‡ RIP Robin Williams ‡

This morning I woke up to find a shocking news about Robin Williams.

The most compatible article title that could describe my feeling is probably this.

"Robin Williams can't be dead.
How could Robin Williams, of all people, just stop breathing, moving and, most of all, talking?"

I might not be his biggest fan in the world; I do not watch every movie he starred in but he made my childhood days so much colorful and wonderful. I know that he has so many notable roles but, for me, his role in "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Jumanji" are the most notable ones for me.

And, of course, his voice as the Genie in "Aladdin".

Quoting from somewhere, it was said that Robin Williams was like that uncle you didn’t see often but, when you did, he’d always make you smile and you remembered nothing but good things.

I admit that I didn't follow his track for the past few years but, really, he is definitely, without no doubt, one of my most favorite actors ever. His smile enlightened up my day as if he smiled at me.

I couldn't say much but, with this post, I want to give my deepest condolences for the family that he left and the world for losing a great man. 

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken.

On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."
- Susan Schneider, wife of Robin Williams

"Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind.

He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit.

He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets."
- President Barack Obama

Last but not least, these are not my words but they reflect what I'm feeling when I read about him battling depression which led to suicide -- according to an article here.
"Robin Williams chose to make other people happy when he wasn't even happy himself and I will always have endless respect for him because of that."

Rest in peace, Robin Williams.
