Our hearts were broken by the news of your death. You were the brightest star among stars. For nearly four decades, you made us laugh and you made us cry. You shared your talent on television, in movies, hospitals, homeless shelters, and so many other venues. You entertained our soldiers and raised funds to make a difference in the lives of others.
You arrived in our lives as an alien. Your performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen. They came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. And over time, you ended up touching every element of our human spirit.
Thank you for the joy and inspiration you brought into our lives. You were a great man – a great artist – a great friend and a great father. Our lives are richer because you gave of your immeasurable talent and huge heart so generously.
You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.- Robin Williams
