When I heard of the death of Robin Williams it took my breath away. I felt so saddened. Especially since it seems personal. He has a home here in St. George, and has been seen in the grocery store, riding his bicycle around town and at the movie theater. Even seen at the Walmart. But to tell you the truth I was not surprised. I knew his depression had gotten the best of him. It does that you know, at times it's just so hopeless you just can't function one more minute. My heart goes out to him. I know many people are shocked to hear that he had depression. How could someone that animated and funny have depression? Truthfully, the more funny, sarcastic and animated a person may seem is only the surface, that person's method of coping with an illness that is so debilitating. I know that I've been told many times that a person had no idea that I had depression because of my sense of humor. It's my way of coping and laughing at myself. I knew that Robin had many dark moments, and had problems with addiction at times in his life. All I can say is bless his heart, and I know our loving Heavenly Father will take him in his arms, and welcome him home.
We will all miss you Robin.
