Goodbye Egon Spengler

You will be missed, Harold Ramis.

And always remembered for the brilliance you created and encapsulated.

Ghostbusters was, by far, one of the best films from my youth. Everything about it makes me feel better. About life. About love. About poltergeists. One day, my children will watch that movie. And they will love it.

Your genius will live on and I am grateful to know it. Also, Egon Spengler was one of my first crushes. But that's just between us two.

May the rest be in peace.

I was in NYC this weekend and planned on seeing the Ghostbusters firehouse but didn't end up doing it. I really wish I had now. It's not like he was there or anything, but I could still pretend the boys were in there, doing their thing.

I saw that yesterday, the firehouse put up the Ghostbusters sign in memory of him.

So many timeless icons from my youth are passing away, starts to make one feel old.
