Just three quick seconds after I posted my post about how the Internet prematurely declared that Nora Ephron was floating up to heaven, The Washington Post reports that she passed away tonight. Nora was 71.
TMZ says that Nora suffered from cancer, but The Washington Posts says that she died of complications from the blood disorder myelodysplasia.
As I wrote in my post below, Nora basically wrote every single movie Meg Ryan was in and if you want to know the names of all the movies she wrote and/or directed, just look in the boot box marked “rainy days/sad days/eat raw cookie dough” days under your bed and you’ll find every single one of her movies.
Nora is survived by her husband Nicholas Pileggi and her two sons.
Rest in peace, Nora Ephron.
