I can’t tell you desperately I was looking forward to seeing “Mrs. Doubtfire 2” in theaters. When news broke in recent months that there was going to be sequel, I was ecstatic. Robin Williams has always been one of my favorite comedic actors and always will be. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch Robin Williams, Hugh Grant and Tom Arnold deliver a baby in Nine Months, I still laugh hysterically every time. I finally watched part of his movie “Jack”, but had to turn it off because my brother told me it had a sad ending. I couldn’t bear to watch anything happen to Robin at the end of the film, and sadly, today has been much worse. My mom and I had just left the post office when one of our friends told us that had Robin Williams had passed away. We were in shock, and my mom who is one of Robin Williams greatest fans started to weep. There has never been a time that my brother, mom or I haven’t reminded one another of when he is going to be on a late night program, or frankly just on television. I loved that he loved the San Francisco Giants, that he was true to his Northern California/bay area roots and from what I heard and have read via social media, just a decent guy who had no problem being greeted by his “biggest fans” and even posing for pictures with them. Robin Williams brought such joy to so many, he is already missed.
I thought I’d share some of my favorite TV moments with Robin Williams today and of course had to share such a happy picture of him embracing the San Francisco Giants mascot Lou Seal at AT&T Park, since he was such a big Giants fan.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family at this time. RIP Robin.
My favorite scene from “Nine Months”!
