Stars Remember Spalding Gray

Tragic actor SPALDING GRAY has been remembered by friends and family at an emotional memorial service on Saturday (15MAY04).

The KATE AND LEOPOLD star committed suicide by jumping off the Staten Island, New York ferry - his body was found washed up on the Brooklyn side of the East River on 7 March (04).

Those who attended the service included celebrity pals CHRISTIE BRINKLEY and ROY SCHNEIDER, who joined approximately 500 mourners.

Gray's devastated brother CHANNING told the congregation he remembered the "vital, vibrant Spalding who was a complete outdoors man, loved late night swims, riding his bike all over Sag Harbour and navigating his boat.

"Most of all, he was a gifted teller of tales.

"There was no frills about his work. It was raw, unvarnished collections of his views of life."
