Some very sad news today – Robin Williams has died, apparently by suicide

    Truly sad.  Here, this week, quite by coincidence, TV has been featuring his films.  He always came across as such a kind, gentle soul.  RIP.

    Yes he did appear to be kind and gentle in his theatrical appearances but he apparently has many personal demons.

    He truly had a gift.
    It is a great unfairness of life that someone who gave so much had to live in torment.
