Aussie Girl @ 03/18/2009 at 10:01 pm

RIP Natasha I am sure her family would of summoned the best doctors they could, and their advice was unfortunately she had gone. The machines would not of been turned off, if their was hope!!!

She once said that Neeson’s serious injury in a 2000 motorcycle accident — he suffered a crushed pelvis after colliding with a deer in upstate New York — had made her really appreciate life.

“I wake up every morning feeling lucky — which is driven by fear, no doubt, since I know it could all go away,” she told The Daily Telegraph newspaper in 2003 http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/obit_natasha_richardson
Poor women.

I’m so sad and shocked. She was a great actress. RIP Natasha.

Aussie Girl @ 03/18/2009 at 10:08 pm

#147 I relize that you are upset, but what was the ski instrutor supposed to do, when his rich, celeb client laughed of suggestions of hospital! Should they have dragged her there, when there were no signs of injuries and she did not want to go!! I am sure she would of got the best care as soon as she asked for it!! It is terrible that this happened, but things like this happen all the time and it is not a law to wear a helmet on that mountain, maybe it should be on all ski slopes!!!! RIP Natasha!!

I can’t believe it….I am deeply saddened by her death, she was an amazing actress. My heart goes out to her family.

This is so sad! I remember her in the Parent Trap :( RIP

such a tragedy! my thoughts and prayers go to her family
may she RIP :(

I so respect this woman and her work she was an awesome actress and very well respected. I feel for her family and her children this is a terrible loss for the entertainment world. My condolences go with Liam, the children, Vanessa and the rest of the Natasha’s family..

So sorry to hear this. I was so hoping to hear all those wild rumors were false. My prayers are with the family. oh, those poor boys!

Sadfornatashasfamily @ 03/18/2009 at 10:17 pm

Such a tragedy for a woman to pass so young. My heart and soul go out to her family and everyone who has been touched by this incredible spirit. I will remember her performance in the Parent Trap forever and always. May she rest peacefully and eternally in the hands of the Lord.

This is just tragic! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

My heart goes out to her family. I couldn’t imagine losing my Mother at such a young age, and she seemed to have such a solid loving relationship with Liam.

Another reminder to us all just how fragile that life is.

So sad….my prayers are with her loved ones as the process their loss.

Rest In Piece
bless the family

Goodness Jared….isn’t there a more gentle way to headline this dreadful tragedy?
—-
You are very coarse and insensitive with your headlines sometimes.
Tsk tsk.

She was so elegant and classy, loved her on parent trap.
And was way too young to die.

I am so sad.. I really loved all her movies

this is soo sad. i heard she was in the hospital this morning and have been thinking about it most of the day. i, along with my family, are very sad to hear this..and our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

marci-you’re kind of a d-bag.

OMG i just saw her in Wildchild.. so sad, she was very talented. My prayers are with her and her family :(

So sad =( I’m literally about to cry rght now. Its funny how one day you are doing fine and a little thing like fallen could take your life away. That’s why I say to live life to the fullest and take life for granted because you never know when its all going to be over. RIP Natasha and my prayers go out to Liam, thier two sons, and the rest of her family.

my thoughts and prayers are with her family.

How sad, RIP Mrs. Richardson…

My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family (especially her sons). I’m 15 and I know her from The Parent Trap. She was an amazing actress. May she rest in peace.

Two words described actress Natasha Richardson: elegant and classy

So sad, loved her in the Parent Trap.

R.I.P.

I’m in horrified disbelief. This reminds me in some ways of the way we lost Grace Kelly. Natasha was so lovely, talented and grounded with her perfect, kind family. She was an actress who really, deeply understood her craft and seemed to live a rich, meaningful life.

This one will always be hard to understand and my prayers and blessings go out to us all, but most especially to Liam and her sons and of course her mother and sister.

So sad, i loved her in Parent Trap :(

BEAUTIUFL NATASHA…….R.I.P
thoughts and prayers go to her family and loving fans..xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

She was such a beautiful women filled with passion for acting and a presence to charm us all. I don’t know her personally but you don’t have to know someone to feel terrible about their death. She will be missed very much. All of my thoughts go out to her poor family. I can’t imagine how they are feeling. It’s such a tragedy. Falling and feeling fine until shorty after where your life, and the lives of others who cared about you, fall apart. This is such a terrible loss.

