    What a shame, he was a very talented man. He brought laughter to millions of people, such a shame he couldn't wipe out his own unhappiness. He will be missed.

    I'm so sad about this-- it just happened too close to home, literally and figuratively. His home was very near where I live, and so he was a "local." I also have many artists in my family and know this struggle too well. And on top of it, my good friend's son died this morning. So I just feel sad. :-(

    Praying that he is now at peace and praying for his family. They must be more than devastated.

    It's a pity that some of the funniest people have the saddest lives. They make us laugh when they want to cry. He was just three years older than me.

    So sad. It just goes to show that a lot of people struggle with their issues, no matter how famous or how much money someone has or doesn't have. He was incredibly talented and he'll be missed.

    Lots of sadness in the world. Loved Robin Williams. He made a choice. Others....not so much.

    i rec'd a call yesterday from the DH of one of my best friends. She lost her battle with cancer. Was facing her third go round of chemo. (5 year battle ). Puts things in perspectiveve. She was 57. She wont be here to see her only child walk down the aisle. She got engaged as mom lay in a hospital bed. Her friends are also devastated.

    What a shock when I found out. Didn't know he was struggling with his own demons. RIP Robin Williams you will be missed.

    People make their own choices. I am truly sorry for his family. I know too many people with cancer and other illnesses that are fighting with every ounce of strength that they have to live -- like my husband did. He did not live.
    May God have mercy on Robin William's soul.

    You never know someones struggles. It broke my heart the hear he had been struggling with depression. One would never consider a man that spent his life make others laugh would have a hard time with inner peace.

    So many brilliant people choose to end their own life & struggle with deep depression. Robin was another, he is already greatly missed. He's gone on to other adventures.

    The world has an empty spot today. So many in sadness for one who made the world laugh and all the time, inside, he was crying. May he now rest in peace.
