Robin Williams passed away just a few hours ago. Our hearts are heavy and our eyes are filled with tears saying this. A wonderful actor that brightened the days of many people with his powerful words, actions, and stories is now gone. Countless people (including us) have enjoyed watching Robin Williams in his adventures, thanks to fantastic movies such as Bicentennial Man (a true masterpiece), Hook (another fabulous film), or Mrs. Doubtfire (incredibly entertaining).
Now, sadly, it is time to say goodbye to this wonderful and inspiring man. The following statement is from Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company:
"We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and a comedic genius, Robin will always be remembered for bringing some of the world’s favorite characters to life, from his zany alien on ABC's Mork & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney's Aladdin. He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of our family, and he will be sorely missed. We join Robin’s friends and fans everywhere in mourning, and offer our thoughts and condolences to his family during this difficult time."
So long, Robin. Thank you for all the laughs and great times you provided to us. We'll see you again soon.
