Today, I would like to dedicate a post to a wonderful man. Robin Williams.
I have thought about doing this post for the last few days, since I heard of Robins passing, but haven't quite figured out what to say.
Robin Williams was a brilliant actor, and comedian.
He was a man of a thousand voices.
I grew up watching his movies, and I feel as if I grew up with him. His passing hit me harder then I would have expected. This man dedicated his whole life to making people smile, making people laugh.
And now he's gone . . .
The world just got less funny.
I know Robin's wish, would be for people to find some type of humor in his death, however I cannot.
I can remember the humor of his personality. I can remember the humor of his movies.
And I can remember the humor that was, Robin Williams.
My fondest memory and one of my favorite movies of all time is :
Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire
I remember watching this movie over a thousand times when I was a child, and still a few times when I would see it on t.v as an adult!
I know right now the whole world is remembering his movies, and his life, however here is something you may not know.
Robin Williams was not just an actor.
He was an animal lover.
He was an animal activist as well.
He was strong on promoting humane treatment of all animals.
Robin even took on the vegan lifestyle.
He refused to wear anything made from animals, including leather, furs, and wool.
Robin shared his life with 2 dogs. Leonard, who is a pug which Robin adopted from a shelter in New York.
And a Boston Terrier named Verna Pearl, who was his assistants dog, but became attached to him quicker then he could wag a tail at!

Robin, you are sorely missed.
You are free to make the angels laugh their feathers off!
"Your only given one little spark of madness.
You mustn't lose it"
See you tomorrow.
"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone.
The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel alone."
For those of you interested in watching. I found this beautiful video of Robin Williams bonding with a sign language Gorilla named KoKo. They have the most adorable tickle fight!
