There have been reports that the late Robin William’s memorial service is being held today in Tiburon, California.
According to sources, the service “will be small” as both Robin and Susan were “both very private people”.
So, we thought it fitting to share this touching poem written by Jim Meskimen who has been the voice of the Genie in Aladdin in a number of video games since 2008. Williams was the one who brought the Genie to life in the original making of the Disney film.
To honour the memory of such a talented man and to decide whether he would continue to voice the Disney character, Jim “decided to write this poem, to work it out for [himself], and to answer the question.”
Sit down with a cup of tea and have a listen to the beautiful piece.
