Robin Williams: Rest in Peace

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams apparently took his own life at his Northern California home Monday, law enforcement officials said. Williams was 63.

Losses can not be measured sweet friends and voids can often not be filled. We have been moved and touched with humor and warmth that is nothing short of infinite.

Because he lived…some of us laughed out loud: alot.
Because he lived…my life was so so enriched.

Who can forget:

GOOD MORNING VIETNAM

AWAKENINGS

THE FISHER KING

DEAD POETS SOCIETY

THE GENIE IN ALADDIN

GOOD WILL HUNTING

PATCH ADAMS

JAKOB THE LIAR

AND on and on and on………

“He has been battling severe depression of late,” his media representative Mara Buxbaum told CNN. “This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Coroner investigators suspect “the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia,” according to a statement from the Marin County, California, Sheriff’s office.

Robin Williams dead, sheriff says

Legendary Hollywood actor and comedian Robin Williams surprised fans Friday when he tweeted a photograph of himself wearing a kippa.
‘Rabbi Robin’ Williams tweets photo of himself in a kippa
The photograph shows the star of hit TV sitcom “The Crazy Ones” smiling at the camera while co-star Amanda Setton puts the Jewish skullcap on his head. Williams is not Jewish.

Williams tweeted: ““Too late for a career change? Rabbi Robin?” The actor’s twitter followers liked the tweet. One man responded “Never too late Rabbi Williams.”

Here is a small glimpse of Back in the day when humor did not have to be politically correct.

Please watch sweet Friends:

Robin, Your legacy will live on forever.

I will not say to your loved ones that you are no more but that I am so thankful that you were.

You are never gone.

Some of his words:

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”

“Death is nature’s way of saying, “Your table’s ready.”

It was once said:

Death is only passing through God’s other door.

No doubt Robin, you will have them all laughing on the Other Side.

    A real tragedy and terrible loss. He has given us so much good and has taught us so many wonderful life lessons through his work. A true assest to society who struggled so deeply. May his soul rest in peace.

    You remind us all that he wasn’t just an amazing comedian but a VERY fine ACTOR. thanks for that.
    We will all miss him……I wouldn’t wish that horrible pain of severe long-lasting depression, enough to take one’s life …on ANYONE.
    So sad.

    Many are the times that he made me laugh. The world is a lesser place without him. I shall always remember him fondly. May God grant his family comfort while they grieve for him.

    Robin Williams often made me laugh. But he could make me cry too — as when he starred in the film Awakenings. I don’t have many DVD’s in my home library, but I do have one. Wonderful film! I’ll be posting an excerpt from it on Sunday, when I post a tribute to Robin Williams.

    I miss him already. <3

    My favorite thing he ever did was his guest appearance on Happy Days as a brand new character “Mork”. Remember?
