The shocking news of a comedic legend's passing has led to a touching Robin Williams memorial at one of his most famous movie scenes, the bench in 'Good Will Hunting.' Located at Boston Public Gardens, it is significant in so many ways, one of which involves his talk with Matt Damon's character about loss.

29-year-old Boston resident Nick Rabchenuk headed to the now Robin Williams memorial and found two others sitting there. After being joined by another couple, he took out his chalk and they wrote personal tributes to the beloved actor. He tells Buzzfeed, "That one scene on the bench is arguably one of the best scenes of any movie made in the last 50 years. It’s so simple and straightforward, it just hits you right in the gut."
