Unhappy RIP Robin Williams

Many of us can relate to the antics of Robin Williams and his film family in the movie RV. It wasn't his best work but we can relate to much of it.

However, few can dispute the wide ranging talents he had. Rapid fire comedy, heart touching drama, sharp whit and many more. He was a persona we could connect with at some if not many of his levels.

He was my "Elvis" of comedy and I am nearly in tears reading about his passing. Like so many talented people, he was also a human being with human strengths and weaknesses.

Na-Nu, Na-Nu Robin. You will be sorely missed.

"Actually, it's perfect. I just never knew John Wayne walked that way". My favorite line from on of my favorite movies, The Birdcage. RIP Robin Williams, you will be sorely missed.

Here's a video that most may not have seen with Robin Williams. He worked a lot with the USO and there lots of military people that will miss him too. I wish his family the love and help that they will need to get thru the next few days and years.

A comedic genius is gone.

So sad that depression can snuff the life out of someone just like that.

A bright light extinguished by darkness.

I was shocked when I read about his passing.
I may plan a trip down to where they filmed RV.
If depression was the reason behind his death, then please everyone who knows anyone or they themselves is suffering from depression get help.
It is a serious illness that has to be treated with professional help.
I know because both my mother and sister needed professional help and hospitalisation for their depression.

He was pretty public about his depression which probably helped a lot of folks to realize they weren't alone with this mental illness. He was apparently in talks to do another Miss Doubtfire movie

Th brightest minds are tormented the most because they think and search so much
