No, no, no! R.I.P. Robin Williams

by Jessie Hawkins

Oscar-winning actor and comic Robin Williams died Monday at 63 of an apparent suicide, the Marin County Sheriff's Office confirmed.

Around 11:55 a.m. Monday, sheriff's officials said, a 911 call came in about a man who was unresponsive in his home in Tiburon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Williams "has been battling severe depression of late," his publicist Mara Buxbaum said. "This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

So sad! I remember being moved to tears in Patch Adams, & to hysterical laughter in Mrs. Doubtfire. I wish his family, friends and fans comfort during this time.
