    that megawatt smile they paused on...Wow. It just gets you to know you don't get to see that smile anymore. RIP, Mr. Williams. Respects to the Williams family.

    How about you come out and say he killed himself. He didn’t just die.

    its the people who joke the most and laugh the most who, most often than not, need help the most. nowadays, and for sure you havs a friend like this, we must take some time periodically to seriously ask about the actual well-being of our funny friend and to be prepared to listen honestly and be there. But the sad truth is, once we label a person as the funny guy or class clown in our social group, we forget that that person has a multi-dimensional personality with complex thoughts and feelings inside them too.

    I have not since seen one of his movies and even now I still don't know when I ever will. What a gut punch to that kid in me.

    He didn't "die" Dave ...that makes it sound like he had a disease or was killed in a car crash … he killed himself. See the difference? ...didn't think so.

    I remember the night he died. I'm irish, we're usually 5-7 hours ahead of the USA time wise. Woke up In the middle of the night to take a leak and couldn't get back to sleep. Flicked through Facebook on my phone. One of my American friends posted a report on Robin Williams passing. Bullshit I thought, it's a death hoax, wouldn't have been the first one I've seen. I went to Google and looked it up to see if it was fake. Sadly I was wrong. I stayed awake until morning watching the tributes and reports coming in. I was so sad. I loved Robin Williams work, still do. May his memory ever be honoured.

    "I stood between Richard Pryor and Robin Williams...and a picture was taken of us." Bless you Letterman.

    Robin Williams was very torn down by divorce. Look it up. Alimony and the favoritism of women by divorce court broke him down tremendously.

    The fact he admits he didn't know about him suffering makes this tribute even greater.

    Strange to see the pop culture icons of my childhood to adult years pass away, Belushi passed away when I was a little boy and I still never really accepted that one. Some people it doesn't feel right when they go.

    Robin, as the voice and caricature face of Genie, in the Alladin cartoon, gave my son and I so many laughs throughout the years. Still does. Irreplaceable!!!

    I never thought Robin Williams was funny espically in the old days when he was a coke head, but he got clean and was a very good actor in a lot of movies and funny as well. To bad he's gone now. RIP

    Does anyone still buy this drivel?
    Robin is alive and well, living life as the biological female she was born as.
    Just like Prince, who is living in plain b sight, as the ugly sister.
    Mocking and deceiving the dumb masses. 💯💥😒

    Can't believe it's been 5 years sense my favorite Comedian has passed. When I first heard He died. I was like. comedy is dead. B/c he died. It's so tragic on how he died. At least his moments an his films will live forever. My favorite movie of him is Aladdin. When he voiced the Genie.

    what a fine tribute to a man who so deserved such recognition. i just wish that David Letterman would treat everybody with such respect, even if he might disagree with them politically. think of how utterly cruel he has been toward people like Sarah Palin and her handicapped son

    People. Please note that mental health is a huge issue, and can literally impact anyone!
    Someone as beloved, kind, and funny as Robin. And nobody even knew.
    I dont know of a single person who did not like him, except for himself.

    I think about his suicide alot. My dad died of Lewy Body Disease and it is horrible. The paranoia and hallucinations are terrible. I think Robin did not want his family to suffer with him and ended his life. I am really torn since suicide can end u up in hell.

    It's funny to think how much someone I don't know and never met is a huge part of my life and childhood. Robin was one of the few that transcended celebrity into icon. If there was a Mount Rushmore of Comedians, Robin would be chiseled first.Once in a lifetime gem and he is missed

    I wouldn't wish Depression and Anxiety on anyone..... it's a constant losing battle within yourself that feels like you're drowning in thoughts..... and it does not discriminate.....
