You Ain’t Never Had a Friend Like Me

Robin Williams(Source: http://parade.com/154817/dotsonrader/robin-williams-on-returning-to-tv-getting-sober-and-downsizing-in-his-60s/)

We all have different memories, different experiences involving Robin Williams. What unites us is the man himself because no matter what he was involved in, it was undeniably his handiwork. Let’s take some time to appreciate ten artists who utilized their talent to preserve the likeness and/or career of Robin Williams, a bright light gone from this world far too soon.

It is tragic and beyond comprehension that Robin Williams was suffering such darkness, but what a gift that he never failed to make his audience smile and laugh. He had talent off the richter scale and a career that went beyond success. You know what touches my heart the most? The legacy he left behind as a person. How people are remembered posthumous speaks volumes.

If you need help, speak up!

The loss is a hard pill to swallow one year later, a tragedy that feels as though it happened this week. I can’t even see a picture without crying! But, Robin made me smile and laugh while he was alive, and in tribute to him, I don’t want to stop. Watch the following 2 videos and preserve Robin’s presence with laughter:
