A memorial service has been held for Sir John Mills. Richard Attenborough, Judi Dench and Michael Caine joined Mills' family to pay tribute to the accomplished actor at a memorial service held in London yesterday.

Mills died at his Buckinghamshire, England home in April following a short illness at the age of ninety-seven. 

Dench said he was, "the most talented, the most adorable, the most charming and the naughtiest man I have ever met." Mills' daughter added, "If I had to chose three words to describe him, I think they would be loving, brave and funny. He was the funniest man I have ever known."

Attenborough said of his friend of sixty-three years, "I thought he was a hero then and to me he remained so throughout his life. I shall miss his guidance, I shall miss his caring and his unfailing sense of honor, but most of all I shall miss his loyalty and devotion in our lasting friendship."
