Sydney, Feb 9 (ANI): Heath Ledger’s family will be holding a private funeral for the late actor on Feb 9, with only 10 family members attending the service.

“It’s a pretty sad time and we are finding it difficult to cope by ourselves,” News.com.au was quoted Kim, as saying.
“The funeral will be very, very private and there will only be 10 people there, immediate family and nobody else,” he added.
While addressing the media, Kim said that they were allowed to take photos of people arriving for the funeral at the exclusive girls’ school but also asked them to respect the family’s privacy.
However, the time of the funeral was not revealed.
