REST IN PEACE NATASHA RICHARDSON 11 May 1963 – 18 March 2009

God bless the family and and friends of such a talented lady. The world is mourning with you.

Remember
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land:
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Christina Rossetti
1830-1894

Wasn't this so sad!

I'm such a huge fan of the Redgrave family. She was so lovely and talented. I think she did an outstanding job in "The White Countess".

So very, very sad.

Very sad. And like Princess Diana, she leaves behind two young boys who will now grow up motherless. So sad and so senseless.

Truly heartbreaking. She has been in my thoughts all week. I can only imagine the pain her husband and family are enduring. My prayers are with them all. She seemed such a lovely lady.