Rest in peace. Natasha Richardson.

to spicylily, thailand (aka # 123), have you ever felt a time where you got hurt and brushed it off, assuring everyone that you were fine? It’s happened to all of us. I’ve done it and I’m sure you have as well. It also happened to Natasha Richardson. The only difference is that what turned out to be ‘nothing wrong’ was something terrible. I highly doubt she saw something as tragic as this coming. You can’t ‘see’ a brain swelling up. Plus, something like that doesn’t happen immediately. It takes time, which is why she wasn’t rushed to a hospital right after it happened. The poor woman is dead. Have some class.

Whachagunnadoboutit @ 03/18/2009 at 11:19 pm

im very saddened by this… you never know whats going to happen! :(

This is so sad! But she is doing well right now, I’m sure. : ) RIP little lady.

statingtheobvious @ 03/18/2009 at 11:22 pm

Jared your headline is ridiculous.

This is tragic. Such a loss for the entertainment industry. Our thoughts and prayers to her friends and family.

I’m so saddened by this news – I was hoping the media were wrong in their reports. I am especially saddened for her boys and for Neeson. Prayers for the family and may she rest in peace.

My heart goes out to Liam, their children and her entire family. I am shocked and very saddened by this news. Such a classy and talented woman taken from her family and friends way too soon. My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with them all during this very difficult time. RIP Natasha.

Hey, I have the rights to raise questions and awareness.
I’m not unpolite or say anything bad about her or her family..

Don’t you know that the head is sensitive and most of the time the cause of death of head injury patiences are from the internal bleeding.
Of course, you will not see this bleeding from outside but it is very dangerous.

I don’t want to waste time arguing with anyone but she was not alone.
There were the ski instructor, the ski resort owner, etc…

+++++

have you ever felt a time where you got hurt and brushed it off, assuring everyone that you were fine? It’s happened to all of us. I’ve done it and I’m sure you have as well. It also happened to Natasha Richardson. The only difference is that what turned out to be ‘nothing wrong’ was something terrible. I highly doubt she saw something as tragic as this coming. You can’t ’see’ a brain swelling up. Plus, something like that doesn’t happen immediately. It takes time, which is why she wasn’t rushed to a hospital right after it happened. The poor woman is dead. Have some class.
==============

Yes, I feel veryvery sorry for her and her entire family.
But there’s something we can learn from this situation.

WHY WOULD THEY TAKE HER OFF LIFE SUPPORT SO FAST??? MY 90 YEAR OLD GRANDMOTHER WAS IN A COMA FOR 2 DAYS SHE CAME BACK WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???!! WHO ALLOWED THIS!? RIP NATASHA SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN ONE OF MY FAVORITE ACTRESSES :(((

This is so sad. Poor Liam as well and all the family.She was such a great actress

love her in parent traps trap. she was elegant as elizabeth james.
——-
Yes, and I enjoyed her too in “Maid in Manhattan.”

She was a heartwarming actress with such great poise and class. My prayers and condolences to her family especially her two young boys. She will be terribly missed but will be remembered for who she was.

Wow I cannot Believe this

rip natasha ,you will be missed!

There is absolutely no point in second-guessing what must have been an absolutely devastating decision for Liam Neeson to have to make. I’m sure he made it with the best medical advice available. I think he made the correct decision and I’m sure the Richardson/Redgrave family backs him up.

Aussie Girl @ 03/19/2009 at 12:49 am

#192 Don’t you think that Liam would of got the best Doctors advice, before taking his 45 year old wife off life support?? Obviously her internal injuries were severe or they would of waited!!!!

This is quite better than at 44, folks?

it makes no sense to keep her heart going if she’s brain dead.
NO SENSE, and no miracle would happen.

JJ, your title should’ve conveyed more respect. Why not just say passed away instead of Dead at 45. It’s not like she was a criminal or something.

this is really sad
i remember her from the parent trap
she was very beautiful
my prayers are with her family

this is really sad
i remember her from the parent trap
she was very beautiful

so sad May god be there confort in this difficult time.

