    In Memoriam


    Not only a comedian

     
    Most people will remember Robin Williams for his comedy. And with good reason. But I saw a side of Robin that few know. Growing up was not easy for me. Depression was constantly hounding me. One day my English teach showed us a movie. It was the first movie that i knew the actor was Robin Williams. I have never heard him praised for this movie. In fact I am bound to believe very few people know of this movie. But this is the movie that helped me get through high school and through the next years of torture while looking for myself. What Dreams May Come was a movie that ripped my heart into pieces and then put it back together again. It was a movie about love and suicide. To this day I cant watch it without crying. To me the tragedy and in a way blessing that is Robin Williams is that he will always be remembered as a comedian who made people laugh. But for me he will always be the man who made me feel.
