Still shocked about the news of Robin Williams. Last night, I just sat in my bedroom and wept for him. It still makes me teary-eyed, someone who was so full of life and brought so much joy and laughter to others.
I read an article that Christopher Reeve and Williams attended acting school together in the early seventies. They stayed friends throughout the years. When the tragic horse-riding accident made Reeve a quadriplegic, Williams visited him in the hospital, BUT he pretended to be a Russian doctor who was there to perform a COLONOSCOPY. Lol, Reeve said it was the first time he'd laughed since the accident.
The ability to make others happy with the joy of laughter was his gift. So glad he shared it with us. Of all the movies I've seen with Robin Williams, this one is my favorite. When I'm feeling blue, this is my go to flick, because I always know I'm gonna crack up all the way through it.

Oh Robin Williams, you were LOVED, and I sure miss you. What a loss.
