I think the whole world was shocked that a man that has made millions laugh and smile, took his own life because he was battling with his own demons yesterday. For someone like me and those older, we have grown up watching him on the big and small screens in roles such as Patch Adams, Jumanji, Aladdin and more recently Night At The Museum (with the third instalment due out in December).

An investigation into the cause and circumstances of the death is currently underway although it’s almost certain that the star overdosed on asphyxia. Robin had fought a battle with drugs and alcohol for a long time and ultimately, his depression became so extreme. “This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time,” his publicist said.

I think Robin Williams’ untimely death proves that everyone is fighting their own battle and that one really doesn’t have the right to judge anyone at all. As we mourn the loss of this great actor, I’ve found a clip on YouTube with some of his best moments. This is truly a great way to celebrate the life of a man who made us smile countless times. RIP Robin…
