Another Loss…

I awoke today and first thing I saw was the headline.

* Robin Williams, Oscar-Winning Comedian, Dies at 63 in Suspected Suicide

Robin Williams, the comedian who evolved into the surprisingly nuanced, Academy Award-winning actor, imbuing his performances with wild inventiveness and a kind of manic energy, died on Monday at his home in Tiburon, Calif., north of San Francisco. He was 63.”

My condolences to his family and friends.

  1. Yes Paul…So Sad!

    He acted with such ingenuity in every role he played!

    Who would ever know that he was so troubled?

    Who ever “can replace him”?

    • Gaia,
      Robin Williams touched millions of people’s lives. And in MHO, was a One-of-a-Kind genius.

  2. Further to my earlier comment on Robin Williams I want to add: My follow-ups on him is surprising and interesting…in a way of the many times he was in Ontario,mainly Toronto. On one of his earlier visits to Toronto he visited Yuk Yuk’s; a well known Stand Up Comedy Bar. He just walked in, with no bookings…and did his Comedy Skits anyway…then there was the movies he made here as well. Apparently the Yuk Yuk’s visit was before he became known for the Mork and Mindy TV show and the many other shows and movies. The Patch Adams Movie was a big hit…becoming a Household Name in many circles.
    He is so widely mourned… from the world over.
