    Gene Wilder

    Hey Y'all,

    The Mrs. and I did a little tribute to the late great Gene Wilder. I think the song is relevant here.

    As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    What a great tribute! This song has been in my life since I was 3, when my dad took me to the cinema to watch Willy Wonka. Yes, that was my first movie ever.

    Thank you for this. You guys are fantastic

    Wow!! Very moving... wonderful talent, wonderful tribute. Willy Wonka actually scared me a bit as a kid. But I came to love Gene Wilder later

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    What? Oh, my gosh, I didn't know he had died. We just watched Young Frankenstein this weekend and were talking about how wonderful he is... was. RIP Gene Wilder, truly a unique gift to this world.

    Beautiful, beautiful tribute, Byrne, thanks for sharing it. You two are awesome.

    I've been singing this song in the car all week. As a bonus, the Youtube link led me to discover Megan Jean and the KFB's other vids, and I am now a huge fan. Thanks again, Byrne.
