    Speechless. He was a big part of my childhood.

    Jaw dropped. Poor guy had been fighting with his addictions for so long, cant help but wonder if it got the best of him like it did Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    RIP dude.

      Dammit. After three family deaths in the last three months, I'm really not taking this well.
      This is what the older generations must have felt like when Bob Hope died. Of course, while death is never welcome news, the unexpected nature and cause makes this that much harder to cope with. It's really unfortunate when you have a person that brought laughter and smiles to millions of people, yet suffered so much inside. A friend of mine committed suicide the week after my mom passed away and I saw the pain inflicted on his family, and thus the person I grieve for the most is Zelda and his wife, who must be devastated.

      RIP

          Manson will never have the respect that Robin had, a funny, but flawed man who had many demons and did his best to fight them. But he recognized his problems and did his best.

          Robin Williams, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rik Mayall, James Garner,Eli Wallach, Mickey Rooney, Bob Hoskins, Shirley Temple, Sid Ceaser, Maximilian Schell, Casey Kasem, Harold Ramis, Paul Walker(not insanely talented, but a very generous and charitable dude), Make up Legend Dick Smith, and Marilyn Burns(Sally from the Texas Chainsw Massacre)...Been a rough year as we've lost some insane talent.

              I'm having a hard time accepting it myself.

                Still kind of in shock, too.

                Reading some interesting stories from people who had met him on Reddit.

                This one really stood out:
                "This sucks.

                Robin Williams was an awesome guy.

                17 years ago, my Dad's dad killed my grandma and then himself in a drunken rage. We held a massive service at the church my dad's mom attended in San Francisco. It was obviously a hard night for my dad. My parents stayed late in the city to clean things up and spend time with family. It was about 2:30 AM when we finally started making our way home, but before leaving the city, my dad wanted to stop and get a doughnut at some random doughnut shop we passed by. We all went inside, and lo and behold, Mr. Robin Williams was there, sitting in a booth eating a couple doughnuts and drinking some coffee. He noticed our well dressed, solemn looking crew walk in, and pretty quickly after we sat down to eat the delicious treats, he came walking over. Now, I admit fully that I do not remember what he said to us, but I do remember what he looked like and I remember him Introducing himself as Robin (Which is my aunts name, I think thats why it caught my attention). He ended up joining my family at our table and (as my Dad always said) he just started making pleasant conversation, which quickly turned in to him making my parents smile, and soon after he had us all laughing. I couldn't tell you what they laughed about, but I remember seeing my parents laugh and smile for the first time in weeks. My dad remembered that so fondly. He always said it was exactly what he had needed in that time, and that he appreciated the way Robin Williams went about it. It wasn't that he was a celebrity, he was just being a nice guy who saw a bunch of sad folks and realized he could probably make a difference. And he did. I loved hearing my dad tell that story because you could tell that moment meant a lot to him. I'm sad he felt the need to go."

                  so he's dead. instead of mourning in grief and sorrow over his death, you should all be watching his films instead and be having a good time. i'm pretty sure that's what he would want.

                    Its only natural to grieve, especially as he's barely been gone a day. This is generally how things go.

                      Robin Williams wife just announced that he had Parkinsons. I guess now we know why he made the choice he did.

                            This death really rocked me to my core and I guess it's because Robin Williams was a such a strong presence during my childhood. Aladdin is one of my fav Disney movies and Mrs Doubtfire became an important movie for me during my parents divorce. A good portion of his filmography and stand-up work has entertained and moved me in some way that I feel the need to commemorate his passing in some way. I've already made a donation to a parkinson's charity (if you didn't know it seems that he was diagnosed before his death) and I'm probably gonna make a custom calendar here for my personal memories of him, listing all the great roles he had played over his storeyed career, such as this scene from Patch Adams which I feel is the perfect sign off:

                              what a rather poor choice in my opinion, my dad has Parkinson's and even had a bad case of Pnemonia over a month ago. over 10 years older if i might add. Robin even checked himself into rehab just barely a few months ago, even stating that it was the best course of action for him. so either the Parkinson's was really bad, which i dont believe, because he's no where in the stage of what my dad is, or the depression was really bad, and i'd like to believe the latter.
