Robin Williams

"We never expect to hear about death. We never wake up knowing someone will have died today. As we busy ourselves with all of the lovely distractions that life offers us... we push death away... like some unwanted vegetable on the dinner plate. But every once in a while, death enters our periphery and reminds us that it's still there. Not to scare us... not to terrorize us... only to remind us to cherish each bite of the meal put before us. Like it or not we will be made to eat our vegetables. My deepest gratitude for the man who reminded us to play with our food. Au revoir, Robin Williams." - Shane Koyczan, 12/8/14.

Bit of a shocker that one....was watching The Butler last night and he featured in the movie. Worth a watch.

Old Pa. Talk about a coincidence. We were watching The Butler on DVD last night too, then checked the BBC website before going to bed and read the dreadful news.
