Liam Neeson bids final farewell to Natasha
Monday 23 March 2009
Friends and family of Natasha Richardson yesterday bid a final farewell to the actress at a private funeral service in upstate New York.
The ceremony took place at St Peter’s Episcopal Church in Millbrook, near where Richardson shared a home with Ballymena-born husband Liam Neeson and their two children.
Neeson, 56, was among the pallbearers for his wife’s coffin as it was taken inside the building.
He arrived at the tiny, white clapboard church with his sons Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12, and mother-in-law, Vanessa Redgrave.
Others at the funeral included actor Ralph Fiennes. Burial was due to take place in a nearby cemetery.
Richardson died in a hospital in New York on Wednesday after suffering a fatal head injury during a skiing accident in Quebec, Canada.
The 45-year-old fell during a lesson at the luxury resort of Mont Tremblant.
She initially showed no sign of injury but about an hour later was taken to a nearby hospital after feeling unwell. It was later confirmed her injuries were critical.
Neeson flew from the set of his new film to be with his wife as soon as he heard of the accident.
He accompanied her as she was flown from Canada to a hospital in New York on Tuesday where she later died.
