The Hollywood Reporter reports that Robin Williams is dead.

I'm speechless. This is so sad.

Absolutely unbelievable.

 

Edit: As Ron Nasty has posted elsewhere, Ringo posted his condolences.

I can't believe it... Just heard a few minutes ago and my stomach dropped... I knew there'd be something about it here...

I just feel what MMM said... Disbelief in his death and the cause. I just can't believe he would kill himself, I understand he was battling with depression and substance abuse, but there's no way it can get better if you take your life. He will be very badly missed by millions, he left such a large impact on people from very young ages to everywhere above.

Personally, he is one of my favorite, if not favorite, comedians. He was a great actor obviously in all the funny movies he was in, but also in more serious roles such as the one he played in Goodwill Hunting. I love Mrs. Doubtfire and have great memories of watching that movie. Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies just because of the genie.

I just feel empty. This is a big loss and I hope the best for his family now (especially his children) in this horrible time.

It really makes me realize how much of an impact these people have on our lives without us ever meeting them. It also makes me dread the days we hear of any more Beatle passings, or deaths of other great people in the world.

Bye Robin... I'll miss you. heart

My uncle Dru was in a rehab facility in the Bay Area about a decade or so ago. How he wound up out there is anybody's guess (he's kind of the black sheep in the family), but another person who was rehabbing at the facility was Robin Williams. According to my mom (and all of the following is what she told me that Dru told her), Dru told her that he and Robin were in a pick-up basketball game at the facility when Robin spotted a black mole on my uncle's forearm. "You might want to get that checked out," Robin told him, and he did, and it was a pre-cancerous mole. When Dru went to the hospital to get it removed,  he found out the procedure was already paid for in advance, no questions asked. Dru asked "Who did that?" The doctor said the guy insisted that it remain anonymous, but did says his initials were "R.W." When Dru asked Robin about it the next day, as Robin was leaving the facility, Robin told him the only way he wanted Dru to pay him back was for my uncle to mend the relationship with his daughter. Robin said something to the extent of "Family are all we have in the end. We need to let them know we love and care for them." I don't know for sure, but that might be the last conversation Dru had with Robin. And after hearing of Robin's death, that was the first thing I thought of.

Barry Levinson's tribute in particular made me teary.

There was always a kindness to Robin. An inquisitive man trying to understand the madness of mankind. But when the comedy motors were off, you could sense the vulnerability of the man. There was always a sense that he could easily be hurt. And if he were hurt, how quickly could he heal? A bleeder in a world of sharp edges. There was an innocence to his thoughtful intelligence. If there were an endangered species list for mankind, he would have been first on that list. He was perhaps too delicate for this difficult world. We lost one of a kind. We all lost a friend.

We've lost another legend. Lauren Bacall passed away.

Very sad week this is shaping up to be. Rest in peace.
