Death is not a subject I am able to cope with very well still.
Although I did not personally know Robin Williams, he touched my life so often. His early death is tragic and a huge loss that will forever be felt.
Departed comrade! Thou, redeemed from pain
Shall sleep the sleep that kings desire in vain:
Not thine the sense of loss
But lo, for us the void
That never shall be filled again.
Not thine but ours the grief.
All pain is fled from thee.
And we are weeping in thy stead;
Tears for the mourners who are left behind
Peace everlasting for the quiet dead.
Lucretius, Roman epic poet and philosopher (ca 94 – 55BC)
Hold those you love because none of us know when the end will be for us or them.
Goodbye Robin Williams.
I will miss you.
