    In Memoriam

    Hands On Comedy

    This is my comedic idol who LITERALLY GOT ME THROUGH BREAST CANCER AND SALIVARY GLAND CANCER! Laughter, as it turns out, IS the best medicine. However, like so many of us who battle chronic depression, he tragically couldn't laugh himself well. It is a "face" and act we use to hide our inner pain. I feel worse at losing Robin than I would if I lost a family member. This may sound hyperbolic, but it isn't. The best chapter in my book involves his autographing my breast prosthetic in Lake Tahoe. Somehow, that hilarious event doesn't seem so funny to me, now. God Bless you, Robin Williams. You will always be my frame of reference on the "quickest wit" on the planet! Those of us who adored your unparalleled sense of humor and timing will never forget you....never.
