It really saddens me. It is a shame that someone, who brought so much joy & laughter to others, could not find a little for himself. R.I.P., Robin. You were the King of Improv ... So incredibly talented ... Gifted ... And compassionate. Your work with Comic Relief & other charities won't be forgotten. And you will be missed by millions.
When I was in high school, "Mork & Mindy" was one of my favorite shows. As for his films ... My favorites were: "Good Morning, Vietnam"; "Mrs. Doubtfire"; "Good Will Hunting"; and "The Dead Poet's Society". He also did good performances in "The Butler", "Night at the Museum" & "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" (ironically portraying U.S. Presidents in all three). I can honestly say I never saw him give a bad performance in anything. He was better in some than in others, but he never failed to deliver a good performance. There are few performers, in any genre, that you can say that about!
I don't think he had a good reason to die. He had a great life, people who loved and laughed at him, and a talent that can't be duplicated. He had no reason to be depressed. He got over his alcohol addiction, his raised three great kids, and is a Disney legend for his role in Aladdin. Not only that, but he didn't even approve of suicide to begin with. In the movie, World's Greatest Dad, he said quote, "If you are that depressed, reach out to someone. And remember, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” I know it was just in the script, but when he said it, he looked very sincere, as if he meant what he said. I honestly believe he had no reason to kill himself, no one does; this quote proves it. So he was depressed, I get depressed sometimes myself; I don't kill myself. I shake it off and move on. I'll miss him, but I won't accept his death as a reasonable death.
