Wall Street Journal columnist and best-selling author Jeffrey Zaslow died in a car crash Friday. The Journal's Douglas Belkin and Stephen Miller write that Zaslow, who wrote the Journal's "Moving On" column, had a "rare gift for writing about love, loss, and other life passages with humor and empathy." They highlight some of his memorable stories and columns:

She also writes that when former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband were interviewing prospective writers about their memoir, Zaslow was the only one who started off by asking Giffords how she was feeling. He co-authored the book with them.

Zaslow's last book, "The Magic Room: A Story About the Love We Wish for Our Daughters," uses the fitting room at a family-owned bridal shop to tell the stories of women who are about to get married. Zaslow wrote a column in January about what wedding-gown sales say about changing conceptions of marriage.
