REEVE REMEMBERED: About 100 family members and friends paid their respects to Christopher Reeve on Tuesday in a private ceremony at the family's Pound Ridge, N.Y., home. Plans for a larger-scale public memorial are due to be announced next week. "It is clear that Christopher Reeve has touched the hearts of millions of people around the world, and that is the legacy he leaves behind," family spokesman Wesley Combs told Reuters. The actor-activist, 52, an ardent campaigner for stem-cell research after he was paralyzed in a near-fatal 1995 riding accident, died on Sunday in Northern Westchester Hospital after suffering a heart attack at his home on Saturday during treatment for an infected bedsore wound.

Dana Reeve had never spent such a long time – two months – away from her husband, actor Christopher Reeve, but this was the final weekend of her performing in Brooklyn Boy, a new play in Costa Mesa, Calif. The curtain had fallen on the Saturday evening performance, and soon she’d be returning to their home north of New York City. As the rest of the cast assembled at a little restaurant near the theater, Dana, 43, remained in her dressing room, answering an emergency call from one of the nurses who provided constant care for her husband, a quadriplegic since a horseriding accident in 1995.
