    First times I saw Robin was those amazing walk ons he did on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. What a truly talented person! There are no words..

    You were and always will be a true legend. You made us laugh for many years, and now we cry. So sorry that you had to leave us. I hope you have found the peace that that you couldn’t find here. May you forever rest in the loving arms of our Lord forever. You are truly, truly missed. 😥

    I am an alcoholic sober 29 years now. I understand, somewhat, the emotional depths a sober alcoholic can get to and hope that, as it has for me, this tragic loss can remind us that this is a disease of loneliness and when we are in trouble we must reach out and ask for help. Bring the Body….The Mind will Follow. God’s Speed Robin. You are missed. 😦

    My favorite thing about Robin was his improve. I recently watched a video from when he was entertaining our troops. When all of a sudden all the solider’s stopped watching him and turned around for revelry. He didn’t miss a beat. And stood on the stage silent as the process was continued. As soon as it was over he did what Robin did best, he fell right into joking about how he had never had an entire audience turn their backs on him. The fact that he gave his time and talents to entertain our soldiers really impressed me. My heart aches to think of his final hours and what sort of torment he must have felt to choose to end his life. I hope that he is now entertaining on a much bigger stage in Heaven.
