Writer and director Nora Ephron passed away Tuesday night in New York City.

The creative genius behind such iconic films as When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless In Seattle died at New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she was being treated for acute myeloid leukemia and pneumonia.

Born in New York and raised in Beverly Hills, Ephron was the eldest daughter of two Hollywood screenwriters; two of her sisters also are screenwriters, and a third is journalist and author.

Ephron herself started out as a journalist.

She was 71 years old.

Our thoughts to her family and friends. Sending them all very positive vibes!

    Truly sad. Many of us had no idea she was sick, let alone so terribly sick. One of my favourite movies that you have written was Sleepless in Seattle. R.I.P. Nora.
