Mara Wilson is Still Processing This, Just Like the Rest of Us

Mara Wilson was the first "Mrs. Doubtfire" co-star to initially react to Robin Williams' passing, claiming that she'd be off social media for a few days. Mara's returned, and god love her, by the looks of it, she looks like she's still floundering as hard as the rest of us while trying to come to grips with this massively giant cloud of loss.
From Mara's personal blog:
Everybody grieves in their own way. When I heard about Robin’s death, I was shocked, confused angry, regretful, and above all, sad. All I wanted was talk to my family and friends and cry. A few news outlets asked if I would be willing to talk about him on the air, and while I usually like interviews, I knew I wasn’t in a good place to do that. I still (a whole three days later) don’t want to do any. It’s too soon, and I need my own time to process it all. I will, however, be sharing some of my memories about him on this blog sometime soon.
While Robin and I had not talked in a few years, there is no question he had a great impact on my life. He was as warm and talented as everyone says, and a joy to be around. It’s as if my favorite teacher died.
More to come later.
Like needy children, we look forward to Mara sharing her thoughts on her blog, too. We can't seem to get enough positive memories banked where Robin is concerned, because things have only been looking bleaker and sadderwith regard to the situation he was living in as we hear more, and heaven knows there's no such thing as too much love, reverence, or positivity these days.
