My Grump: The world has lost a beautiful soul. RIP Robin Williams 1951-2014.

Like so many of you, I was shocked and saddened by the news of Robin Williams' tragic death by suicide. The Oscar-winning actor and comedian had been battling depression for many years. It was during a particularly low period that Robin hanged himself at his home in San Francisco, he was 63.

He leaves third wife Susan Schneider and three children from his previous marriages. My heart goes out to all of you.
Robin Williams
Robin was a one-of-a-kind, larger-than-life talent who gave so much to the world. And, in spite of his amazing talent and success, he was clearly in a lot of pain.
