"What will always be remembered about Robin Williams, perhaps even more than his comic genius, extraordinary talent, and astounding intellect, was his huge heart, his tremendous kindness, generosity, and compassion as an acting partner, colleague, and fellow traveler in a difficult world. Robin was a world treasure. As we mourn his tragic death, we must remember him for the great waves of laughter that he was able to derive from us, how his humor and insights -- though they came from a place of pain and uncertainty -- connected us and reminded us of how flawed and fragile ... how human we are ... how we are capable of moments of inspired transcendence and others of unspeakable despair.”
