Boston bench from ‘Good Will Hunting’ turned into Robin Williams memorial


I’ve got to admit — this story tugged at the heart strings.

Most of the Robin Williams stories coming to light today have been sad but my defenses have kept me pretty even. This story punched me right in the feels.

Fans of the legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams, who died Monday, turned a bench where Williams and Matt Damon shared a scene in the classic Boston movie “Good Will Hunting” into a makeshift memorial Monday night, leaving flowers and writing quotes from the film on the ground.

A petition has been created to place a bronze statue of Williams seated at the iconic bench.

Right in the feels!
