In Memoriam: Gene Wilder (1933-2016)

Gene Wilder has passed away.

News of his passing came suddenly and quietly on social media yesterday afternoon.  I can't help but feel just a little less.

The world is a little less funny today.  It's a little less happy.  The afterlife, however, is a little more classy.

Mr. Wilder's work was as varied as he was talented.  From his work as an actor to his work as a writer and novelist, Wilder's shaggy elegance was his trademark.  His love for the late Gilda Radner was touching.

There will never be another.

Gene Wilder was 83.
