"I didn't know he was an actor," said Camile Angelo, the host at the Grotta Azzurra Ristorante at Mulberry and Broome Sts., where Ledger often ate breakfast. "He was always the first customer. He was always here alone."

"I told him to stop text messaging because his steak and eggs were getting cold,"  Angelo said. "He smiled."

This photo journey makes me cry. Very touching with your striped scarves and the roses. Thank you both for going and for posting it us. I'm so glad you did this for Heath's 29th birthday. Beautiful.

Oh my, Meryl and John, how I love you guys!

Thank you for letting us join you in this "pilgrimage" - it's wonderful seeing the place, down to the egg and steak - and you both looking so good in your striped scarves.  :) And the flower tribute...  :'(

It's all perfect and I am deeply moved and very grateful.

Thank you!  :-* :-*

Meryl I love you. John I love you.

Will be in Philly the week of the 21st and NYC the weekend either before or after. You'll have to take me there.

((((((((Shasta, Paul, Mika and Roux and all Brokies Dear))))))))

It was so worth getting up at the crack of dawn for!  Thanks, dear John, for the idea and the companionship.  It meant so much, especially since we weren't able to get our flowers delivered to the cemetery in Perth.  This was really much sweeter and more personal.  We walked in Heath's footsteps, breathed the air he breathed, laid eyes on the sights that he saw and remembered him with love.  :-*  :-*  :-*

This all looks so wonderful.  The next time I'm in NYC I definitely want to go to that restaurant.

Thanks so much for these lovely reports.

You guys are amazing!! What a wonderful tribute, love the scarfs and the roses! I don't think Heath could have wished for better fans.

Thank you so much!  :-*
