The world is a little less funny today after the death of Robin Williams this morning. His life and light touched all who ever watched his movies or listened to him speak.

We will all miss him, but more than anyone else he will be missed by those closest to him. The Juice compiled some of the most moving tributes to Robin from his family and closet friends.

His wife

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one if its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin's death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."
