Just re-watched the you tube montage of Heath in Brokeback scenes, and think to myself, what other memorable films would he have acted in over the past 5 years.......would we be waiting eagerly now if he had been nominated for another Academy Award.....how many photos of him and Matilda would have been posted on his thread here....or photos of him wearing those striped socks again to some gala event......

Its so sad that we didn't see him get that little bit older, more mature, more settled.

I miss him, and what could have been........what would have been.....


I'm right with you on this one,what may have been.

What a shining star he would have been, always and forever.  Impossible to believe that 5 years have passed...

Diana posted this on facebook yesterday:

In honor of Heath Ledger's birthday (April 4), I want to post a tribute article about him which I wrote for the Spirit Awards ceremony in 2008:

"Heath was an old soul in a young man's form, animated, kinetic, masculine, capable in all things, yet uncommonly sensitive. A loyal friend and an adoring father, his least favorite subject was himself. He was always disheveled, unconcerned with his appearance, because, like my writing partner Larry McMurtry, Heath lived in his head. He was a pure actor, much like Larry is a pure writer, in that he believed his work should speak for itself. In all his endeavors, Heath was a risk taker with an insatiable curiosity: he loved surfing and skateboarding; he was an accomplished chess player; he was an imaginative photographer with an acute eye. Heath could be impatient and demanding, fidgety and exasperating, but then turn right around and be generous, endearing, painfully shy, humble. His evolution from teen heartthrob to his haunting portrayal of an emotionally straitjacketed rural gay in BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN--a performance whose tragic force will continue to touch audiences for years to comeógave us a mere taste of his potential as an actor. The great 20th century American poet Walt Whitman said it best: "Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes."
 --Diana Ossana

 Heath was like one of my children. I still miss him terribly.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
