Everyone Should Be Jealous Of Nora Ephron's Funeral 11

Some people just know how make an exit!

Nora Ephron was certainly one of those special people.

The famous writer/director, who passed away complications from leukemia last month, pre-planned her own send-off. Naturally, this meant her memorial service turned out to be as entraining, heartwarming, and hilarioooos as any of her movies!

Nora had every detail planed — including the location (Alice Tulley Hall in NYC), who was going to speak and even how much time each speaker would get.

Some of the celeb spears that make her list were Martin Short and Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson, who acted out a sketch about Ephron and her husband!

Um… can we get that too? LOL!

Other guests included: Sen. Al Franken, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Alan Alda, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, Rob Reiner, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt.

At the end all party funeral attendees were served pink champagne!

Truly an amazing send-off for a truly amazing lady!

    What a great screenwriter, last move I saw of hers was Julie and Julias, it was great. She willl be missed.

    I read on another site that she published a couple of books of essays, will check with my library to see it they have them and if not, get on the wait list.
