I will miss him, - his sharp wit, turbo speed brain, his sense of what is morally right, a sweet, funny , sad, loveable man, -
A "Pagliacci" - a clown that cries behind his mask xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
please add your favourite clips, / pics / quotes of Robin R.I.P.
love hugs x wendy k x & kelly cats xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
We seem to be losing many of our stars lately and he so very popular.
Going to be missed on our screens.
condolences to his family.
One of the funniest of his films I think is Mrs Doubtfire.
How sad to hear the news of Robin's passing. He was a pure genius and will be sorely missed. He could always make me laugh no matter how bad times were. I remembered 2 of my favourite movies were his. Good Morning Vietnam and Awakenings. Here is a link to his bio on IMDB, it's surprising how many movies he was involved in, some yet to be released.
There can be no better way to say goodbye to him than this short clip from Mork and Mindy.
I think Robin's son, Zak, spoke beautifully about his father when he passed this message on today.
"Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a little grayer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought."
A beautiful tribute to his Dad and the man who brought so much fun and laughter to so many for so long. Tonight, Dr. Drew said that his humour came so fast it was almost like an explosion of Tourette's.
We are now learning more about another side to Robin Williams we weren't so much aware of -- the sadness and depression that lurked within. Apparently it is prevalent among comedians, and there is a high suicide rate there.
I just saw part of a CNN special on Robin where they showed his start with Henry Winkler on Happy Days... then to the spinoff, Mork and Mindy. Henry Winkler said it was up to his part to keep a straight face which he found impossible. lol That video, Sue, of him as Mork is very fitting right now. And Wendy and Lily, it looks like we all liked the same movies the best!
God bless him for his generosity and for bringing us years of healthy laughter. His soul is at peace now. I just wish he could have found that peace he so badly needed when here.
To Robin. Thank you.
I lit a candle on the candle thread last night, if anyone wants to do the same.
Love you all.
KOKO LOVE ROBIN.
Notice in the video how Robin didn't have to be the entertainer, the person "on stage" -- it was KOKO who entertained Robin.
A beautiful letter written by Zelda Williams...
"My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again."

What a beautiful, gracious letter that is! She does not show anger (even if she feels it) towards the cruel people who have sent nasty and mean messages to her, saying her Dad was selfish for commiting suicide and such. Instead, she makes her Dad proud by sending back some humour. She is her father's daughter.
The family will be hurting terribly, unable to understand. All the more they need our pure, loving thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for posting that, Lynn. God bless them.
What a wonderful tribute...........
Sue, thanks for the article about Robin Williams and WoW. So many millions of people play the game and for Robin to be immortalized as a character in the game is a beautiful tribute to a fabulous man.
Wendy the user has removed that video you put up there
Angel, those are wonderful posts, about depression and all the Robin Williams' characters rolled together. I think he was a little bit of each of those characters and that's what we all could see
Good video, Lily. It's still hard to believe we're not going to see him in another movie, but I did enjoy watching him in Mrs. Doubtfire on TV last week.
Wonderful tribute, Sue. Thanks.
I think depression is something that... if people like Robin who take their lives could have those moments over again... with caring people around and supporting them, most would not go through with it. The pain just becomes unbearable and if there's no one to talk to... and no one who will listen... bad things happen. He wanted to please everyone and make everyone laugh, when he himself was suffering so terribly.
