Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child — Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid,” Robin‘s wife Susan Schneider said in a statement (via Deadline).

“Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.

‘Aladdin’ Cast – Robbin Williams Tribute

Late Night Hosts Conan O'Brien & Seth Meyers Honor Robin Williams (Video)

Conan O’Brien and Seth Meyers both paid tribute to the late Robin Williams on their respective shows Conan and Late Night with Seth Meyers last night.

Conan told a funny story about how Robin cheered him up during his dark days after taking over the Tonight Show for a very brief period.

“Just as a quick example of what he was like, a bunch of years ago…I went through, publicly, a kind of bump in the road and I was feeling a little low. Out of the blue, Robin Williams buys me a bicycle. It sounds like a silly thing. He was the first person to buy me a bicycle since my parents bought me a bicycle—when I was 35. But I was kind of low and Robin loved to ride, and I loved to ride, and he bought me a bicycle,” Conan said.

“But this is so Robin Williams: he bought me this bicycle and he had it delivered to my house and it was the most absurd bicycle you’ve ever seen…it was bright orange and it was bright green and it had shamrocks on it. So, I called Robin up to just say, ‘Who does that?’ I didn’t know him well enough to justify this kind of [gift]. So, I called him up and I just said, ‘Robin, I’m floored by this bike.’ And all he would say is, ‘Well, I know you ride and I know you would use it. Does it look ridiculous? Does it really look ridiculous?’ I said, ‘Yeah,’ and he went, ‘Good. Do you really look stupid riding it?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna look really stupid.’ He’s like, ‘Well, then that’s good then,’” he concluded.

Seth discussed depression and the need to raise more awareness.

“The saddest part of this is Robin was battling depression, and if there’s anything we can do to honor his memory, I would hope it would be to use this opportunity to educate us more about this terrible affliction. We just want to say that we miss Robin, but we’re also very lucky to have had him at all,” Seth said.
