Just lost a piece of my childhood

I am literally in tears as I write this. I went downstairs at work to get some napkins and heard a report on the TV about Gene Wilder's passing. I am 45 years old and still claim Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as my favorite movie.  Gene Wilder was magical.  I of course have been of fan of his work for my whole life, but Wonka will always hold a special place in my heart. This is cliche` but if I had a dollar for every time I watched that movie I wouldn't need to work.

He is with his Gilda now.  RIP Mr. Wilder, please sing Pure Imagination to me when I get there.
