Very sad news yesterday…
Robin Williams -- who first made America laugh and eventually touched "every element of the human spirit" in a remarkable range of performances -- died at his Northern California home Monday. Williams apparently took his own life, law enforcement officials said. He was 63.
President Barack Obama's statement sent from the White House summed it up:
"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."
He was a multi-talented man who brought a lot of laughter and smiles to the world. So sad that he couldn't find his way out of his depression…it's really an awful disease.
He will be very missed.
