There are some actors and actresses you grow up with that you gain such a familiarity with their work that you can recite their lines back, word for word. One of those brilliant actors for many fans was Robin Williams. From his iconic roles as Popeye, Peter Pan, Mork from Mork & Mindy, to Mrs. Doubtfire, Genie, and his most recent TV work on "The Crazy Ones," Williams had an incredible filmography that will carry on for years.

Robin Williams' comedic timing was genius and you could only admire his dedication in throwing his body and his all into each and every skit, scene, interview, and stand-up routine. His stand-up, theatre, TV, Film, and charity work made him one of the most recognized names in Hollywood over the past 40 years.

Sadly, Williams was reported dead today of an apparent suicide due to a battle with severe depression. It just goes to show that you never really know what's going on in someone's life, and you have to appreciate and cherish every moment. I, personally, will miss the laughter Williams could incite. 

R.I.P. Mr. Williams
