After losing her daughter, Natasha Richardson, last year and her brother and sister in the past two months, Vanessa Redgrave says she has drawn strength from memories – and her rekindled romance with actor Franco Nero, four decades after they first fell in love – to weather the grief of the past year.

"I treasure every single moment I spent with them," the Oscar winner, 73, tells PEOPLE in its upcoming issue, referring to Natasha, who died at 45 in a skiing accident in March 2009; brother Corin, who lost his battle with prostate cancer last month at 70, and sister Lynn, who passed away this month at 67 after a battle with breast cancer.

"I miss them so much," adds Redgrave. "I glory in what all three gave me, and gave to so very many others as well. All three were devoted to their families and gave us, each and every one, from the youngest to the oldest, very happy times, and much to be merry about."
