  1. I first knew of Robin’s work as an actor. In the 70’s, he performed at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. He was ablaze with energy; impossible to ignore (or upstage).

  2. I was a college freshman at the University of Kentucky in 1986. A radical evangelistic preacher came to our courtyard to “save our souls” where a crowd gathered daily. My friends and I spotted a man sitting in the grass who looked a lot like Robin watching the preacher. We looked at that man and said, “Hey, that guy looks just like Robin Williams!” This was shaggy-haired, hairy-chested, Robin. One of my friends yelled from across the courtyard, “Are you Robin Williams?” And he just waved. We always wondered if that was him, hanging out on a college campus doing a character study for his next act. He will be missed.

  3. He touched my heart and soul…with his humor…I will never forget the times he lifted my whole being when I needed it so much…R.I.P. Dear one.

  4. I was devastated when I heard of his passing, and I am still grieving him today. There are so many comedians and actors in this world today, but he was the true genius! 🙁

  5. I don’t believe there ever was or ever will be anyone to match his comedic genius. I think his brilliant, explosive mind was more than he himself could bear. There have been few, many no other, “celebrities” whose death I’ve mourned like his. I never knew him personally, but wow could he reach through the screen and work his way into our hearts and psyches. Some weeks later and I still can’t believe he’s gone.

Would love to hear from you!
