Today I am honoring one of my favorite actors, Heath Ledger, who died two years ago today. His untimely death brought to a close the life of an actor who was just realizing his great potential and a father who adored his little girl. I myself have a constant reminder of Heath in my life. In 2000, Heath starred in The Patriot with Mel Gibson. This was one of his earlier films and I was already a fan, but I recognized that he possessed real talent. His character in the film was named Gabriel and this was the early inspiration for the name I chose for my eldest son. His name is Gabriel.
I hope that wherever he is now that he is at peace. I remember you today, Heath. You are missed.
