His suicide caught me out of nowhere while I was cooking yesterday. I didn't want to believe it, but I had to accept the facts and oh, how it hurt. He filled my (and many people's) childhood with great movies like Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Flubber, Jumanji, and Popeye. He has this energy that seeps out of the screen and sits right next to us. Not trying to sound corny or spiritual, but you gotta admit that his characters were always the ones you felt closest to.
Suicide is something that I feel is in a persons destiny already. It's not something that anyone can just do, and I hope he found the peace that he was searching for. Who cares if he was against suicide? He's just a person and we can't judge him for going against his own word (like many of us have). To me, he's not in "hell"; if he truly believed that there was something better after death, then I know he finally found it.
I want to thank him for making me a happy child. Thank you for making me laugh, cry, and the fun memories to think back on.♡
