RIP Harold Ramis by ninjaink RIP Harold Ramis by ninjaink
I've been seeing my tribute pop up on a lot of social media the last couple of hours, so I thought I would share this year. Harold Ramis -- Egon Spengler for a lot of us -- passed away today and I created this as a tribute to him. Thank you all so much for sharing sympathies with me via e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter. This particular piece has my Facebook page attached to it, in case anyone is trying to reach me. Slimer, please take good care of your friend on the other side.

And maybe one day, we'll even see the spirit of Harold Ramis. Wouldn't it be cool to see the ghost of a Ghostbuster??

Y'all should read this little fan fiction on this site called "The Crossing-Over of Dr. Egon Spengler" It's the sweetest and saddest story I've ever read in my life. After I read it, I was crying, my heart was hurting, and I now love and miss Egon more than ever. Every time I read it, my heart hurts and I start crying. I even typed a little letter to Egon explaining how much he means to me. But I warn you, if you read it, I guarantee that y'all will start crying.

And Egon will always be remembered as the brains of the Ghostbusters.

There was a similar composition with the art resembling the animated show, and Slimer leading Egon to a "White Light" doorway. This is really nice.

He will be missed...

He was one of the best story/script writers to date. He was so creative as well. He was also my favorite Ghostbuster...

Why did you leave us so soon?! 
Cry forever

Egon is my favorite Ghostbuster too. And he was only 69!!! But maybe one day you'll see his spirit.

I hope that we can be glad in his death, for now he is ghostbusting for the Lord now. We should be happy for all that he's accomplished in life which so enrinched us. He will be missed, never forgotten, and most of all will be happy he is in a better place.

I was saddened when I got the news; Then cried when I saw this. Ghostbusters was one of the first movies I saw as a kid & Egon was and remains to this day, my favorite character.

I like how it looks like Slimer's telling him "It's ok"

I wasn't a Ghostbusters fan at the time of Egon's death, but I have been now for months. I bet it was hard for Peter, Winston, and Ray. And Egon is my favorite too.

A very excellent tribute.

I feel that comedians are something very special for humanity.  They help us laugh at ourselves.  They have a way of pointing out 'the plank in thine eye' and pointing to the one in their own as well, laughingly commiserating the 'plankness' of it all.

I am sad now.  Sad because I will miss on the wonderful talents that Harold Ramis brought and shared with us all.  Crying

I'm also relieved that he's now out of pain from the ailment that I didn't know he was suffering from.  Rest well, Mr. Ramis, and thank you.

And yes, please take good care of him, Slimer.

This image is starting to appear a little bit everywhere on the Internet. Until today I have never cried at actor's and other entertainers passing, even if their death saddened me.
Then I saw this image this morning...
You managed to capture something very powerful in this pic, something that could deeply touch the generations of kids like me who grew up with this movie. This is easily one of the best tribute I have ever seen and I thank you for that.

RIP Harold and thanks for everything.
