    God bless anyone who feel so alone and isolated. God bless anyone that is suffering from depression and anxiety. Anyone that feels no other option but suicide.

    I’m so sorry Robin. I wish your pain was never there, although; I truly sympathize. My heart goes out to you and your family. May you finally be at peace.

  • Latasha Harris

    It’s sad but true that the greatest comedians are the ones masking the most pain. My heart goes out to any person that turns to suicide, because they feel like there’s nothing to live for!

    To paraphrase Don Maclean from the song American Pie
    I don’t remember if I cried
    When I heard about his widowed bride
    But something touched me deep inside
    the day the laughter died

    I hope Robin is at peace..

    Living in LA in the late 80’s-early 90’s, we frequented the Improv Comedy Club on Melrose Ave. One night we went there expecting to see up-and-coming comedians. Instead, we were absolutely thrilled when Robin Williams just showed up completely unexpectedly up and did a full comedy routine. He was hilarious and it was SOOOO exciting!!!

    For one to have so many around him and still feel totally alone. I pray that you are now resting in Gods arms may you have peace. Pray for the family in this time of hurt to know that you are not alone in this time of need you all are in our hearts and prayers.

    I am a clinical psychology student and I am truly saddened by the death of such a great man. It brakes my heart that this wonder and talented actor, comedian, father and husband was in emotional distress that caused him to feel like his only option was to end his pain. He will be for ever remembered by my family, he was truly our favorite actor. My heart and compassion goes out to all of his family for their loss. I to loss a family member recently, though the loss is hard the only comforting thought I can offer, is that his memory will live forever within every ones heart that he has touched throughout the world. My sympathy and condolences to his family for their loss.

    I have depression, and have had it since childhood. Like Robin, I use funny little comments to help hide it. When people ask me if I suffer from depression, I reply…No, I’ve learned to have fun with it.
    I could say that I know how Robin felt, but the truth is… I don’t have any idea. Each person has their own demons to fight. Mine is a physical handicap that keeps me in constant pain. You can only deal with constant pain for so long until it beats you down to the point where you just can’t put on that happy face mask you wear to hide your feelings from the world.
    I’ve had people tell me that they though I was a mean person, until they got to know me. Then they think I’m a crazy person, always cracking jokes and keep them laughing.
    My son recently asked me, what I had to be depressed about. I just left the question unanswered. He probably wouldn’t understand if I explained it to him and he’s 36.
    Monday morning, I woke up and tried to be happy, until I set on the edge of the bed…at this point I realized my pinched nerve had become pinched again. I got on up and took a shower. Back was still a little sore but I could tolerate it. I got dressed and went to the kitchen to get a drink to take my first handful of pills for the day. My back pain was almost gone, almost. I went to the living room and took my pills. I did some reading until it was news time. I just turned it on when some people came by to wish me a happy birthday. I turned 63. I even mentioned that Robin Williams and I were the same age again. Then a photo of Robin filled the TV screen. I turned up the sound and heard that Robin had been found dead. Have been depressed ever since.
    Rest in peace, Robin.
