“Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me. If you can only remember me with tears, then don’t.
Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all.”—Anonymous

With over 100 cedits to his career, from aliens and androids to animation as well as drama to drag, Robin Williams was truly one of the most accomplished performers in multiple genres including Television, Film, Stand-up, Stage and even Shakespeare. A man who so enjoyed the work, that he even accepted roles that were unaccredited, well into his success, simply because he loved it. The four time Golden Globe, two time Grammy winner received a Daytime EMMY nominated for his voice work as the Genie in “Great Minds Think for Themselves,” immediately following the completion of his Oscar winning role in “Good Will Hunting.” A man whose career achievements were only rivaled by his humanitarian efforts, he lent his considerably influential position and voice to help and educate others on subjects from hunger to homelessness and health. Even in death, Williams has brought shone a considerable spotlight on the subject of depression and suicide.
