Hollywood Actor Robin William Comits Suicide

This comes as a major shock to me. Really inconceivable to say the least. Williams was found dead in his Marin County, Calif., home Monday in an apparent suicide. Marilu Henner says the friend she started out in the business with in the late 1970s (Williams on the hit show Mork & Mindy, Henner on Taxi) seemed to be firing on all cylinders.

Williams had asked for her to appear on The Crazy Ones season finale as his ex-wife. He embraced Henner on the set when she arrived and then demanded to see pictures of her family on her smartphone.

"People would be surprised. He seems to 'on' all the time, but he was such a warm, cozy, friendly and loving person," Henner says. "And he was very interested. He wanted to see all of my pictures. He was one of those rare, real and interested people. It makes me cry just thinking about it."

Williams will be appearing in a bevy of upcoming films, including the recently wrapped Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, where he has played Teddy Roosevelt in three chapters of the successful comedy franchise. Read the full article on USA Today.

I for one cannot and will not ever forget his stellar 1993 performance when he starred in the comedy Mrs. Doubtfire as a divorced man who dresses like a nanny so he can see his children. I loved this movie and have really fond memories. May the good Lord rest his soul in eternal peace. Robin, thank you for the legacy, you will be forever remembered.
