Sad Day.........

........................I don't do comedy.........but there was one man other than my husband who could usually make laugh...........Robin Williams..... We were so surprised and saddened to hear of his passing..........apparently by suicide......How can someone who made so many people smile and laugh and perhaps take themselves a little less seriously.........  be so sad himself....?    My all time favorite films of his are ofcourse Mrs. Doubtfire......Patch Adams.....What Dreams May Come. If you have a favorite movie please do share........Rest in Peace Robin..... Hugs! deb

So many of us from so many different places are shocked and saddened by his loss. What a gift Robin Williams was to the world. My favorite films are The World According to Garp, Good Morning Vietnam, and of course, Mrs. Doubtfire! I only hope he knows now, how very special he was to the thousands who admired him so! Thanks for the memories dear Robin!

I was so saddened by this too, but not totally surprised as I had heard him talk to different ones in interviews about his severe depression and addictions-the how he did it was quite a shock to me.
I don't do comedy either, I remember Mork and Mindy was just "too much" for me lol but I did love him in his movies-good morning viet nam is probably my favorite along with Patch
He will be missed, he looked so old too and he was 2 years younger than me

Wow, I came to visit and saw this. I had NO idea until just now. I thought he was in a sitcom on tv. I also thought it was doing well. Guess I don't know much because I don't do comedy, either.

I think the only show I ever saw him in was Mrs. Doubtfire and it was a bit too much comedy for me. How sad. Now to do an internet search to learn more about his passing.

OMG, I wept when I watch the morning news with Charlie Snow and they played his interview with Robin. Every movie, interview, comedy routine was my favorite...We grew up together being the same age.

As a person that suffers from depression I totally understood and sympathized with his mental issues. They just posted the details..I totally understood that too. I only wish he could have calmed his demons.

He left us all with very fond memories of him.

Rest in Peace Robin Williams, you are loved.

It is sad. He made people laugh, but struggled hard with addictions and mental illness.

There is such a fine line between comedy and depression - it is almost as though the two things are different sides of the same coin. Very sad.

I often believe the most talented of us frail beings are the most tortured. RIP xox

I couldn't get my mind around it at first. I kept thinking it was a mistake. Then I cried. He was such a wonderful man. I don't think I could pick a favorite movie of his, I loved them all. Such a gifted actor, he could play any role.

Have you heard, his wife said he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's? I don't know how advanced it was. So sad. He made the whole world laugh and his movies will live on to continue doing so.

My faves are "Good Morning, Vietnam" and "La Cage aux Folles".

Linda said...

I was equally shocked. So very sad. I just wish, now that he is gone that the cruel world will let him rest in peace and don't drum up gossip about him and his family.
He will be greatly missed.

I loved all his movies.

Yes, it was sad and shocking to hear about the actor's tragic death.
My favorite was Mrs. Doubtfire.
