Natasha Richardson Laid to Rest

Family members and friends gathered in Upstate New York on Sunday to say their final goodbye to actress Natasha Richardson, as she was laid to rest.

The actress' mahogany casket, marked on its side with an Irish symbol representing friendship, love and loyalty, left Manhattan, New York at approximately 9:30am local time on Saturday, after a one-day wake.

A private service was held Sunday afternoon at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Millbrook, New York, near the home where Natasha and husband Liam Neeson exchanged vows in 1994 and raised their two children.

Her husband, two boys Michael, 13, and Daniel, 12 and her mother Vanessa Redgrave all showed up together followed by her aunt Lynn Redgrave and sister Joely Richardson.

Natasha was laid to rest at a nearby cemetery where her grandmother, Rachel Kempson Redgrave, was buried in 2003. She was 45.

Our hearts go to the family during this difficult time. RIP Natasha, you'll be missed.
