So many people have spoken out about Robin Williams, but I was particularly touched by the words of the woman who knew him best - his wife, Susan Schneider.

The statement she released shows wisdom through grief. Please read Susan's beautiful words for Robin:

This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief.
As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.

  Robin Williams made us laugh, over and over again.

Much as I hope that Robin Williams' suicide will help to increase awareness of mental health issues, his wife is absolutely right.

Let's remember Robin Williams how those closest to him will - with countless moments of joy and laughter.
