Subject: Fw: Gene Wilder has been married to Karen Boyer for the past 25 years
Wilder has been married to Karen Boyer for the past 25 years (more than his previous 3 marriages combined) and she was the one who was by his side throughout his illness up to the very end where she was sitting by his bed and holding his hand as he passed away.
So I'm posting this pic to pay tribute to her status as his wife and to pay respect to her for the loss of her love and husband.
When Gilda Radner passed on, Wilder did very little in the way of making films, and the marriage and Wilder's grief was highly publicized. Wilder lived a private life after that, and his marriage to Karen Boyer was never publicized, which is the way I'm sure they both wanted it. That they were together for 25 years says they did indeed have a powerful love for each other. ~Scott
