Natasha Richardson Remembered at Wake In NYC

Natasha Richardson’s wake was held in New York City today at the American Irish Historical Society, and several celebrities were in attendance to remember the actress who touched their lives.

Among those attending were Uma Thurman, Diane Sawyer and Richardson's mother, Vanessa Redgrave, and sister, Joely Richardson.

Liam Neeson was seen arriving in a black Mercedes to the funeral home in a black suit and dark sunglasses and walked quickly inside with one of his sons. Vanessa Redgrave showed up shortly afterwards.

In a statement Friday, Sarah Jessica Parker, quoting the song lyrics "Every time we say goodbye, I die a little/Every time we say goodbye, I wonder why a little," said: "It's as if Cole Porter were writing the sentiments of everyone who was privileged enough to know, work with or love the late great Ms. Richardson."

Liam and Natasha would have celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary on July 3.
