Remembering Robin Williams
Placeholder Image
I am man enough to admit that I have cried more than once since the news broke that Robin Williams had died by what local officials said was suicide. My emotional reactions came not just from his death, but from the outpouring of love and grief by members of his family, especially his children; other actors he worked with; and journalists who were lucky enough to interview him. My first memory of Williams is likely very similar to others’ in my age group: when he leaped on to my TV screen in 1978 on an episode of “Happy Days” playing Mork from Ork.
