Deeply saddened to hear about Roger Ebert’s death. This man has been in my life by way of either his TV show (which was at that time, Ebert & Roeper) and his blog— which I cherish/read religiously.
Thursdays were my favorite because Ebert would update his blog with the week’s reviews. I mean, shit, sometimes I’d even wait at 12:59 a.m. for the site to get updated.
Reading Chaz Ebert’s statement was painful to read. Short, simple– you could tell she was ready for his death years ago. What else is left to say, really?
“We were getting ready to go home today for hospice care, when he looked at us, smiled, and passed away. No struggle, no pain, just a quiet, dignified transition.
I’m assuming his blog will stay up– for archive purposes. Can’t have Jim Emerson and Richard Roeper writing there forever, though.
