5* Famous People I Want To Meet In Heaven

Inspired by @karlalucia whose list (I think) was requested by @Boogie (*— the title says 5 but I've included more than that because I'm terrible at narrowing down my choices. 😬)
  1. Audrey Hepburn
    Like most, my love of Audrey Hepburn began with her film work. However, the older I've gotten, the more I've come to admire her for the life she lived and the time she dedicated to trying to help ease the suffering of others.
  2. Carrie Fisher
    It's hard when your heroes die and Carrie Fisher was—without a doubt—my hero. From being one of the first to teach me that females could save the day just as easily as their male counterparts to the words she wrote to her openness about mental illness and the fearless way she lived her life and loved her people, she was what the phrase one in a million was invented for. I just hate that I never got the chance to tell her that.
  3. Debbie Reynolds
    Aside from her own incredible career, she was a passionate lover of film who dedicated so much of her life to trying to preserve it for future generations.
  4. Dusty Springfield
    I'd mostly want to make sure she had found peace because while she was an incredible singer who helped introduce the sounds and singers of Motown to the UK, she was also a woman who was tortured by insecurity, the secrets she was forced to keep, alcoholism, drug addiction, and a mental illness that wasn't well-known/understood.
  5. Gilda Radner
    She left more of a mark on the world comedy in her tragically short career than most leave in an entire lifetime.
  6. Greta Garbo
    I've always been fascinated by the life she lead and the way she walked away from a career that many others would kill for.
  7. Lauren Bacall
    She was smart, funny, and never hesitated to speak her mind or live life by her own set of rules. Also, could you even begin to imagine the stories she would have to tell?
  8. Lucille Ball
    Not only was she a LEGEND who helped blaze the trail for women like Tiny Fey, Amy Poehler, etc by being one of the first women to have a television show that centered around her, she was also the very first woman to run a production company, having bought her ex-husband Desi Arnaz out of his share of Desilu Production.
  9. Mary Blair
    Honestly, I'd just be happy to sit quietly and watch her create.
  10. Mary Tyler Moore
    Like Lucille Ball, she was trailblazer both in the world of comedy and in helping to show young women that there was more to life than a Mrs. at the beginning of their name.
  11. Maurice Sendak
    I'd like to be able to thank him for helping to nurture my imagination.
  12. Maya Angelou
    She was phenomenal, both in the poetry she wrote and the wisdom she shared.
  13. Mike Nichols
    I don't know what to say other than the man was a genius.
  14. Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
    He was the man who helped me discover my love of words and the way they can be woven together to tell a story.
