Gene Wilder has died
« on: August 29, 2016, 03:50:32 PM »
He was 83. The actor and comedian performed in many classic roles, such as Willy Wonka.

Rest in peace.

Memory eternal!
"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?" - Mark 8:36 (DRA)

Do Thou, O Sovereign lady,
By Thy joy-bestowing honorable Icon "Queen of All,"
Save those who with fervent desire implore Thy grace;
Deliver from afflictions those who run to Thee;
From all dangers do Thou guard Thy flock,
Who ever call upon Thine intercession.

My first thought was that he's now with Gilda.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

May he rest in peace! 

Blazing Saddles was what I remember him most for, but of course, the famous Wonka meme
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
