A large memorial service drew over 600 people at Penrhos College in Perth, Australia, to mourn Heath Ledger on Saturday. Attendees were given a program that read, "This room is filled with the love we all felt for a great friend who will be missed by all of us. We want to thank those of you who took care of him and participated in his beautiful life." His parents Kim Ledger, Sally Ledger Bell, sister Kate Ledger and former co-star Cate Blanchett all gave eulogies. Heath's ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams attended the service without their daughter, Matilda, though the 2-year-old was featured in a video montage set to Ben Harper's "Happily Everafter in Your Eyes," which was reportedly written for her. The service was followed by a private funeral at Fremantle Cemetery with only 10 people, including Heath's family and Michelle. At the wake following the funeral, about 50 people plunged into the ocean, including Michelle and Heath's sister, Kate. Everyone watched the sunset together, with two mourners saying, "The sun goes down on our love. But it will never go down on Heathy."
