Actress Michelle Williams' father LARRY has used poetry to describe his feelings following the death of his daughter's tragic ex Heath Ledger. Williams rushed to New York from Sweden, where she's shooting a new movie, upon hearing the news of her former fiance's death on Tuesday (22Jan08). The actress is said to be "devastated" and now her father is speaking out about the man who was his granddaughter Matilda's daddy. In a statement released on Wednesday (23Jan08), Larry Williams said, "I think Tennyson got it right in the poem when he described someone as having died at a young age but burning the candles at both ends, and oh what a beautiful flame he made, that was Heath. "What a beautiful flame he made and a great talent. My heart goes out to everyone in his family and my family. The saddest thing is his daughter whom he just loved dearly."
