No one has made me laugh more than this man.
 And no one ever will.
Or does that terrible state of emptiness and misery persist into the afterlife making it a bleak extension of this existence?-a kind of punishment or hell for not conquering the problem in the here and now? I don't know. Believing as I do that suicide is self-murder and morally wrong, and we should endure what we suffer 'til our last dying breath, I fear the worst for Robin Williams' soul-while hoping for the best. Hoping that Robin found peace and solace at last-as his huge and varied talent immensely entertained me for many years making me laugh and weep and sometimes think. Now it's gone into the great beyond with a treasure trove of works and fond memories left behind. So long Robin Williams. I'm one of millions who will never forget you, always adore you, ever be a fan.


    1. I hear you AJ. Life and death are complicated things. But the fight for life is something almost everyone has. I’m watching someone fight for theirs as I type this. It is such a natural thing to hold on to this world. If I had any hope for Mr. Williams it would be the same hope I have for everyone. That they have taken Christ in to their lives and that they realize that everything is not here but beyond. Earthly life is a journey to the beyond. Some people like the atheist Jhutfedx may not believe that but it is true.

  2. Robin Williams depression didn’t survive his death. Know why? Because there is no afterlife. THIS IS IT. When you die there’s no happiness. No depression. NOTHING.

        1. In other words , your life is worth no more than a cockroach, or fungus.
          How sad for you. If all I had to look forward to is the things of this life, the pains, and ups and downs wouldn’t be worth it. I truly feel sorry for you, to think you think no more of yourself than the lowest form of life!

        2. What arrogance! Just becasue you may not have a soul doesn’t mean that I or others lack one. Just because you’re unensouled. Just because you’re souless. Just because you’re not a soul man doesn’t mean that I am.

  3. A beautiful eulogy Apollo. I was a fan also of Robin Williams.
    I feel really bad that he committed suicide. His last action on earth was committing murder. The murder of himself. Such a shame.

    1. Beautiful eulogy indeed. And the philosphical part got me thinking . Always I thought that Williams’ high strung but entertaining demeanor could be exacting a big toll out of him. Like he had this huge, inner, vacuous hole inside that he was desperately trying to fill with his creative, humorous talents and drugs. Perhaps the deep, inner spiritual void was left empty. I think Apollo nailed it in suggesting that Williams’ suicide solved nothing. He took his inner void with him to the next life.

      Then again none of us will be completely fulfilled in this life

    2. Robin Williams’ last act wasn’t comic or tragic. As Nanna says it was “murder.” I’m sorry he’s dead but I have little respect for those who take the precious gift that God gave them, I don’t care how “bad” life seems to be.

      I’ve seen some amazing people fight for life until their last breath. I’m watching more than one person fight that fight right now. It always puzzles me when someone offs themselves.

  4. Some of Robin William’s jokes …

    Do you think God gets stoned? I think so . . . look at the platypus.

    Politics: “Poli” a Latin word meaning “many”; and “tics” meaning “bloodsucking creatures”.

    We Americans, we’re a simple people . . . but p*ss us off, and we’ll bomb your cities.

    The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying, ‘Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.’ She’s got a baseball bat and yelling, ‘You want a piece of me?’

    And some people say Jesus wasn’t Jewish. Of COURSE he was Jewish! 30 years old, single, lives with his parents, come on! He works in his father’s business, his mom thought he was God’s gift, he’s Jewish! Give it up!

    I was once on a German talk show, and this woman said to me, “Mr. Williams, why do you think there is not so much comedy in Germany?” And I said, “Did you ever think you killed all the funny people?”

  5. International Business Times writer Toyin Owoseje writes:

    “Different Strokes star Todd Bridges has branded Robin Williams’selfish’ after the Oscar-winning actor and comedian was found dead in an apparent suicide.

    Bridges, a 49-year-old former child star who rose to fame playing Willis Jackson in the 80s sitcom, made the controversial statement just minutes after news broke of Williams’ tragic demise.

    Speaking to TMZ, Bridges hinted that like Williams, he had also struggled with depression but chose not to take the easy “way out.”

    “You don’t think that my life has been hell and I’ve had so many ups and downs now? If I did that [commit suicide], what am I showing my children [is] that when it gets tough, that’s the way out.”

    He went on to suggest Williams could have found strength in religion.”

    Williams, a great talent who I loved, had no religion or God in his life to fill the emptiness Apollo speaks of. If he did he’d still be alive sharing his gifts with us. I pray that he finds God in the after world.

  6. My wife suffers from depression (and by association so do I). We’ve had numerous scares over the past 18 years but with support she is handling things fine lately. I keep reminding in subtle ways about taking her medication and I go with her to her shrink. I tend to notice the little things that she doesn’t realize she does and by telling the shrink we can address them as needed. I used to think mental illness was a crock but not anymore. I now believe that it is sometimes worse than a physical one (and not just for the one that has it, but their family also).

    1. I’ve seen depression do it’s nightmarish work on people. Prayers up for you and your wife’s struggles. No one can ever know of the depths of depression or what it’s like to see a loved one go through unless they experience it directly.

  7. Very fun man and it’s a sad loss. I loved him on TV and in the movies. He could switch from comedy to drama. His live shows? Take or leave. He was funny, but he could be filthy when he didn’t have to be, and he wasn’t all that funny when he was filthy. RIP Robin Williams; and may the filth in your soul be purged clean in purgatory.

  8. Beautifully written piece on Robin Williams. He brought more hilarity into my life than any comic genius out there past and present. Goodbye Rockin Robin. Rest in peace

  9. Okay. Williams was a great, very great talent. But do we have to turn his death into a national media event? All this coverage is way over the top.

    1. It’s nothing new. When Mark Twain died in 1910 it was national (and international news).Rudolph Valentino’s early death was a huge news story. So was Carole Lombard’s.
