Robin Williams 1951-2014

This week we morn the loss of the late and great Robin Williams. He was a man that made us laugh, cry and feel deeply. We all have a favorite movie from the Dead Poet Society, Good Will Hunting, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire and so many more. As I looked through Facebook it's astonishing how many people listed a different film/TV favorite. He had us at "Nanu Nanu" and he will be missed.

What he has also brought to our attention is the topic of depression and how it doesn't discriminate. His children Zelda, Cody & Zachary have taken to social media to express their deep love for their father. This man did not lack in love that is for sure. With that said a person can be loved deeply and yet be so alone. I write this because I hope that if you are feeling suicidal or know someone who is please get yourself or them help.

We thank the the talented Mr. Williams for the laughs he has brought us and hope he is finally resting in peace.

"You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them... In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing, And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night... You - only you - will have the stars that can laugh."
