The entertainment world, and fans in New England are remembering actor and comedian Robin Williams, who died Monday in an apparent suicide at his home near San Francisco.

Steven Spielberg calls Williams a “pal” and says, “Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him.”

And actor and comedian Steve Martin tweeted that Williams was a “mensch,” a “great talent, acting partner” and a “genuine soul.”
