Adieu to a Comic Genius

I heard the news of Robin Williams' suicide while out driving today. My immediate reaction was as if I had lost a friend.
I have always loved his work - so warm and engaging and funny. I seem to be one of the few people who liked What Dream May Come, a  movie about the impact of tragic death on a family and I guess his family are suffering hard right now.

Precious moments indeed. RIP Robin, I am sad you are gone.


  1. Maryanne , this is so sad. Robin Williams was a very talented man. Such a tragic lost.My heart goes out to his family.

  2. So Sad.
    l too love that movie and thought it was very eloquent and special.
    So Sad.

  3. I found What Dreams May Come to be very moving, I watched it once and have tried again but just can't manage it without dissolving. I'm going to try again, when I'm by myself

  4. I was a big RW fan. My jaw just dropped when I heard on the radio of the news. I think I've watched all his movies and thought he was the funniest. Oh and yes I can do the Mork hand shake!
