RIP Robin Williams… oh how you will be sorely missed.

August 12, 2014

facebook951407864690570I was going to write my own memoriam post about Robin Williams but Ruth over at Flixchatter summed it up so beautifully. I will only add this: Williams put so much joy and hope and laughter into our hearts thru the years and his passing as left a hole where happiness once was in the movie world. Pray for his family. Williams’ work inspired and uplifted so many, including yours truly as HOOK remains my all-time favorite film, and as Pan the Man has flown away we feel a bit like lost boys now. Robin Williams we thank you for so many smiles and laughter, O Captain, My Captain. -T

RIPRobinWilliams

I can’t believe I had to do another in memoriam posts when the sting of the last one hasn’t quite left me yet. I was just about to get on the elliptical machine at my gym when I saw my friend texted me: “Robin William died. OMG.”

Then I looked up at the rows of TV sets above the gym equipments, and sure enough… his face was splashed on the telly, along with the indescribable and incomprehensible caption: Robin Williams Dead at 63 in apparent suicide.

My heart sank.

In fact, it’s now four and a half hours after I learned of his passing… and it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet. How could a man who brought up so much joy and laughter to so many people… could not find anything in his heart to be cheerful about? This was after all the same man who made his best…
