Harold Ramis died on Monday morning, causing fans of the star and his many comedies – including Groundhog Day and Caddyshack – to grieve on social media. Read below for statements and tweets from his famous fans, ranging from Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones to Family Guy mastermind Seth MacFarlane, and check back as we’ll continue to update this page throughout the day.

“I was fortunate to be able to do two movies with Harold Ramis,” Groundhog Day and Multiplicity star Andie MacDowell told EW in a statement. “He was the kindest of any director with whom I worked. Harold was a genius. On top of his talent, he could do the New York Times crossword puzzle faster than anyone!! I am lucky to have known him as well as I did. I will miss him.”

“Harold was a force of good in the universe,” Year One star Jack Black said in a statement to EW. “So funny, sweet and thoughtful. He will be deeply missed.”
