My God, what a loss. It speaks to the profound depths that clinical depression can sink. How could one man that could make the world happy be incapable of making himself happy? My first reaction was disbelief then I got angry. Why did he leave us? Why did he leave his loving family? How can one fathom the immense psychic pain he must have endured to the point that he saw death as the only way out?

Not long ago a blogger named KLS made his presence on these pages known. He is a licensed therapist. I reached out to him to please inform us of how these acts of self destruction can reach such a level. I have yet to hear from him. Any insight he can lend us here would be most appreciated and hopefully comforting.

Evidently, Robin had demons. I know I at times have mine.

I am going to miss this comic genius. I know he is now at peace and his demons are denied access to him.

I loved him as did many others.

We have to make mental illness a part of our national conversation. We must remove the stigma. We all get sick in various parts of our bodies.

Our brain is our most important organ. We've got to bring it's ills into the discussion.

Rest in Peace Robin. You were loved.

Robin will truly be missed. One of my favorite shows growing up was Mark and Mindy-he was hilarious. My husband dedicated this song to his fans on face-book and they truly enjoyed it.

Your husband knows his songs and nailed it with this one form Smokey. Tears of a Clown kinda says it all. Thank you.

We do have to remove the stigma. There is no shame in asking for and getting help.

Is it just me, or do the days seem to go by faster and faster? It seems Andy Rooney, now deceased humorous curmudgeon of 60 minutes News Show, offered up that life is like a roll of toilet paper, real slow at first than fast near the end. Anyway, I ...

Zig Zag Zell is staying true to form. Yes, this is the man who gave the keynote speech for the Democratic Party Convention that nominated Bill Clinton, and also gave the keynote speech for George W. Bush at the Republican convention. However, on Sebe's behalf, I gratefully accept Zell's endorsement ...
