"My idol, Carl Reiner, wrote about the human comedy," Van Dyke tweeted of The Dick Van Dyke Show creator, who died last night at age 98. "He had a deeper understanding of the human condition, than I think even he was aware of. Kind, gentle, compassionate, empathetic and wise. His scripts were never just funny, they always had something to say about us."
