America said goodbye Monday to one of the greatest film critics in history — Roger Ebert.

Dozens of friends, family members and fans attended a public funeral service held in Chicago.

Ebert was not only a famous film critic, but a writer and actor as well.

Those closest to him say they will remember him most for his heart.

Ebert died last week after a long battle with cancer. He was 70 years old.
