As if we weren't already upset enough about Roger Ebert's passing, we have such mixed emotions over his wife Chaz's description of their life together — we're saddened that such an amazing time together has to come to and end, but we're elated that they had that experience together at all!

Remembering her beloved, she eloquently revealed:

"We were getting ready to go home today for hospice care, when he looked at us, smiled, and passed away. No struggle, no pain, just a quiet, dignified transition."

"He fought a courageous fight. I've lost the love of my life and the world has lost a visionary and a creative and generous spirit who touched so many people all over the world. We had a lovely, lovely life together, more beautiful and epic than a movie. It had its highs and the lows, but was always experienced with good humor, grace and a deep abiding love for each other."

We can't even handle this. We are so so SO moved by her words!

She continued:
