Natasha Richardson died Wednesday at the age of 45.
She was the perfect example of what a Hollywood woman should be. She was to everyone a golden girl. Born to Vanessa Redgrave and the late Tony Richardson, Ms. Richardson was brought to the spotlight at the tender age of four. Over the years, Richardson blossomed into a star.
In 1994 during one of her films, she met the love of her life, Liam Neeson. They married and had two sons. The men in Ms. Richardson’s life held her hand and kissed her goodbye before she left the earth.
Natasha touched so many around her in her short life. What I’ll miss about Ms. Richardson is her unselfishness and that she was a caring wife and loving mother. Richardson didn’t care about herself, but cared for others around her.
I’m deeply heartbroken that I never got to meet Natasha, but she left behind many lessons. One lesson is that we are on this earth for a short spell. The second lesson: Always check with your doctor as soon as possable . It can save your life. Sadly, Natasha learned that mistake the hard way. And she paid for it with her life.
We’ll miss you, Natasha. Until then, goodbye.
Natasha Richardson (1963–2009)
