Remembering my Friend, Nora Ephron

Sadly, my friend, Nora Ephron, passed away on June 26, from pneumonia brought on by acute myeloid leukemia.  Nora was, of course, a journalist, writer, and director of films such as When Harry Met Sally and Julie & Julia. Very few on her long list of friends knew that she was ill, as Nora loathed complaining.  I had the great honor of attending her memorial held on Monday at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in Manhattan, called “A Gathering for Nora.”  It was certainly a memorable experience.  To see aa clip of Nora on my television show, click here.
