Classic Quotes by Roger Ebert and Chaz Hammelsmith Ebert about their relationship:

"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 husband, my friend, my confidante and oh-so-brilliant partner." Chaz Hammelsmith Ebert 4/4/2013
"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." Chaz Hammelsmith Ebert 4/4/2013
"Just yesterday was saying how his grandchildren were 'the best things in my life. He was happy and radiating satisfaction over the outpouring of responses to his blog about his 46th year as a film critic. But he was also getting tired of his fight with cancer, and said if this takes him, he has lived a great and full life." Chaz Hammelsmith Ebert 4/4/2013
"We are touched by all the kindness and the outpouring of love we've received. And I want to echo what Roger said in his last blog, thank you for going on this journey with us." Chaz Hammelsmith Ebert 4/4/2013
"When I was essentially helpless, she was my tireless advocate. She's my angel. Chaz and I have drawn so close through all of this. She's the most positive force in my life and I am the luckiest man because of her." Roger Ebert 2010
"I refuse to become a recluse. I have a crooked mouth and a dressing around my neck. Nothing to be ashamed of. There are no guarantees. But there is also nothing to fear. We come from oblivion when we are born. We return to oblivion when we die. The astonishing thing is this period of in-between." Roger Ebert 2006
