Heath Ledger 1979-2008

Heath Ledger passed away yesterday.

I know that death is a reality of life and a celebrity dying shouldn't elicit more response than anyone else but this news saddened me deeply. Ledger was only 28 and was a father. I have an immense respect for his acting, his talent was great and from all accounts of those who've crossed paths with him, he was also a good person.

Moviegoers will surely miss Ledger but not as much as his family and friends. My sympathies go out to all who knew him.

Here's another short tribute with some more information if you're interested.
