Remember The Laughter - Robin Williams

by Christina Rowsell
The Brighter Side

Remember the laughter.  And remember the man who made us laugh.  Robin Williams.  With sadness we all mourn the passing of a man with a remarkable talent of making people laugh, smile and forget about their problems.  Although he had many struggles with his own Mental Health issues I only hope that he also found those things in life that made him smile, if only for a moment.

Williams was very open about his own struggles with depression and addiction.  I had the opportunity to see Robin do his stand up in Calgary when he took part in a fund-raising event for the Owen Hart Foundation at the Jubilee Auditorium December 2012.  He was everything I expected him to be.  Funny, crazy and lovable.  You could tell, even from the bleacher seats, this man gives his whole heart in everything he does.

His LONG list of credits is a testament to the tireless work he did to bring his talents the big screen.  We all have our favourite movie(s) that Robin Williams shared with us.  My list includes, Good Morning Vietnam, Aladin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Bird Cage, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, and my favourite Patch Adams.  There are SO many more.

He will be missed.  But most of all he will be remembered for the laughter he gave to all of us.  Remember the laughter, as we remember the man that made us laugh ~ Robin Williams July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014.  Rest in Peace.
