I am shocked as well. I grew up with him and his characters! Very sad :(

Anyway, sad that he ended his own live like this. I've got good memories of his film "Moscow on the Hudson". And strangely enough of his appearance on the graham Norton show (UK, late night comedy so not the cleanest language) where you can see him go from his public persona doing a talkshow to an actor enjoying hanging out with fellow actors.

This is a terrible loss. You hate to see anybody go, but especially not like this. I know it is dumb but I'll always remember him from Jumanji (sp?)Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.
You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

No one ever made me laugh as hard as he did, his stand up routines always left me in tears....
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Terribly sad news, it does seem the most brilliant artists suffer with crushing periods of depression. I grew up watching him on t.v. then seeing him in movies....:(_______________________________________________

Just was reading, his relapse was in 2006 (8 years ago) and he had done rehab for it
Then saw this
"Then, in 2009, Williams underwent open-heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic to replace two valves and regulate his heartbeat. According to the clinic, major heart surgery often leaves patients with depression, which can sometimes "prevent you from leading a normal life."
Especially susceptible, the clinic says, are patients who experience high levels of stress or life transitions — which certainly describes the twice-divorced, addicted, lone-man-on-a-tightrope performer named Robin Williams.
Williams returned to rehab last month — this time, he said, not because he'd relapsed again, but because he wanted to make sure his recovery stuck."

As someone who suffers with depression, and who loved Robin, this hit me really hard
