NEW YORK, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Harold Ramis' passing shocked fans of his extensive body of work, including Barack Obama, who said Monday that Ramis' films made us "laugh until it hurt."

But many were waiting for Bill Murray, one of Ramis' most frequent collaborators, to speak of the man he had first met as a teenager. Murray's brother, Brian, worked with Ramis at Chicago's Second City. Their first film together was 1979's Meatballs.

“Harold Ramis and I together did the National Lampoon Show off Broadway, Meatballs, Stripes, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day," Murray said in a statement via his lawyer to TIME.

"He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him.”