I feel terrible about this! I just LOVED her in Parent Trap! She had a “magic” about her. I can’t believe she was here on Monday and gone by Wednesday! WOW! Life is SO short! Enjoy the moment! How terribly Sad! My heart goes out to her and her family! Poor kids….they are sooo young.

RIP Natasha she will be missed by many. It’s heartbreaking to lose someone so full of life. Condolences to her family during this time of sorrow.

In interviews Natasha always seemed so down to earth with a self-depreciating sense of humor. How devastating for this sudden, awful turn of events. My heart goes out to her family.

THIS IS SO SO SO SAD

LIFE CAN END JUST LIKE THAT

I FEEL SORRY FOR HER CHILDREN, GROWING UP WITHOUT A MOTHER!!

I LOVED HER IN PARENT TRAP!

RIP

such a beautiful lady..a tragic loss..my thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this time ..may she rest in peace

Very sad to hear the news of her passing. My heart goes out to her family.

anonymouse @ 03/19/2009 at 2:22 am

I am gutted. I love her!

My prayers and condolences for the family!

it’s a bit eerie because my colleague and i were just talking about the movie “Love Actually” where Liam’s character was mourning the sudden death of his young, vivacious wife. this was just a few days ago… and then it happened to him in real life. it’s just sad.

our prayers go out to the family.

I am really shocked by this sad news – Has this been confirmed by a family spokesperson or TMZ-type media (because 2 news reports intimated that she had been released to recover at home) so I don’t know what to think at this time.
-
It would be nice to think the latter is true but if not… Then I offer my sincere condolences her family, friends & all those grieving her loss. As my mother {may she rest in peace} used to say whenever a death occurred: “God has another angel by HIS side to watch over us all.”
-
Goodnight all.

My heart goes out to the family. What a tragic accident. It is like this isn’t real. She was a great actress.

This so frecking sad!! My thoughts and prayers are with her love ones.

RIP
deepest condolences to her family

So sad. She was lovely. RIP. Condolences to her family.

45 is far too young to leave behind a beautiful, happy family and a promising career because of a fluke accident. This is very sad. I hope everyone can say a prayer that her family can come to peace with their loss.

omg i cant belive this
this so sad

She and Liam obviously had a good thing going. So sad that she couldn’t see her boys grow up!
I wish for the best for Liam, her boys and her family and friends.
Rest in Peace Natasha

Someone asked why she was taken off life support so soon? Well, we don’t know the extent of her injuries. You hear of people in coma’s for years, even decades, then suddenly awakening. Her injuries must have been way too serious to even hope for such a miracle.

She may have had a living will as well. Something all of us should have to keep our loved ones from having to have all the burden placed upon them. If her living will specified that she be taken off life support after her condition was evaluated carefully, then her family would most likely want to grant her wishes.

God Bless her family!!! I can’t imagine how difficult their decision was, even if she had a living will.

I had the fortune of seeing her on stage once. Goodbye Natasha!

RIP Natasha we will always love you ;(;(;

R.I.P.

deb kollar @ 03/19/2009 at 5:07 pm

With an epidural hematoma and brain herniation, pulling a pt off life support is the only thing to do…Waiting won’t help.. It’s not a condiotn that will get any better with time

It was very sad to hear the news.Natasha was a very good actress
and a very good woman. God Bless her family and wherever she is
I am sure she will see over her children.

I don]t believe this! I am shocked, the poor thing she was so elegant! I loved her as elizabeth james in PT .. |cry|
may she rest in piece

Natasha and her family have been on my mind ever since I heard of her accident. My heart breaks for her that her life is cut short, her children and husband will endure the sorrow of losing her, and living without their wonderful mother, and his strikingly beautiful wife.
I live in Ontario and when I think of this tragedy, tears come immediately to my eyes. I will always remember her grace and her womanly beauty. I ask God to help her family and give them the strength they will need to endure their loss.

We lost a 10 yr old granddaughter three years ago and our loss has changed us forever.
