Tribute to Robin Williams

He was Sweet LOVELY Man. He ran high voltage, Mind Always Going, It was who he was. I Know Well.. Many times from High There is Only Low. So Sad I was with him a little while ago we pretended to see Sharknados! Have known him Long time. Saw him open for Martin Mull once Pre Mork & Mindy

I feel utterly devastated by the death of Robin Williams to the diseases of addiction and depression. What a tremendous loss for us all.
Very sad
I can’t believe the news about Robin Williams. He gave so much to so many people. I’m heartbroken.
Very sad to hear about Robin Williams. He brought so much laughter and joy into this world. You will always be remembered as a legend. RIP
I am sick with grief, I can’t believe my lovely friend is gone. My heart goes out to his wife and his beloved children. He brought us so much joy and laughter.

Robin Williams, our fireball friend has left this planet. He was the most astonishingly funny, brilliant, profound and silly miracle of mind and spirit. A wondrous gift from the gods with a giant heart. We cannot believe he is gone. We salute you Robin, you are one of a kind
Once, years ago, Robin and I were walking on the Paramount lot near the set of our show “Mork and Mindy.” It was very late at night and we were talking and walking. Robin loved to stay up late and always had more energy than any person anywhere, in any room. I said to him that night, “Do you think we will ever grow up?” And he said without missing a beat, “I’m afraid if I ever grow up, I won’t be able to make a living.” Play was his passion and what drove him each day.
I will never forget the day I met him and he stood on his head in my office chair and pretended to drink a glass of water using his finger like a straw. The first season of “Mork and Mindy” I knew immediately that a three-camera format would not be enough to capture Robin and his genius talent. So I hired a fourth camera operator and he just followed Robin. Only Robin. Looking back, four cameras weren’t enough. I should have hired a fifth camera to follow him too.
Robin was hands-down a comedy genius and one of the most talented performers I have ever worked with in television or film. To lose him so young at the age of 63 is just a tragedy. I will forever be in awe of his timing, his talent and his pure and golden creativity.  He could make everybody happy, but himself. He was my friend and it is rare that you ever have a friend that is also a genius.
Robin Williams was like no other. To watch him create on the spot was a privilege to behold, Robin you are an angel now. Rest in peace.
When I met Robin in the Seventies, he was always on. It was always, 'Hey, big mama. Hey, baby.' He was very funny, but it was hard for him to just say, 'Hello, how are you?' Now he does that very well
 With John Ritter who died in 2003
I've never known a sweeter, brighter, more considerate person than Robin. Robin's commitment as an artist to lifting our mood and making us happy is compared to none. He loved us all and we loved him back
Joy bringer. we will miss you. Generosity.... So lucky to have known you
I am completely and totally devastated. What more can be said?
 with fellow comedian and long time dear friend Richard Belzer. When Richard was at Robin's son's engagement party, they started to talk that led Robin to make a guest appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on it's 200th episode, 'Authority'
with Trey Parker at the Tony Awards; in 2000, Robin performed South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut's song Blame Canada that was nominated for an Oscar. I can't think of anybody else who could pull that off...
 with Paul McCartney
with Nicole Kidman, Brittany Murphy and Elijah Wood

This is the saddest day ever! The kindest man I have ever met leaves us all today! Robin Williams my heart bleeds

Life is so very fragile. RIP Robin. You gave us all such joy.
Having struggled with depression and addiction myself Robin Williams death cuts even deeper for me.

If only he knew how much he was loved and always will be , he gave us all so much joy, the whole world would have loved to let him know how much that meant to all of us!

My father took me to see Robin Willaims do an improve set. Never seen anything like it, he was a spirit like no other. Will never forget him

Goodbye and God bless Robin Williams peace and love R

He was a great comic, an Oscar-winning actor but far more importantly — a truly, warm, giving, and generous guy. Anytime a child was nearby, he was only interested in making them smile and laugh. No ego at all. He was always there for the causes he cared for and always concerned about how everyone else was doing

Our household held glasses up high tonight for Robin Williams, every eye glistening.

What Terribly Sad news... Tragic... A Comic Genius... Robin.... We met briefly many moons ago...You made the World and I laugh, many times over... R.I.P. My Heart & Prayers go out to his Family & Friends... x

Although I didn't meet Robin, he & I shared our thoughts about Harry in Who is Harry Nilsson? doc. He will be missed by so so many especially his family & friends. It's a shame for those who didn't get a chance to see his of kind. RIP Robin.

Lost appetite because of a giant talent lost too soon. Robin Williams brought decades of joy. Tonight, tears.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Robin Williams family and friends. He was a TREMENDOUS comedic talent & WONDERFUL ACTOR! I loved his work! It is moments like these when you can truly say "gone too soon." He was a modern day legend & will be remembered for many, many years

Robin Williams was my John Lennon. Every comic & comedy club owner owes him. He defibrillated standup the rebirth was Robin. Sad 4 his kids

Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a little grayer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought.

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that's gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I'll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there's minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn't help the pain, but at least it's a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that. To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you've had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I've ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We'll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

There are no words strong enough to describe the love and respect I have for my father. The world will never be the same without him. I will miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him again.
