Robin_Williams-2This technically isn’t book related, but for those of you who haven’t heard, one of the greatest comics of our time has passed. If what the news is reporting is true: that he was battling severe depression, how sad is it that a kind and gentle man who brought so much joy and laughter to so many of us had to battle such terrible demons in private. I have so many great memories of Robin, but my first is of him as Mork from Mork & Mindy. I also loved how he, Whoopi, and Billy Crystal started Comic Relief. It’s tough to pick a movie. I loved him as Mrs. Doubtfire, and no one else could have voiced the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin. If anyone has favorite moments, memories, or movies they want to share, please do.

REST IN PEACE ROBIN. YOU WILL BE MISSED.
