This loss has been difficult for celebs to process.

And, it seems Mel Brooks is having a particularly tough time coping with the death of Gene Wilder, who passed away on Monday due to complications with Alzheimer's disease.

While the 90-year-old had already expressed his grief on Twitter, he didn't feel 140 characters was enough to properly mourn his good friend.

The comedian stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday, and opened up to Jimmy Fallon about how much he misses his comedic partner in crime, saying:

"He was sick, and I knew it. And he was such a dear friend. I expected it. I expected he would go but, I don't know, when it happens, it's still tremendous. It's still a big shock, you know. I'm still reeling from that no more Gene. I can't call him. And he was such a wonderful part of my life."

Even though recalling his fondest memories of the Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory star was clearly emotional for the New York native, he went on to describe some of his best moments with the acclaimed actor.

He hilariously recounted the first time he met the thespian, pitching The Producers to him, crafting the concept for Young Frankenstein together, and many other enjoyable encounters.

And, Mel even got the audience laughing in the wake of Gene's sad passing. Take a look at the clip (above) for the filmmaker's touching tribute.

For those who don't know, ALS (AKA amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease), is a horrific condition which weakens the body's muscles until it can no longer function. At this time, the disease has no cure.

According to Hadid, Ellie sadly succumbed to her illness despite an amazing fight. O'Connell was hanging on to see her daughter graduate college in 2017, a wish which will tragically go unfilled.

Prince

Prince's death continues to affect all of those close to the late singer.

As you know, the music icon was found dead in the elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota and an autopsy later confirmed that he had overdosed on a drug called Fentanyl.

Later, it was revealed the Raspberry Beret singer often stashed the drugs that killed him in over the counter pill bottles, such as aspirin and Vitamin C containers to hide his addiction.

For the Purple Rain artist's ex Charlene Friend, this discovery is just a reminder of how secretive Prince was about his drug use.

Peter Ostrum opened up to Variety about the acclaimed actor's passing, admitting that his older costar was almost like a father figure, even though they hadn't seen each other since production wrapped on their 1971 film:

"It's kind of like losing a parent. You know it's going to happen, but it's still a shock. He was not in good health at the end and it was not unexpected by any means, but when it happens it hits you like, 'Gene is gone and there will never be anyone like him again.'"
