    Even if he could financially afford it, mentally it was probably taking a toll on him. Reality is what you see and not always what's actually happening. Years of drugs, ex wives and God only knows what else he was dealing with was more then he could cope with. I hope he found peace from his demons.

    I enjoyed his work so I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. It's even sadder to hear about all the people who loved him and his work and yet he felt so alone that he saw suicide as his only escape from a haunted life.

    Not to urinate in anyone's grave but that's why I'm glad I live a simple life. Honestly, it seems the more money/success/fame you have, the more issues people seem to have. It just seems that everyone in Hollywood/ show business has these demons or drug/alcohol issues.

    I'm just happy being me and living the life I live.

    The news today says that Williams was diagnosed in the the early stages of Parkinson's disease. That explains his acting in this season's TV show.
    It was more than he wanted to deal with.

    Like my best friends dad. He died of a heart attack, but an autopsy showed advanced pancreatic cancer. He was hiding it from everyone with pain meds.
