“Who Loves Ya Baby? We Loved Her So . . . But God Loved Her Best”
In Loving Memory of Nora Ephron
Ms. Ephron was a wonderful teacher who taught us some valuable lessons. She even taught us the “Rules” to test a Relationship:
A. He's Your “Friend”
B. He Listens.
C. He's Available.
D. He Shows You.
A. Thank You! (That was good!)
That Infamous “Diner Scene!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-bsf2x-aeE
Through laughter and tears, Ms. Ephron showed us through film, with her wonderful “word magic!”
How did she know that whatever she wrote or co-wrote would awaken emotions in us that we could never put into words? Sometimes we laughed, sometimes we cried, sometimes we wished we could watch her movies all day . . .(So we went out and purchased them, and replayed them until they were worn out. When on a business trip, during bad break-ups, we found our way to the nearest video store and purchased our 5th copy of “When Harry Met Sally” just to ease the pain and give us that twinge of “hope” that “not all was lost!”)... We did not want to go to work . . . Or live in the “real world,” take care of the sweet kids or deal with the “imperfect” person in our own life because Tom Hanks and Billy Crystal were perfect-- and of course Meg Ryan and Meryl Streep were wonderful, funny and strong! Whatever “magic” God gave Ms. Ephron, she cast the spell on us with her “Word Wand,” that left us wanting more-- We are so sorry for the pain she endured... So God was merciful and we hope He was gentle. Thank you for sharing her with us! We know you will miss her all the more because she was “Yours!” But, believe me- Ms. Ephron touched so many people, world-wide, we believe God Himself and the Angels in Heaven are laughing and crying with her right down as they welcomed her “Home” to Life Eternal with the worlds “Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant.”
Every time we break out “When Harry Met Sally,” “You've Got Mail” and “Sleepless in Seattle,” especially during the holidays, we go through a range of emotions-- She will forever live in our hearts. Ms. Ephron, you made the world laugh until “They” cried. Rest in Peace, Ms. Ephron. Your movies, screenplays and novels continue to light up our lives.
What an ending to a “perfect” script. We should all be so Blessed!
“Weeping may endure for a night … but Joy cometh in the morning.”
Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of your “Star!” We believe that “It is by dying that one receives Everlasting Life.”
May Ms. Ephron forever live in your minds and hearts as she will in ours!
