Re: Rip Robin Williams

The heart is crying, the mind is smiling, the face is laughing that was his motto in life. pleasing all but hurting on the inside.

RIP Robin, you will be missed by all those who loved you.

Re: Rip Robin Williams

What a sad sad day. His Patch Adams helped me in many many ways and was one of the most heart warming movies I ever saw - especially when he says goodbye to his girlfriend in the movie with the poem. What a loss of a brilliant actor. So sad - just finished watching all his The Crazy Ones episodes yesterday. RIP.

About a month ago I was watching a you tube of an interview with, I think Stephen Fry, Robin Williams was also 'on the sofa' having already had his interview. He stole the show, so witty and so hyper, I remember thinking at the time how sad he must be inside to have have to present this front constantly, how draining it must be to always be on, and the co-interviewee and interviewer at times looked a little pained and sorry for him.
Poor man.

Depression is a serious and sometimes deadly illness and anyone with symptoms should go to the doctor and get treatment.
After reading your post, I looked it up for a watch. Good stuff.

Re: Rip Robin Williams

This one really got to me and I'm not one to usually be very sad or upset about celebrities' deaths (they're strangers after all). But I was really shocked yesterday when I read about RW. How he must have suffered - I really hope he finds his peace now.

I'm just watching Good Will Hunting..It is hard to believe he is gone. So sad to think what he must have gone through.

Re: Rip Robin Williams

I enjoyed a lot of his work ........ when he was playing a character; but I always felt a little uncomfortable, when he was playing Robin Williams - when being a guest interviewee.

His wife said that he was battling the parkinson's disease.So difficult to handle something like that especially when you suffer from depression.
Amazing actor!He will not be forgotten!!

Re: Rip Robin Williams

What an exceptionally compassionate individual and brilliant comedian he was. He seemed to be so full of life and always trying to make others smile Just tragic. RIP
