"Rust" cinematographer Halyna Hutchins will be remembered at a private ceremony for family and friends, per People. Hutchins' husband, Matthew, shared a heart-wrenching statement with the media before her funeral. Last month the 42-year-old cinematographer was tragically killed on the set of "Rust" after Alec Baldwin discharged a prop gun during a rehearsal. Santa Fe authorities reported that the firearm that killed Hutchins contained a real bullet. In addition, Deadline reported Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said they found "500 rounds of ammunition" on the set of the western film and that there was "complacency" on the "Rust" set.

After Hutchins death, her husband Matt said, "I don't think there are words to communicate the situation." He continued, "I think that we will need a little bit of time before we can really encapsulate her life in a way that is easy to communicate." Matt and the "Rust" cinematographer have a 9-year-old son. 

Stephen Pizzello, editor-in-chief of American Cinematographer, told People, "Matt always was amazingly supportive of her career. She was totally devoted to him and their son, but he also made a lot of sacrifices to enable her to do what she was doing." Hutchins' husband gave a devastating statement right before her funeral that will break your heart.

Androsovych said, "Andros was incredibly close to his mother and fell silent when told she was dead." The 66-year-old continued, "Matt was really worried because the boy withdrew into himself and couldn't say a word for two days." The worried grandfather added, "This tragedy has wrecked a beautiful perfect family — everyone who knows them is destroyed by sorrow." There are no words that do justice to this tragedy.
