No One Made Him Laugh.

Robin Williams, 1951-2014

Born July 21, 1951 Robin William began this sixty-three year journey through what we call life. Three marriages, three children, billions of fans still was enough happiness in his life to keep him here.

I have many favorites of Robin Williams, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam, Garp, Flubber, just to name a few. My all-time favorite; "Mrs. Doubtfire", I have watched that movie with every one of my seven grandchildren, and have enjoyed it every time.

During the late 70"s early 80"s Mr. Williams became addicted to cocaine until the death of a causal friend John Belushi with the birth of his son Zak. He fell of the wagon in 2003 he began drinking.

He said in an interview seven years later - "No. Cocaine - paranoid and impotent, what fun. There was no bit of me thinking, ooh, let's go back to that. Useless conversations until midnight, waking up at dawn feeling like a vampire on a day pass. No"

Robin Williams was a great philanthropist, involved in many great charities, events, and organizations. In 1986, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal and Robin Williams founded Comic Relief USA on an annual HBO television benefit devoted to the homeless, raising 80 million dollars as of 2014. He supported literacy, women's rights, and the USO, and a charity called Children's Promise. Williams and second wife Marsha founded Windfall Foundation. Williams donated all proceeds of his "Weapons of Self Destruction" a Christchurch performance to help rebuild the New Zealand City.

The death of Robin Williams was a shock to the entire nation. You never know where someone's heart is at, even when you live with them every day. So tell that loved one you see everyday how much you love them, for you never know just how close to suicide the really are. Everyone whom looks happy isn't always happy.
