Actor Robin Williams has died, aged 63

Post by Eleanor on Tue Aug 12, 2014 11:02 am

I read about it last night. sad Strange, how the death of somebody you don't know can affect you.

He apparently committed suicide. I knew he'd checked himself into rehab a few weeks ago, as a precautionary measure. Couldn't believe it when I saw the headlines!

It's sad. He has been battling depression for years.
I kinda feel that society has failed him.

Quite an inspirational man. I remember reading about something roughly a year ago. A friend of his (also somebody famous, although for the life of me, I can't remember his name - the one who played Superman) had been in a horse riding accident and was left paralysed and suicidal. Robin Williams, to cheer him up, dressed up in a surgeon's costume and bustled into his hospital room, pretending to be a Russian proctologist about to perform a rectal exam.

He essentially saved that man's life by just making him laugh. I wonder how many other people Robin Williams has saved with his humour.

I feel terrible for him if he was suffering from such depresion that suicide was his best or only option. But I will say, as awfully sad as it is, the family he left will suffer far more & longer.

To his wife, family & friends. God bless & be with you. The loss of a loved one no matter how is a deep cut to your heart.
R.I.P. Robin. You gave so much to so many. You will not be forgotten.

Reeves - that's him! Thanks happy

Incredible man. I hope it's of some comfort to his family that he gave so much to others, despite the dark thoughts he must have been having.

It really is a dark day. I admired him, his sense of humor,  his dignity & his care for all. He will be both missed & mourned by millions across the world.

RIP Robin. I truly hope that you are now at peace.

It's so sad that he could bring happiness and joy to so many people but couldn't save any for himself.

Wherever you are Robin, I hope you find peace and happiness.

Just found this on Facebook:




IN MEMORY OF ROBIN WILLIAMS:
Q. What do you believe is the key to life?
A. "Once again: family and friends. And a good pet.
For pure loyalty there is nothing like a pug." - Robin Williams
