It has been a year since the world lost the comedic brilliance known as Robin Williams.
Even without personally knowing him, many claim that just his existence has helped them in times of need. As fans, we loved him, cherished him and mourned him. But to have known him and lose him, is unfathomable; which is what makes this touching tribute to the legend by him on-screen daughter from the short-lives TV Show "The Crazy Ones", is so touching and beautiful:
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded" #Emerson You succeeded RW #RobinWilliams
Williams enjoyed a wide range of fans including everyone between John Stamos and Margaret Cho, both of whom paid tribute to WIlliams, who is well known for his benevolence and his cheerfulness. While Stamos tweeted, ""Dear money, send mom" Robin Williams. The first autograph I ever got. You are missed Robin. #RobinWilliams", Cho wrote, "I miss Robin so much. #berobin".
Meanwhile, novelist Dan Spencer, who was a close personal friend of WIlliams wrote a touching tribute on Medium, titled "Life Lessons from Robin Williams: The simple things my friend taught me." In the beaufitul piece Spencer calls him "generous, humble, gentle and kind".
