Everything that I wanted to say about the death of Robin Williams has been said, and so eloquently by many. How sad that he is gone and that he was in so much pain. In mourning, I want to see all his movies, have a Robin Williams marathon. It will take a long time to get through such a huge and wide-ranging body of work.
