President Barack Obama also offered his condolences in a sweet statement, saying "Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien - but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most - from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin's family, his friends and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams."

"Mork & Mindy" costar Pam Dawber added "I am completely and totally devastated. What more can be said?"

And Sarah Michelle Gellar, who just starred alongside him on CBS' "The Crazy Ones," released a statement of her own. "This is without question, the hardest few words I have ever tried to write. My life is a better place because I knew Robin Williams. To my children he was 'Uncle Robin', to everyone he worked with, he was the best boss anyone had ever known, and to me he was not just an inspiration but he was the Father I had always dreamed of having."
