It hit the news today that we have lost a great man. Robin Williams. Some of you may know him as Mork, others know him as Mrs. Doubtfire. He was an extraordinarily talented man with a huge heart.
In his memory, I leave you this quote from Wiki about Christopher Reeve and his friendship with Mr. Williams:
Christopher Reeve went through inner anguish in the ICU, particularly when he was alone during the night. His approaching operation to reattach his skull to his spine (June 1995) “was frightening to contemplate. … I already knew that I had only a fifty-fifty chance of surviving the surgery. … Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent.” The man announced that he was a proctologist and was going to perform a rectal exam on Reeve. It was Robin Williams, reprising his character from the film Nine Months. Reeve wrote: “For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
Mr. Williams suffer from depression. A taboo subject to many. It’s hard to believe a person who was so funny, covered his troubles so well.
Rest in Peace Dear Man. You will be missed.
