Harper

Swing low, sweet chariot.

Critically-acclaimed writer Harper Lee, immortalized by her novels “To Kill a Mockingbird” and the recent “Go Set a Watchman”, passed away in her sleep peacefully at the age of 89. Her death was confirmed early morning Friday by the City Hall in Monroeville, Alabama, where she lived. She was the only author to win a Pulitzer prize for her very first novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird”.

“Her passing was unexpected,” Lee’s family said in a statement. “She remained in good basic health until her passing. The family is in mourning and there will be a private funeral service in the upcoming days, as she had requested.”

“This is a sad day for our family,” Her nephew, Hank corner, added. “America and the world knew Harper Lee as one of the last century’s most beloved authors. We knew her as Nelle Harper Lee, a loving member of our family, a devoted friend to the many good people who touched her life, and a generous soul in our community and our state. We will miss her dearly.”

Twitter users also sent Ms. Lee off with their love and prayers through a bevvy of tweets.

Lee, who suffered a stroke in 2007, was a very private person who was rarely interviewed.

People also tweeted their favorite quotes of her timeless novels.

Tim Cook, Matthew Modine, and many other personalities also took to Twitter to pay their respects.

Requesciat In Pace, Harper Lee. You have made many of us redefine justice, and stoked the flame in us to fight for what is right. We shall never forget your legacy.
