His addiction he had gotten over before all of this. His death was by suicide from depression, anxiety, and early state Parkinson's Disease diagnosis. Other sites made the correction. Not that it matters, since he is gone. Sad to even think that. He brought so much laughter to my tears and pain/ sufferings. Prayed the Pieta prayer book prayer for his soul and know he's made it to the arms of Jesus!!! Now your tears are laughter, and your finally at peace Robin Williams!!
