Tribute to my great friend Robin Williams August 12 2014, 0 Comments
My friend, it's sad to hear of your passing, it was an honour and privilege to have known you and we sure had a lot of laughs together.
I still remember the first time we met, it feels like yesterday but we have both grown up a little more since then, our times together were always full of laughs, you were a great person.
Our first time in becoming great friends was when you had just finished filming Jumangi, I thought you had signed me a copy of the book Jumangi but when I opened it up it was the script of your entire movie, I will always treasure that my friend and will show it to my boys too.
Another great memory for me was when we met in San Francisco, a catch up that was meant to be 30 minutes but we ended up laughing and talking for over 2 hours.
You then surprised me in London when you were part of my tv show "This is your life" both in the UK and in New Zealand with another great friend of mine, Sir Paul Holmes, we had a lot of great times together so I thank you for each of them, thanks for all the great memories my friend.
I liked the "what you see is what you get" about you, you made me laugh even when you weren't even trying too, you were a warm, caring man and funny as hell!
Our thoughts are with your family and friends at this sad time and there is a world of us that will miss you my friend, you have left a presence of laughter and happiness upon the lives of many. Till we meet again for more laughs, your friends Jonah and Nadene Lomu.
