The Robin Williams tribute offered by Billy Crystal will be tough for fans watching the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards airing on Monday night. Not because the moment won’t be special, but it will bring a sense of finality as the Primetime Emmys 2014: In Memoriam segment is always emotional. According to Hollywood Life on Monday, Billy Crystal will present an emotional tribute to Robin Williams

The death of Robin Williams happened two weeks ago and shocked the world. The comedian was beloved by young and old and touched the hearts of many. The choice of Billy Crystal coming on stage to offer a few words seemed so appropriate even though it will break the hearts of many people to see Williams’ picture once again. Even with all the humor the late actor offered, nobody was prepared for the pain that came with the announcement of his passing.

This year several prominent actors and actresses have died leaving a huge hole in Hollywood. While Robin Williams has been confirmed in the Primetime Emmys 2014 In Memoriam segment other late entertainers are yet to be announced. As with any In Memoriam segment, there seems to be so many people who have touched the lives of viewers around the world and not enough time to reflect.

So how will the Robin Williams tribute reflect on the entertainer? Sources at the Emmys have confirmed this will be a wonderful look at the life and impact the comedian and actor made on the world. Robin Williams isn't with the world in body, but his work is forever captured on film. And the laughs that he offered up the world can still be heard.
