I have collected several of these tributes – the ones I believe are the most touching. I have always loved Robin Williams and his gift for making others laugh, so hearing about his death broke my heart.
But as the Academy puts it:

Robin Williams. The world just won't be the same without the magic, inspiration and laughter you brought to us all. You will be very missed.
