Rising star Rachel McAdams never worked with Heath, but wrote on her MySpace page, "My heart goes out to Heath's family and friends during this time of great loss. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back and I can definitely say he had a wonderful career ahead of him. Undeniable talent and a loving new father. It's so tragic to see it all end so soon and sudden."
Renfro, 25, was known for his roles in "The Client," "Apt Pupil," "Telling Lies in America," "Bully," "Ghost World" and other films. The young actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Jan. 15 of undetermined causes.
Renfro was only 10 when he was cast in the role of a boy who had witnessed a murder in the 1994 film "The Client." Acclaim for his work in that role led to several other roles in other major Hollywood movies and acclaimed independent films.
Tuesday's burial service was preceded on Monday with a funeral service and a receiving of friends at Stevens Mortuary Chapel.
After delaying for two hours because of icy roads, pallbearers loaded a pewter-colored casket containing the body of Renfro into a hearse at approximately 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, and family and friends drove in a procession from Stevens Mortuary in North Knoxville to the small Red House Cemetery in Blaine.
Many cars pulled to the side of the road alongside the Millertown Pike and Highway 11W as the motorcade passed. Two Grainger County Sheriff's Department cars bookended the procession once it crossed into Grainger County.
On Tuesday afternoon, a minister read from 1 Corinthians while family members and friends wept.
After the ceremony, Renfro's cousin and close friend Jesse Hasek said that Renfro had just stayed with him at his Knoxville home before he had returned to Los Angeles.
"It was the best visit we'd ever had," said Hasek. "His son was with him, and everything was perfect. Our kids played together. His little boy is just like him."
Hasek, who is the lead singer of popular rock band 10 Years, said that Renfro and his 4-year-old son had visited Knoxville from Dec. 29 until Jan. 9 and had stayed at Hasek's home.
In addition to his acting, Renfro had made the news because of his brushes with the law, including drug-related arrests. Hasek said that Renfro had straightened his life out and seemed very happy.
"He had hit rock bottom and had come way back up," said Hasek. "He was proud of himself."
Hasek said that there was no mystery to Renfro: "You know absolutely everything bad about him, because everything bad about him was published in the papers. And everything good about him, everybody (his friends and family) knew. ... He lived life to its fullest. So many people liked him because people could see his heart. He had such a big heart. He almost had a childlike innocence."
Hasek said that he felt as if God had provided Renfro with one of the best times of his life just before Renfro's death.
"At this point, there are no regrets," said Hasek. "I'm just proud of him."Source - the local paper

Hours after Heath Ledger’s untimely death, crew members on the Vancouver set of his new fantasy adventure movie, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, were sent home, a source tells Us.
“I just got the call [Tuesday] saying everyone was being let go,” the on-set source tells Usmagazine.com. “We were supposed to start this weekend, but obviously they fired everyone today.
“They don’t know yet what they are doing with the footage that was already shot,” the source adds.
Ledger was on a break from filming when he died Tuesday. Shooting had begun in London last December. He was last photographed on set Jan. 19.
“Right now, everyone is in complete shock and can’t even speak,” the on-set source says.
The movie co-starred singer Tom Waits.
A rep for the movie’s production could not be reached.

JACK NICHOLSON says he cautioned HEATH LEDGER before his fellow Joker actor’s death.
The movie legend was dining at the Wolseley restaurant last night when a snapper told him about Heath’s passing.
Jack, in town to promote new movie The Bucket List, replied “I warned him” then later told a fan “I told him so”.
The photographer told The Sun: “Jack came out and the first thing everyone wanted to tell him was about was Heath.
“He looked a bit bemused and I wasn’t certain he even knew who Heath was.
“But when he said he ‘warned’ Ledger it was definitely eerie.”
There's a short video of Jack being papped and talking to the press at the source page.
FORT EDWARD - NewsChannel 13 has learned that former Phish front man Trey Anastasio recently spent some more time behind bars in Washington County.
Anastasio avoided jail time last year by pleading guilty to a felony drug charge. The 42-year-old guitarist and singer admitted to driving while under the influence of drugs in Whitehall in December 2006 and was sentenced to participation in Washington County's drug court program.
NewsChannel 13 has learned that the rocker, who now lives in Saratoga Springs, was sanctioned by the drug court last week and ordered to spend three days in the Washington County Jail.
A participant in drug court can be sanctioned and sent to jail for a number of reasons, including failing to show up for the program, showing up intoxicated or failing a court-ordered drug test.
Anastasio admitted to being under the influence of drugs and alcohol when he was pulled over by Whitehall police. He had Vicodin, Percocet, Xanax and heroin in his car.
