Skye Mccole Bartusiak - Loved Ones Remember Skye Mccole Bartusiak At Memorial

Late actress Skye Mccole Bartusiak was honoured at a memorial service in her hometown of Houston, Texas on Friday (25Jul14).

The actress, who played Mel Gibson's daughter in The Patriot, died at her parents' Houston home on 19 July (14), aged 21.

Family and friends gathered at the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church to pay tribute to Bartusiak's short life, with several hundred mourners in attendance, according to E! News.

Her brother, Stephen, spoke about his beloved sister, and said, "If you want to remember her, remember that smile and remember that laugh. So remember my sister for being that free-spirited, happy-go-lucky rasta (Rastafarian) girl.

"If you want to know what makes Skye happy, go out and plant a tree. Make it a place you can go to when you want to reflect. Make it a place where you write or where you think. But make it your safe place, because that's what Skye would want."

Bartusiak's father, Don, added, "She lit up the room. Skye's ability to engage people emotionally was exceptional."

Although investigators have yet to officially determine the cause of her death, the actress' mother revealed she had been suffering from epileptic seizures.
