    In Memoriam

    My love for Robin Williams

    My love for Robin Williams goes back a far as I can remember with his very first TV Show "Mork & Mindy," all the way to "The Birdcage." I remember watching "Mrs. Doubtfire" over and over again with my children when they were younger. I remember following head over heels for this man in “Popey” this strong man to come and save me like her did with “Olive Oyl” Popey the movie is still one of my favorite movies to this day along with all the movies he acted in over the last four decades.
    When he laughed I laughed, when he cried I cried, and when he loved he had you wrapped around his little finger all over again. I loved this man as a role mold throughout my life. Like a father I have never had and learned from him the way that life should be, could have been even in a fantasy world like “Peter Pan” I know he wasn’t my father and that it’s just TV, but you must understand that’s all I had to get through the abuse I had to go through as a child and teenager with an alcoholic mother. I couldn’t wait for his next comedy show on HBO when it was awesome, nor could I want for his next movie as I know it would be more awesome then the last.
    I would set on the floor and watch his moves over and over again with my older sister and then later when I had a family I would watch his later movies up to the newest movies with my children so that they would feel the love and laughter he would always bring to the Screen. I love him so much that I cried today for him and his family and loved ones. I didn’t even cry at Michael Jackson death, and I really like him. See that’s the word, “LIKED” not “LOVED”. All my love to everyone who cried a tear or more because it takes a lot to cry for someone you really don’t know.
    He had to have been really sad and felt like his life had no meaning to have had taken his own life, which I can’t believe is the way a real comedian with so much compassion for life and others could have ended his life. He did have problems with drugs and alcohol and he did try to get help. We can only hope that he his remember with much love and laughter that he did bring me and my family all these years.
    I wanted to be a comedian for the longest time and yes I funny and yes I could become one who is a funny as him and I would have loved to have worked with him and asked him to not have done this to us fans and to his family, but if this turns out to be natural death then he left us with tears no matter what his death came to be. I know that he will always be a loved acted to me and my family. God Bless him and his family.
