"The best comedy touches something that's timeless and universal in people. When it's right, those things last." - Harold Ramis
I'm sure most, if not all of you, have heard of Harold Ramis' passing. He will forever be remembered not only as a comedy legend in film and television, but just a wonderful human being. Ghostbusters is of course one of his most famous creations, and that creation will continue to spark new fans for many years to come. How many people do you know that can quote Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Animal House and Groundhog Day? Ramis was involved in the creation of all these films, and so many more. How impressive is that?
It's important that we celebrate the legacy he has left to us, and not worry about what may or may not happen in the realm of Ghostbusters or other films. His life and legacy is what's important here, everything else like sequels or, what-ifs are not. He will be greatly missed by millions around the world, including all of us. He helped create joy in the lives of so many people, and that joy will always be with us and never forgotten - just like him.
RIP Mr. Ramis, you were a giant in the hearts of many.
