R.I.P.: Robin Williams
I write this with a heavy heart ...
I had the great pleasure of being an acquaintance of Robin Williams ...for nearly two years I 'hung out' with Robin practically every week at a theater near his home along with many other stand-up comics.
I cherish the fleeting moments of rip roaring laughter we all shared ...the loss is a blow to the global public but especially devastating for the San Francisco comedy community.
The last time I saw Robin was this past May and he asked me how I was doing ...that was Robin's essence ...he cared for us and wanted us to be okay ... a generous soul ... a decent human ... an unparallelled talent.
Robin left this realm ...we who remain mourn him and our great loss ...but our memories we cherish until we meet again.
