I met him when I was 13 and a huge fan and he was so kind and I watched him be kind to every fan i ever saw him with...And with other actors he was so generous and brilliant. He made everyone feel special and equal around him even though he was the genius...His heart was so big and even if you didn't know him, what he gave everyone was that same spirit in his work, so we all felt it...His impact on the world was so positive. He did so much good for people. He made me and so many people laugh so hard for a very long time. And because they don't really tweet, this message represents all the Stillers (Jerry, Anne and Amy) who Robin was a great friend to. Xxxxx"
