    “Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child — Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid.

    Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.

    Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.

    It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid.”

    She is making excuses for his suicide? Just STFU and grieve privately.

    I totally get RW fatigue, but this celebrity death has impacted me more than any in my lifetime. OK, his kind of comedy didn't necessarily age well, but for a time, he was one of the funniest fuckers in the world. A raw force of nature. If you don't think that has monumental cache in this society, you're just being ridiculous.

    What he did with the success he earned with his immense talent is humbling. Paying peoples' medical bills, selflessly encouraging and making genuine time for thousands of strangers and novices in show biz, creating charitable causes that will long outlive his kids.... holy fuck!

    His ability to inspire and spread humanitarian goodwill, frankly, makes him a saint. The world lost a saint and the kind of person the planet needs more of.

    Sorry that it's inconvenient, but it's kind of a big deal.

    It's ironic; I forgot he played the guy who discovered the benefits of that drug with Parkinson's patients in Awakenings.

    We needs more Gaza cease-fire stories to ignore!
