Natasha Richardson Is Laid To Rest

Liam Neeson and his family arrives for the funeral of actress Natasha Richardson at St. Peter’s Lithgow Episcopal Church on Sunday (March 22) in Millbrook, New York.

The family was joined by approximately 40 people for the service at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on Sunday. Neeson, 56, carried the coffin with five other pallbearers into St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in the Hudson Valley town of Millbrook, where the couple was married 15 years ago.

Richardson‘s mother, actress Vanessa Redgrave, her two sons, Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12, and sister Joely Richardson all mourned together.

Richardson died of a blunt impact to the head at the age 45 after a ski accident in Canada last week.

wow, this is so sad. liam is just such a nice person, he waves to the phographers ..he doesnt seem angry because they are there.. he seems glad,that so many people seem to care for his beloved wife

God be with them indeed. My heart goes out to everyone who knew her especially her little boys, her husband, mom and her sister. The concept of death still baffles me–and I think that it’s so shocking how a little over a week ago she was alive and perfectly well. Hopefully,someday they can all get a place where their happy memories with her overshadow the way she died. Those pictures make me so sad.

It’s another reminder about the precious gift of life.

I keep all of you in my prayers.

I thank God for my loved ones and for my own life…

So sad :( I’m happy that the family has come together. It’s such a tragic situation for them all and I wish them the best and support them unconditionally.

RIP, Natasha.

I knew there would be coverage of the burial but seriously a photo op is taking it a bit too far… Just a bit…

Liam is NOT waving at the intrusive paps. He is waving at the small areas townspeople who arrived and silently stood by the side of the service.

this whole accident made me look back on my own close head tramatic brain injury, how I could of dies and missed so much. The rehab was long and tiresom but I am here 16 years later with a wonderful husband and family. No one understands how easily a simple mishap can effect your life forever. I had to learn to read and write but I am here and natasha isn’t.
I cannot lebieve the person who wrote they look so happy, they are coping and they are doing all they can to be strong as a family for hte children.

may god bless and keep her

why the hell are the kids smiling?

I dont think that anybody has the right to ask what they are doing, how they are feeling, what emotions are they feeling and showing. Such a sudden and tragical loss has million variations of reaction.
I wish the whole family all the best.

When my friend was killed in a car accident at the age of 22, I remember her mum was so emotionally distraut that she would just suddenly laugh out loud during the wake. She was remembering all the funny things her daughter used to say/do. She was blocking out the reality of the funeral. People deal with traumatic losses differently. You can’t judge from photos.

Americans are so strange. Here in Europe we use to cry at funerals! But in these pictures, they look like a really happy family, they are all laughing, smiling and posing to paparazzi…. I really don’t understand that….

Btw, RIP Natasha :-(

am i the only one who thinks it’s INCREDIBLY disrespectful for paparazzi to be at this man’s wife’s funeral?

god, what has our society come to.

why the fck are they posing for pictures and smiling during her FUNERAL. WTF disrespect
_____________________________________________________
YOU are the one who has no respect. first of all you have no idea what was happening at the time those pictures were taken. i, however, do. we,. people in the area, stood outside waiting to show our respect to the family. in otherwards, i was there you were not. so please do not make comments about something you know nothing about.

first of all they were not posing for pictures. it was simply a family gathering taking place outside; after the service. it’s done all the time; to meet with friends etc who have come. and in case you’re interested, liam neeson did wave to us. he didn’t have to but he did.

WELL they are not Americans so I dont understand your point as to that Americans laugh at funerals and Europeans cry….
They deserve a laugh whatever prompted it…

I think the sister is taking it really bad..she can barely walk alone or raise her head…..

these pictures are a disgrace..is nothing sacred?

uh sorry, I made a mistake….you’re right, they are europeans too. Anyway, watching them smiling and so friendly to paparazzi (who should leave them alone) is really strange to me!

Why are some to quick to judge?

Maybe someone yelled out: “God rest her soul…” or “We loved your mom…”

I mean, come on, folks…give them a break, they are human who have lost their mom, their sister, their wife…

Have YOU any feelings? Please remember to BE the change you wish to see in the world and hold yourself to a better standard.

Try some empathy.

It is hard to read so many “jumping” to conclusions from a picture. A picture!

Oh and “Julie,” at least you acknowledged your mistake but saying that Americans are strange because we laugh at funerals is a bit condescending. Please don’t generalize.

Even if it were true, that ALL Americans do this, who cares? Don’t judge.

And lastly, sometimes it is nice to laugh and celebrate life. I know that I would like people at my funeral to remember the good times with me and smile and…wait for it…laugh. GASP…how dare they?!?!

(Feel free to laugh at this posting.)

First off I think its sick that people would take pictures of this!

& For the people who are criticizing them for smiling, maybe they have decided to celebrate her life rather that be sad for her loss, people deal with death in many ways…. besides do you know how they feel or know them? NO.. so stop being so harsh!
My best to the family!
