    In Memoriam

    Robin in the Water


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     klokey called this 'a remarkable moment in my lifetime. Meeting this man who I watched growing up as the Genie and Mrs. Doubtfire-- giving me a childhood of laughter and warmth-- meeting him meant meeting a part of my childhood I never expected to see again.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I met Robin Williams in the ocean off the shore of Wailea, Maui. I remember feeling so silly for risking taking our iPhones out into the ocean waist deep in water to ask Robin if he would take a picture with us. He didn't even hesitate. He was vacationing there and we ended up seeing him several more times around-- once specifically with his wife while we all watched these incredible whales out in the water from the beach. A very special memory in my heart.
