Another piece of my youth is gone. He was fantastic in his many roles.

RIP sir, and thank you.

It was his brilliant performance as comic relief in Bonnie & Clyde that put him on the map... GREAT movie...

Thanks for all the joy you gave us, Mr. Wilder. Rest well.

It's worth pointing out that Gene Wilder had been happily married to Karen Boyer Wilder for the last 25 years. I doubt she would appreciate all this "reunited with Gilda" stuff.
