Remembering Robin McLaurin Williams
On August 11, 2014 the world lost one of the greatest comedic geniuses of our time. When my husband told me Robin Williams was found dead in his Paradise Cay home near Tiburon, California from an apparent suicide. My heart ached for Robin Williams and his family. People in his life said he suffered from depression. It is so heartbreaking that he felt that there was no one or anything worth living for anymore. Depression is a terrible illness. Robin Williams was born in was born in Chicago, Illinois. He moved with his family to Woodacre, California when he was 16. Robin Williams called the last forty something years in the San Francisco Bay Area his home. I never had the chance to see him in person doing standup comedy in the 1970s in the San Francisco area. He was such a funny man with a warm heart. I definitely remembering watching him on the Mork & Mindy television show. My all-time favorite movie of his was 'Mrs. Doubtfire'. Rest in peace Robin William’s thank you for the many years of laughter.
