A comic, an actor, an entertainer and human soul that so many could feel they could relate to. I first saw him as Mork in Mork and Mindy. His humour, his energy was so entertaining and more than that. How could you not be motivated and excited to learn more after watching Dead Poet’s Society? How could you not feel moved at Good Morning Vietnam? Mrs. Doubtfire touched the hearts of children and adults. I will not go on because I there will be countless detailed tributes to Robin Williams’ life.
I first heard of his death on the radio driving home tonight. I was truly saddened but not shocked. I knew he has been struggling with depression for a long time. I can only imagine his pain and trying to survive despite this.
He will be missed but he will always be remembered.
