    A Heart Rendering Story

    ''O'Hara's Wife'' gave me comfort and provided me with a sense of healing if not closure in grieving over the lost of my love ones. The movie confirmed my belief that our beloved departed will always be with us until we reunite with them once again. Although the movie is considered ''ghostly,'' I find the movie hilarious and enjoyed the acting prowess of Ed Asner and Mariette.
