PARK RIDGE, N.J. (AP) - A private viewing for James Gandolfini (gan-dahl-FEE'-nee) has ended in a small New Jersey town near where he grew up.

Mourners at Wednesday's invitation-only wake for family and friends left flowers at the Robert Spearing Funeral Home in Park Ridge.

The 51-year-old star of "The Sopranos" grew up in nearby Westwood. He died last week in Italy.

Nurse Robin Caprio wasn't allowed in to the private viewing and stood outside with a photo of herself and Gandolfini taken when his show filmed a scene in Paterson.

Broadway theaters dimmed their marquee lights in memory of Gandolfini, who earned a Tony Award nomination in 2009 for his role in "God of Carnage."

Gandolfini's funeral will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
