Actress Natasha Richardson Dies At 45

A spokesman for the family of Natasha Richardson says the actress has died.

Richardson, a gifted and precocious heiress to acting royalty whose career highlights included the film "Patty Hearst" and a Tony-winning performance in a stage revival of "Cabaret," died after suffering an apparent head injury from a skiing accident. She was 45

Alan Nierob of Rogers & Cowan said in a statement Wednesday
night: "Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked
and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They
are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of
everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

    This is terrible and a indication of failed Socialized Medicine. Canada had no way of treating her when she took a turn for the worse. They had to fly her to New York in hopes of helping her. This needs to be remembered when the Obama administration pushes "Universal Health Care". This is the result.

    May GOD bless this family in their time of sorrow,and may he give them peace and comfort. Death is something we must ALL face one day, no matter how much money we have, what positions we hold, or who we "know"; we must all answer that call. Preparing for eternal life(knowing GOD) is the best investment anyone can EVER make !!!!

    Why does everyone make it about them, and when it is about someone losing a life. Her sons lost a mother, her husband lost a wife, and we lost a wonderful actress (one of few left). I do pray for the family that will be going one of the hardest that ones has to do. But remember the wonderful moments, and talk about her. Don't think she is far apart, For every time you think of her, she will right here, in your heart.

    As usual, the WITN site which is supposed to be used for the public to post thier comments on a story turns into a place to bash each other. This is so pathetic. Just leave each other alone and comment on the STORY. My thoughts and prayers are with this family. This is so tragic for her children.

    You can knock off the preaching. I'm a realist and these things happen. It is tragic, but life will go on. Those of you who immerse yourselves in a book of fairy tales are the ones who need help.

    I havent seen anyone preaching up here yet. NO ONE told this "anonymous" to worship God. THey simply stated their OWN feelings about it.

    Leave anonymous alone. This person has the right to his/her opinions and beliefs. Stop preaching.

    Anonymous, sounds like you need God. Yes, things do happen, if something should happen to you, would you not want people to pray for strength for your family?

    Anonymous doesnt have anyone that loves him/her. It must suck to be bitter. GOD is with this family. You are all in our prayers.
