Roger Ebert was a magnificent man. He wrote tremendous movie reviews for years and became a well respected man in his profession. Basically, if Roger Ebert said a certain movie was excellent, it was and you should definitely take time out of your day to see it. He died at the young age of 70 years old on April 4th. He had cancer of the thyroid and salivary glands since 2002. Despite this condition, he continued to write magnificent reviews and began writing on various topics on his blog, from alcoholism to atheism.
Roger Ebert will be greatly missed by everyone, but especially by his wife Chaz and one of his co-workers Christy Lemire. Christy wrote a wonderful article honoring the dearly departed Roger. Many young people do not know who this man is, which is sad. I hope in spite of his death, that his memory will still be able to touch the hearts of the young and old. May the inspiring Roger Ebert rest in peace.
