Robin Williams

When the alert came through on my phone, I felt like I'd been sucker punched.

Please let it be a hoax.

It has to be a hoax.

Unfortunately, this headline is real.

Robin Williams, one of the all-time greats, is dead.

I've shed a few tears over celebrity deaths, but none quite like this.

I'm a sucker for a funny guy, and this one..

Well, he's the funniest one of all.

May you finally be at peace, sir.

I can't stop thinking about him, unbelievably sad. His family must be devastated.

Lovely post Misty....

Really hate this. My husband and I couldn't watch our usual Tonight Show last night because laughing just didn't feel right.

I really wanted to believe it was a hoax as well. I read it in my facebook news feed and I was so sad. Robin Williams was my all time favorite comedian, and his stand up comedy was the best.

Depression is such a real and complicated thing! Add addiction to it (which most do to self medicate, to feel normal, to feel anything but what they are feeling). Breaks my heart to know anyone can feel that sad and alone. Hits home big time for me as there is a family history of depression, addiction and family member who also committed suicide. You never know what someone is struggling with in silence.

So, so sad. I was in a restaurant in NYC when I saw the breaking news on the TV in the bar. It'll be one of those "Where were you..." moments for me.

Never in my life has the death of someone I didn't personally know affected me so much. He was my hero, the man I was constantly inspired by, my favorite comedian, one of my all time favorite actors, and a local man whose home my very own husband has been too more than once.
To see the world grieving so heavily tells me I am not alone in this, but it doesn't make the heart hurt any less.
He was amazing and ... I am sure there are angels in heaven peeing their robes with laughter now that he is up there with them.
