Patrick Swayze released a statement Monday paying tribute to his Waking Up in Reno costar Natasha Richardson, who was laid to rest over the weekend:

“It is such a great loss to this community to lose an actress and person such as Natasha. Gifts like her don’t come along very often. It’s a rare thing in this industry to have someone with so much talent, beauty, and dedication and yet is imbued with such humility. I know for me and many other people, the world will be a different place without her.

“My heart goes out to Liam [Neeson, her husband] and his two boys, but I’m sure that Natasha’s light is shining down on them.”
