Marc Wilmore was a character, a gentle man, and a clown. I loved him. Most of the time he made me laugh. Sometimes he told me stories with such truth and vulnerability it made me cry. He was the sweetest and the funniest person in the room always & I wish I could give him a hug. https://t.co/SGxrsWSd8E— JessicaLeeWilliamson (@JLWforever) February 1, 2021

I’m devastated by the loss of Marc Wilmore. Marc was my favorite - I hung onto his every word. He was empathetic beyond measure, not to mention the funniest one in the room every damn time. Warm, genuine, uniquely funny - that was Marc. I love him. It was a joy to be his friend. pic.twitter.com/ejXusX4hmc— Henry Gammill (@HenryGammill) February 1, 2021
