Farewell Robin

I am so sorry to hear the news that Robin Williams has been found dead of an apparent suicide.  What a tragedy.  

I remember when he first appeared on TV, on "Happy Days" and then "Mork and Mindy".
I was a teenager and I didn't always understand what he was talking about.  He was funny and disturbing and like nothing we had ever seen before, much like the alien character he was portraying.  I liked him but I found the manic energy hard to take in large quantities.

Then we were treated to the wonders of his dramatic talents in movies like "Dead Poets Society" and "Good Will Hunting" and I was completely hooked.
I'm sorry we have to lose him so soon, he will be truly missed.
