Robin Williams has died

......apparently by suicide due to severe depression. What a loss! He brought so much laughter to so many people. How sad that he was hurting badly inside.

Bummer. One of my favorite comedians. I thought he was very funny, and he always made me laugh.

RIP - he brought the world many a laugh.

I hope his family is able to weather this as best they can, especially his daughter.

Very sad...

This is so sad. He was a great actor. I hope he'll be remembered for what he did and not how he passed. Depression is such a horrible disease.

I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor... I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

RIP Mr. Williams...thanks for all the laughs.

It is so sad... I always thought that he was a bit manic and needed help... and you would think someone like him could get it... but, I guess the demons are stronger than we can ever know...

Rest in Peace..

Yes. I don't think it was a case of he couldn't or didn't get help. The Help simply didn't help
