I had to come in here and read these wonderful posts because I was upset today. I made the mistake of re-reading the events of that Jan 22 and for the life of me I cannot understand why that massage woman waited so long to call 911 when she found Heath in bed unresponsive. Why did she call that Mary-Kate who was clear across the US in California? How could she help the situation? I got very disturbed and angry reading this again. I know we can "What If(?)" forever but what if things had been different that day and someone had made that 911 call immediately, would it had made a difference? I miss him so much and can just imagine how much his family and friends do. Reading your posts gives me some peace and hope that he is happy and still enjoying a life somewhere else.

I understand how you feel, rimasworld... I try to avoid articles or videos about the circumstances of his death myself because I know how much it would upset me. If it makes any difference, I don't think that phone call changed anything either way, I think he was already dead when she found him... :_( but yes, I do ask myself sometimes "what if" - what if someone had found him earlier, when it was still possible to save him. It's so painful to think about it. He just wanted to sleep... and he couldn't know that he would never wake up. :_( :_(
The truth is... sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.

This is so beautiful and heartbreaking. I looked up who Grace is. I never knew that Heath helped her with her career. Why oh why did he have to leave us so soon?  :_(

Keren, that's just beautiful.  :_( I can go long stretches where I don't even think about him that much and then...there he'll be. Just the other day I was wandering through the aisle of the video store and there he was twice over - the boxes for Candy and Casanova staring me in the face. And as I always do, I had to stop for a moment and just look at him. There are still songs that bring him instantly to mind as well. This one I imagine will be an eternal tear jerker.

You will never be forgotten if you touch people and in doing so leave a little piece of yourself behind for them.

He did that for us and for that we can always be grateful.   :ghug:

Yes, the lyrics are heartbreaking. Grace was a friend of Heath`s little sister Ashleigh, and that`s how he got to hear her music. He loved it so much that he actually flew her over to the U.S. to work with her on her album. He also directed a video for her - a cover of David Bowie`s Quicksand. I`m still waiting to see it.

You will never be forgotten if you touch people and in doing so leave a little piece of yourself behind for them.


So true. And it`s amazing how many lives he`d touched.

Nothing brings Heath to mind like standing next to the place where he stood, sitting at the spot where he sat, watching him/Ennis looking excitedly on the stair's landing, bouncing two three steps at a time to get at Jack. It was always a tearful moment on the pilgrimage, especially next to the stairs, next to the post office (seeing not just one scene, but two, of his mailing "You bet" and whistling away, then the heartbreaking returned postcard marked Deceased), at the table, number 25, in the diner, sitting on the little grassy slop, waiting on Jack. Strangely enough, lying on the rocks, next to the sweet life river, it was merely just like any other spot, or the Basque bridge was the same. I guess some parts of the movie has more resonance within than others.
Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

Yeah, sometimes it was hard talking with you, because I always felt like on the verge of tears. I guess that was just as well, because I was told recently that I talked too much.  :c)

((((Barb))))  Hi sweetie!!  It has been so, so long.....I have missed camp so much.  I've been in touch with the Facebook Brokies, but Brokies like you that I'm not connected to on FB, I have just missed loads.   :ghug: :ghug: :ghug: :ghug:

I know just what you mean.  I can go stretches without thinking about him, but then....there he is.  A song, a word, anything can remind me.  Even a new guy I've been seeing reminds me sooo much of Heath...there is quite the resemblance, and he has exactly the same eyes, I kid you not.  So lately I've been thinking of Heath more than usual.  I miss him.....

 :ghug: :ghug: :ghug: :ghug:  Hope you're well, Barb, and Brokies!!  xoxo

Here are a few tributes and their stories that were posted on Findingbrokeback. Very moving. :_(

http://www.findingbrokeback.com/Memoriam/HeathTribute.html


A cowboy hat worn by Brokeback Mountain star Heath Ledger sits on Table 25 in the Java Shop alongside roses sent by an admirer following the actor’s death.

THE MACLEOD GAZETTE
Wednesday, February 6, 2008

Tribute to dead actor sent to Java Shop
FRANK MCTIGHE
MACLEOD GAZETTE EDITOR

The death of a Hollywood star touched Fort Macleod.

A rose was delivered every day for four days last week to Table 25 in the Java Shop, made famous by Heath Ledger in a scene from Brokeback Mountain.

“They have been delivering one flower a day,” Java Shop owner Vasant Patel said Friday.

Ledger, who starred as Ennis del Mar in the award-winning 2005 movie, died January 22 in an apartment he rented in the SoHo district of New York City.

Patel, who placed the cowboy hat Ledger wore in Brokeback Mountain on the table beside the roses, said Table 25 has been popular since the movie debuted.

“People want to see where he sat down and ate,” Patel said.

The groundbreaking movie about two gay cowboys gained fans world-wide, and they made pilgrimages to Fort Macleod to see first-hand scenes where the movie was shot.

“I had a lady from Japan,” Patel marveled.

Brokeback Mountain fans would often come to the Java Shop, determine which table was the one at which Ledger sat, and then order apple pie just as Ennis del Mar ate in the scene. “They come from all over the world,” Patel said.

