So many wonderful memories...


For all the laughs and tears, for lending your voice to so many beloved and unforgettable characters that both me and my children have grown up on, for life lessons from Captain, my Captain and Teddy Roosevelt, for learning how to fly, for silliness and playfulness at every age, and for the most perfect Popeye ever. We'll never forget you...

Rest in peace, Robin Williams.
(July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014)

  1. It's strange how the death of someone I don't know personally affects me. When I woke up this morning, this was the first thing I read and it made me sad. It's strange to see how a man who was always so funny and seemed so sweet, was battling with depression and eventually had to give up :( Very tragic and how horrible for his family.

  4. :( I'm still reeling from this news. It's surprising how the death of someone you've never met can affect you so deeply, but it's like you say - Robin was a huge part of my childhood so this news is very upsetting indeed.

  5. What a lovely post. Every time I see a picture of him I realize all over again, and can't believe it. That he brought such joy to so many people and yet dealt with such darkness is a tragedy.

    Beautiful post. I've never shed a tear for any actor before, but I did for him. O Captain, my captain! You ain't never had a friend like me... :(
