Don Rickles was a cyclone of funny with a heart of gold. Is God ready for your maniacal wit? Would love to hear what you said on arrival.

Don Rickles regularly ripped Frank Sinatra to his face, a man who had ACTUAL mob ties, and got away with it. A true American hero.

A national treasure is gone. Don Rickles' talent was limitless. To know him was a gift. He kept me laughing during 58-years of friendship. pic.twitter.com/B1IXEa9S4g

Don Rickles died like most comics would want to: old, with dates on the books.
