A private wake for James Gandolfini was held in Park Ridge, New Jersey Wednesday, the New York Daily News reports.

Gandolfini's widow Deborah Lin Gandolfini and the couple's 9-month-old daughter Liliana were among the first to arrive at the invitation-only wake. "It's a nightmare for the whole family," said Bob Price, whose wife is a Gandolfini cousin. "It's a horrible, horrible thing, everybody is just devastated. This man was everybody's hero. It's just the worst thing that could have happened."
