Vigil for Heath - light a candle
« on: Jan 23, 2008, 01:15 AM »
Who would have thought that January 22, 2008 would be a day of grief for us?  :ghug:

"There's no way to make sense of this. No way to end an appreciation like this on an uplift when the news is so sad. If there's something positive to be said, it's that the best work Ledger left behind will last forever, and the rest is already forgotten."

This thread is our cyber vigil in honoring Heath for what he has given us.

To light a candle, choose one of the candles. Copy the code and just post.

If you'd like share your thoughts, please post in this thread

For you, Heath.  You gave us so much.
He pressed his face into the fabric and breathed in slowly through his mouth and nose, hoping for the faintest smoke and mountain sage and salty sweet stink of Jack but there was no real scent, only the memory of it, the imagined power of Brokeback Mountain of which nothing was left but what he held in his hands. Make the pledge! Go Back to Brokeback whenever, however you can. Join the BTB Project.

Thank you, Heath, for sharing so much of yourself with us. It was an honor simply to watch you, and learn some of the lessons your craft was able to teach us. You will forever be remembered with love. May God bless and keep you.
For a moment in our lives. Forever in our hearts.

Rest in peace, Heath.

Gone but never forgotten.
He will be eternally missed, but he will never be forgotten

Christopher Nolan, accepting the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe on Heath's behalf.

He was, as an actor and a professional and a human being, one of a kind

Charles Roven, accepting Heath's BAFTA.

This award tonight would have humbly validated Heath's quiet determination to be truly accepted by you all here — his peers within an industry he so loved.

Kim Ledger, accepting Heath's Oscar.

Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

Heath baby, you will never be forgotten! I'm still in utter denial. Rest in peace sweet cowboy, rest in peace!
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
All is well.
