I adored this man. I was once sent a signed copy of his book, which I read with joy, sadness, laughed out loud and made me adore him even more. (Ken Wallace, UK)

A spark will go out of the world with Gene Wilder's passing. He is much loved by his fans and I thank him for committing himself to bringing joy and laughter to so much of his audience. My childhood was better for him. (Greg Foster, Australia)
I would like to express my sorrow at Gene's passing to his family. You must have been proud of him. This weekend was the first time my two-and-a-half year old daughter watched Willy Wonka and was transfixed by the movie. May he rest in peace having brightened up the world he left behind. (Eadaoin McSweeney)
