A Tribute to Robin Williams

Hateful, hurtful and negative comments will not be approved and the commenter will be blocked from commenting on this blog.

I loved Robin Williams. I grew up with him. I fell in love with him when I was seven years old while watching Mork and Mindy. He never failed to make me laugh. I laugh when I think about him because I always think about the fun times when he made me laugh. It helps me with the healing process. I feel like I lost a close best childhood friend. I feel so bad for his family and friends. I haven’t been able to watch any of the tribute videos on youtube yet because this is still a sad time for me. At least we have his movies to watch. I enjoy reading all the tribute his friends have done for him. I saw the tribute to Robin at the Emmy awards last night on line and it was good. I’m thankful we had him as long as we did. Robin Williams R. I. P. (rest in peace).

DEATH HOAX POST DELETED

To avoid any confusion, I decided to delete the death hoax post. A few years ago, someone thought it would be funny to write a post claiming Robin Williams had skied off a mountain while filming a movie in a European country. This was a hoax. It never happened. Due to recent events, I decided to delete the post.

Robin Williams’ Family Remembers the ‘Gentle, Loving’ Actor

TIME

Robin Williams had a child with his first wife, Valerie Velardi, and two kids with his second wife, Marsha Garces Williams, the woman who had been his first kid’s nanny. At the time of Williams’ death, he was married to his third wife, Susan Schneider. It all seems pretty complicated, but clearly the family all had a lot of affection for the man they were all connected to. The kids, Zak, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22, and his second wife Marsha all released statements about Williams’ death and they’re pretty heart-wrenching.

Zelda’s is the saddest.

“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…

Depression Kills

You may have noticed I changed the name of this blog to Robin Williams Memorial Blog. This blog is now a blog in memory of Robin. I feel so sorry for his family, friends and everyone who worked with him. Perhaps if he had sought help for his depression sooner, he would still be with us. All he wanted to do was perform and when he was faced with the possibility his career was over I think it was just too much for him to bear. His TV show, The Crazy Ones was canceled in May 2014 even though the ratings were actually still good with 5.2 million viewers after only one season. His two latest movies The Face Of Love and The Angriest Man in Brooklyn only opened in a few theaters. Although these movies are available on video on demand as well, very few people watched these movies and the ones who watched them gave them very low ratings. His final movies have yet to come out. I can not imagine what he much have went through in his final months, weeks and days. Unfortunately, everything seemed to be stacked against him. Robin made me happy. He made me laugh. I’m glad we had him for the time we did. If you have a friend or relative who suffers from depression, do not ignore it and do nothing to try to help them. Try to get them help. R.I.P. Robin. He was one of a kind.

Coroner Suspects Robin Williams Death ‘To Be A Suicide Due To Asphyxia’ — Read The Police Report

This is so sad. I guess after his show was canceled in May after only one season and his two latest movies which were only limited releases had bombed, he decided his career was over and he just couldn’t bear the thought of doing anything else except performing. I am so shocked and sad. I can not imagine what his final months, weeks and days must have been like for him. I know how his kids feel because I lost my dad almost seven years ago in November and it still make me cry when I think about him. I think the thought of his career being over and his financial problems were too much for him to bear. Depression kills at any age.
