We still can't believe that Roger Ebert is gone, but thankfully, the world will be able to publicly pay tribute his incredible life and say their final good-byes to not just a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, but an amazing man.

The legendary film critic, who passed away Thursday after the cancer he'd been battling for years returned unexpectedly, will be honored tomorrow morning in Chicago, Illinois, where he dedicated 46 years of his life to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The 10am ceremony will take place at Holy Name Cathedral, and will be open to friends, family and even the public.

However, if you do plan on attending in person, keep in mind that seats are available on first-come, first-serve terms!

Donations can also be made in lieu of flowers at The Ebert Foundation, c/o Northern Trust at 50 S. LaSalle Street, Chicago.

We can't even begin to predict what kind of turn-out his service will bring, but we imagine it will reflect just how much joy and happiness he brought to countless people over the world for so many years.

You may be gone, but you will certainly not be forgotten, Roger.

May you R.I.P.

    I'm sure that many, many fans will attend. Roger Ebert was a legend in the world of film critics and nobody will ever be able to touch him in level of importance.

    Used to love his show with Gene Siskel and he was one of the few critics whose opinion I usually agreed with and respected if I did not agree on occasion.
    RIP and condolences to his family and friends.
