Hook, Genie, Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, Alan Parrish…..in each film he made Robin created an emotional bond with the audience. Robin was my best friend growing up. Some of my best childhood moments was watching Hook with my cousins and pretending to be Peter Pan. It’s like he was part of my family. He was, actually. I don’t wanna talk about how he died, lets celebrate how he lived instead. Such a crushing loss. I would never had another friend like you. Rest in peace, pal. Thank you.
Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.
ohmygod I just looked this up…..it’s real ohmygod I can’t believe it
childhood hero to so many
rest in peace
the laughter you gave us will live on forever
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
Rest in peace.