People often made a day trip from Calgary to visit Table 25, while others came from as far away as Germany and Switzerland.

The scene filmed in the Java Shop was a pivotal one in which Ennis del Mar was confronted by his girlfriend Cassie and officially ended his relationship with her. People who sought out the real-life places in which the movie was shot found the Java Shop welcoming.

“You could go in and become a part of it for a short time,” said Lauren Gurney, who has done research for the Internet site www.findingbrokeback.com.

“There was life there, life that was welcoming to fans of the movie. You could make a connection if you wanted to, or just sit there with your apple pie and coffee and replay the scene in your mind.”

In an e-mail interview, Gurney said it’s not surprising the movie is so popular. “It’s a tragic love story, first and foremost, and it resonates with people for different reasons, depending upon what baggage they bring to the theater with them,” Gurney explained.

“For many, this was their life playing out on the screen, and not only for homosexuals. Opportunities missed or not taken, feelings denied or covered up—these themes apply to everybody. For others it was about a certain part of their being that was lost somewhere while growing up, and they wanted to regain that. Whatever the personal reason, it packed a huge emotional punch for a great number of people.”

The daily roses were delivered to the Java Shop from Village Greenery and Gifts in Fort Macleod.

The actor’s death gained international attention on Internet discussion boards on Web sites dedicated to Brokeback Mountain, including www.davecullen.com/brokeback and www.bettermost.net.
 




http://www.findingbrokeback.com/Memoriam/Memoriam_Frame.html


As “Mouk” wrote:

“Here are a few words to explain the flowers in the snow [at Campsite #2]…

After a deeply moving visit of the filming sites in July with the Bettermost “Pilgrimage” [www.bettermost.net] I had planned to return to Alberta for my second BBM anniversary, on January 26th, to be “closer to Ennis and Jack” who have done so much for me and many of us. Little did I know that it would be in tears that I would walk down Ennis’s fight hill on my way to the Camp where they were once “flying in the euphoric, bitter air, ... suspended above ordinary affairs ...” [1]

It was a glorious afternoon, the snow was glittering, so pure, covering the bridge, the spot where they had embraced, the fire area, the mountains all around. The river was full of life, flowing fast between its icy banks. Close to where Ennis had set up the tent, I found a spot sheltered from the wind and from non Brokie eyes. There I put spring flowers for hope and also live flowers because Heath will live within us as long as we are alive. We owe him so much! The colours were among those he seemed to like: orange, yellow and red—those of a sunset. Or a sunrise. The bridge was visible in the distance as Heath would have seen it from the tent, the only sounds were the wind, the river and chirping birds. There was such peace and beauty, and something so special in the air and in the light, I would not be surprised if Heath was hovering, smiling over what he had done for us.

I spent a long time there with him, remembering what he had given us; remembering also the happy times spent in this Camp with fellow Brokies in the summer. And thanking Heath on behalf of all of us. As I was lost in my thoughts I suddenly had the eerie feeling that something was happening: the live flowers were slowly turning away from the light, towards the cut tulips and bending over them—the living taking care of the one whose life was cut too short.”




Heath Ledger Remembered

http://www.findingbrokeback.com/Memoriam/Memoriam_Frame.html

During the course of our travels within southern Alberta, and our interviews with those who made Brokeback Mountain, we were told many things about Heath Ledger by those who had the rare privilege of working with him. He is fondly remembered by them as a deeply committed artist, a generous friend, and one who dearly loved this life. We are honored to share a few of their recollections here.

***
Ang Lee insisted on perfect lighting for the Basque Bridge scene. In the hours that the cast and crew waited patiently for the sun and clouds to cooperate, Ledger took off his shirt and hung from the underside of the bridge, clowning around, greatly amusing the crew.

Ken Zilka (Roughneck #1) said that Ledger was so determined to make the Thanksgiving street fight realistic that he accidentally broke Zilka’s nose. And, of course, Ledger insisted on doing his own stunt work for the cliff jump.

David Trimble (the Basque) remembers the experience of working with Ledger and Gyllenhaal as “amazing.”

“Massive auras, massive auras in terms of, well, they’re brilliant, they’re gorgeous. Let’s just call it for what it is—they’re gorgeous human beings. And that’s part of what the aura is. And so, you’ve got to work with them, so you’ve got to get inside that aura. And once you get in you realize that they’re just a couple of kids, having a good time, enjoying what they’re doing, and fun. Just as interested in me as I was in them. Had some great conversations, had some great laughs, and yeah, they’re just a couple of really good looking young guys. Super fun to work with and super relaxed.”
 
First Assistant Director Pierre Tremblay said Ledger accidentally landed on top of Michelle Williams while they were shooting the toboggan scene, injuring her knee. Tremblay recalls that Heath insisted on riding with her in the ambulance to the hospital in Canmore, presumably the first spark of their romance.

The proprietor of the Red Coat Motel in Fort Macleod, where a photo portrait of Ledger is proudly displayed, said Heath and Michelle shared a room while they stayed there, joking, “If only I’d saved the sheets!” To deter paparazzi, Ledger was registered as “Keith Fletcher.”

