Private Wake Held for James Gandolfini; Funeral Scheduled for Thurs.

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A private wake for the late Sopranos star James Gandolfini was held on Wednesday in Park Ridge, N.J., the town where he attended high school.  He was born in nearby Westwood.

According to, close friends and family members -- including his widow Deborah Lin, the couple's 9-month-old daughter, Liliana, and his 13-year-old son from a previous marriage, Michael -- attended the wake at Robert Spearing Funeral Home.

A funeral service will be held Thursday morning at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, in New York City.

Gandolfini suffered a fatal heart attack in Italy last week while on vacation with Michael.  He was 51 years old.
