I feel like I lost my favorite uncle, I grew up with Robin Williams just as many on dA and other sites did, when I saw the news I screamed in horror, grabbed my chest and just cried and cried, not realizing 'WHY' I was crying, ...

I was crying for a man, I've never met besides on screen, in many personalities and many ways possible, but we all 'knew' Robin Williams in a way, ... depression, the voices in his head - when I heard he went through all that, I felt that even the 'great' people have problems, ... bigger problems or smaller in this case bigger and I felt like: 'If Robin can do it, so can I, he's my inspiration!' 

Now, when the news hit me, it hit me hard, my 'uncle' my ... OUR funny uncle is dead, I don't know if someone can relate to the feeling I'm having, but ... I feel like my favorite uncle has passed away - ... so I cried for a few hours straight, still sobbing with the passing images, ... not understanding why he would go for suicide, but even the strongest person that keeps smiling all day can be cracked inside - I realized that I have that in common, I smile and smile and smile but when I'm alone, ... I crack and I'm so afraid like he was for those voices: 'You'll never be good at anything, you keep failing! You should kill yourself!' but then the other voices: 'No, don't listen, they are wrong, you are strong, you have a goal you just keep missing it but you'll get that goal.' it's scary when I read those things, ... How people cope with this, ... 

I have no right to be honest to ... say these things about myself, ... 

Robin Williams made the world laugh, ... he did what he was meant to do and he did it with great energy and strength that I admire from him. That same strength and energy lies within me, I used to be 'like' that, I was idolizing him so much that I tried to be so funny like him but then my demons came and they are still lingering with me. 

I'm so glad that he can now make our loved ones smile in Heaven, ... Heaven became a bit funnier because of him. 

I'm sorry, I'm a Robin Williams fan ... Always have and always will be, ... I always just hope to talk to him one day. Just one chance to say: 'Hi, I'm your fan from ... many fans, ... I'm so inspired by you, thank you for making me smile when I'm depressed and put one of your movies on ... Thank you ...'

No I'm with you on that one. I've seen characters like that too, take the Diablo character: Deckard Cain for instance. From the first game he's always there adventuring with you. He tells you about the places you go, the items you find... even stories about the people of the past. Then, in Diablo 3: Blizzard have it written he dies. I felt crushed like they just killed my uncle... He's a character in a game but so well written I actually felt attached to the old man.

With Robin, man I remember watching 'Mork and Mindy' then he grew with us as Peter Pan, Mrs. Doubtfire and of course, Aladdin's best friend Genie... when we first heard it was on Facebook and, knowing how vindictive some trolls can be we didn't believe it either until a podcast from Conan O'Brien confirmed it. We have been the same with Harold Ramis, Corey *voice of the original 1984 Bumblebee* it just seems unreal that here's our childhood heroes being taken from us in a very real sense... I just hope whoever or whatever god/s he believed in have him safe now and he's where he will be loved though we still stuck here are missing him so much.

It's said we live on in memories and through our actions in life, that the being the case: Robin's immortal and we always have the cheeky alien Mork, the wise-cracking radio DJ in Good Morning Vietnam.... and the lovely old nanny Mrs. Doubtfire to have him with us always.

A lot of us grew up with him, most of my childhood memories were through his movies and him making me laugh. Just hope he finally found peace.

He shall be missed...I guess I'm not the only one who sees him as a "Fun Uncle" I was shocked too, a friend of mine told me that I shouldn't believe it until I got the facts....I bet it was because he didn't want to believe it himself...It was tough for me to tell another friend that "I wasn't kidding" when he thought I was just cracking a joke.

:rose: I hope he and his family  finds peace :rose:

Damn.. another great actor has passed away.

He will be missed greatly along with the other great actors that too have passed on from this life recently.

R.I.P Robin Williams, may you find peace where ever you are.
