    In Memoriam

    Robin Williams

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     deancb was the son of a television critic when he met Robin Williams in Los Angeles at a press event: 'He just broke through the line, it was hilarious - photographers surrounded us. I have an extra squiggly mark on my autograph book because it was upside down at first.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I had the pleasure to meet Robin when I was a boy during his run on Mork and Mindy. My sister and I were waiting outside of a press event when he came out. He broke through the line of paparazzi to come over to us. Surrounded by photographers, he joked with us for a long time. I'm devastated by the loss of my childhood idol. He was truly the funniest man I ever met.
