    In Memoriam

    Thank you, Mr. Williams

    I am a Chief in the US Navy and was diagnosed with depression just over 4 years ago. The things that we face and deal with on a daily basis is immeasurable. Very few things have helped me put aside my mood or darkness or tears, but a show with Robin Williams in it...that is something I could go to everytime. Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam, The Birdcage, Aladdin, Fern Gully. Any of his stand up routines, benefits, and especially Mork and Mindy. I have grown up watching what he has accomplished and things he has been through that he was strong enough to admit and overcome. I am sorry he is gone. I am sorry for the family he has left behind and for everyone he has touched with his talents. I wish I could have known him. I am mostly sorry that we will never again get to see him use his talents as he saw fit, but I am thankful that he was here for us, and he will always be with us regardless. I will continue to watch his movies and laugh and cry as I always do. Thank you, Robin Williams for being here and thank you for sharing your gifts with us while you were here. I am sorry that you have left us and I hope that you bring as much happiness, hope, and laughter in your next adventure.
