In fact, we’re still bowled over by the number of Hollywood A-listers who cleared their schedules to fly to Chicago and bid the big O farewell.

But for everyone who wasn’t there, today is the day to tweet their farewells and run their goodbye-Oprah clip packages.

(We’ll be adding as the day goes on, so check back for new tributes.)
