Today family, friends, the city of San Francisco mourn the passing of beloved comedian: Robin Williams.

We had the honor of meeting Williams and share their pain. Williams was 63.

Investigators suspect "the death to be a suicide," according to a statement from the Marin County Sheriff's Department.

Mayor Edwin M. Lee today issued the following statement on the passing of beloved actor Robin Williams:

San Francisco mourns the profound loss of Robin Williams who inspired us with his comedy and art. His legacy has had a deep and inspiring impact on our City and on our residents.

His ties to San Francisco were deep, having found early success in our City’s comedy clubs with his popular stand-up routines and where he was destined to launch a successful career that included starring roles in classic television shows and big screen success including an Academy Award.

Despite his success, he has never forgotten San Francisco. He was a philanthropist who gave generously, and he was a friend of the City.

San Francisco is heartbroken by the tragic loss of Robin Williams who forever changed the world with laughter and joy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time of mourning.”

Your laughter, smile, humor, stellar performances will remain in our hearts always. Thank you for touching our lives.

This is our tribute to Mr. Williams:

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye - 1932