The bartender at the Blue Bar in Carseland (Signal Bar) said Ledger was “a bit of a [pain]” because he would not talk to anyone while he was preparing himself emotionally for that scene, so determined was he not to be “the one who fucked [the movie] up.”

The owner of the Lonesome Ranch said Ledger was very focused during his time there, working extensively with his diction coach, intently trying to sound “downtown Wyoming.”

Roberta Maxwell said that when her lines were to be shot, Ledger volunteered to be there, instead of a double. He was still in tears from doing his scene upstairs. She was touched by his gesture, an unusual professional courtesy, and has said it contributed greatly to her own performance.

In June 2004, while the production was based in Fort Macleod, Ledger visited the seedy Queen’s Hotel bar (Cassie’s Bar) and stayed up late, drinking with the locals. Some of the guys we met there remembered that. Unfamiliar with the Brokeback story line at the time, they jokingly offered to double for Heath in his movie’s sex scenes.

Larry Reese (Jolly Minister) mentioned to Heath that his daughter was a big fan of his earlier films. Without prompting, Ledger later presented Reese with a hand-written message of thanks to Reese’s daughter, an extraordinary kindness on the part of a celebrity who was mercilessly hounded for his autograph.

The owner of the Twist Ranch said that Heath waived union / guild work rules to allow the filmmakers to shoot late one day when they were trying to complete the critical scenes at that location.

During the shooting of the difficult fireworks scene in Fort Macleod, it rained very hard. The babies (twins were rotated to comply with child welfare regulations) were crying a lot. “Ledger held them like a father and calmed them down. He loved kids,” said a crowd extra who was positioned nearby.

A coincidence, Ledger’s sister gave birth to a set of twins while he was making the film. He is remembered as having been very frustrated that he could not be with her in Australia at the time.

Hannah Stewart (Alma, Jr., age 3) needed to have her hair darkened for the role. When she looked in the mirror after the dye job, she started to cry. Her father remembered that it was Heath who stepped up to calm her down and stop her from crying, saying that Ledger had a way with children that was “magical.”

And, as has been reported, it was Ledger’s inspiration to reverse the shirts for the final scene, never imagining that it was to become his own, enduring valediction. Yes, he really did get it, didn’t he?

A dedicated, loving, and vibrant presence has now passed on, but his legacy will endure, not simply in the form of a monumental work of art, but in the hearts and minds of those whose lives have been forever changed by it.

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?”

Opportunities missed or not taken, feelings denied or covered up—these themes apply to everybody...That's very right,one of the main reasons for the movie's success; and the way Heath went into Ennis's skin,too.Isn't strange that people from around the world come and visit the place he was sitting...Beautiful detail the one of the hat and the flowers; it has almost made me cry... :_(

yes, quite strange feeling... because 10 min before i was just happy jumping around in that wonderful town.. and then, there, i had the strangest feelings...   :_(

I could not stay in front of the building I was so shaken, I had to cross the road, and I spent most of the time turning my back to the building I was so uncomfortable :(

I watch TIODP again last night. It's sad to think that this was his final work but I am also thankful we have these few but very good movies to view time and again. It's mixed emotions of loss & happiness when I see his films.

That's a very good way to put it, rimasworld.

This is important so please read!!!!

Everybody, please sign this petition and say NO to a movie about Heath's death. This kind of movie only invites rumors and speculations, and we've had enough of those in the days after his passing. It will be hurtful to his family, his friends, and anybody who loves him. Michelle Williams is also strongly against this movie since she fears it would only hurt Matilda. One day a movie celebrating Heath's life and achievements will be appropriate, but certainly not a movie that focuses on the circumstances around his death. Please sign this petition and help by spreading the word - forward it to your friends, post it on your facebook page, whatever. Thank you!

http://www.webpetitions.com/signatures/say-no-to-a-movie-about-heath-ledger-s-death/8604

This is the content of the petition:

"Recently we found out there are plans to make a movie about Heath Ledger's death..
We, the fans, are not happy to hear about these plans. This movie will be based on speculations only, it will hurt Heath's daughter Matilda, his parents, his sisters and other family. It will also hurt his true fans. Therefor, this movie will not at all contribute to anything good.
We ask everybody to sign the petition and spread it around the world. These plans for this awful movie must be stopped!

We will try to approach as many movie companies and producers and other people who matter in this industry as we can. But we need your help also. Spread this link, make everybody sign the petition.
Heath and his loved ones do not deserve to be hurt this much more."
The truth is... sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.

Thank you for sharing this, Keren.


I respect the fact that other people might feel differently on this but I will be signing because I think that respecting his privacy is the least we can do. I doubt very much any production would be accurate and even if it were, I don't think it's any of our business. How many of us would want the details of our private lives spread out for the world to see after we died? I'm going to choose to show him the same respect in death that I gave him while he was alive. And for me, that means to support the protection of his privacy and that of his daughter.
For a moment in our lives. Forever in our hearts.

I feel despondent, stuck in limbo between past and future where what I have is what I’ve lost. Bobby & Dave, no word is strong enough to say how much I miss you.
