I was so sad to hear of Robert Ebert's death. My husband and I have been fans from way back when. He fought his cancer bravely. Reading his journal, it is so very clear that he could not have lived his life fully or fought the cancer without the unconditional support of his wife. I think it is so easy to go day-to-day and forget that each one of us is or has at some time been supported by at least one very devoted and loving person. Robert so beautifully reminds of this when he writes about his relationship to his wife. Of course I understand, behind closed doors there is no perfect relationship. However, there is secure attachment. This is what Robert and Chaz seemed to have. My heart goes out to Chaz as her grief must be great.
