I remember like it was yesterday, bouncing around the couches in my family room pretending to be Peter Pan. When I wasn’t attempting to fly from one ottoman to the next, I was glued to the TV, cheering on Peter and the Lost Boys.
Hook is one of my favorite movies and Robin Williams will forever be one of my favorite actors.
However, the man who made the world laugh, appeared to be fighting daemons of his own.
Williams, who has been suffering from severe depression, was found dead from an apparent suicide Monday. He was 63-years-old.
Like me, millions of fans are sharing their favorite Robin Williams memories, movies and quotes today.
President Obama paid tribute to the actor in a statement, “Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between,” Obama’s statement read.
He touched every demographic with his talent and made us smile.
