Wife: Robin Williams was in early stages of Parkinson's

The widow of the comedy legend releases a statement on Thursday...

The wife of Robin Williams says was in the early stages of Parkinson's disease and was sober at the time of his apparent suicide.

In a statement Thursday, Susan Schneider said that Williams was struggling with depression, anxiety and the early stages of Parkinson's when he was found dead earlier this week.

The wife of the actor-comedian said he was not ready to share his Parkinson's diagnosis publicly.

    Funny in a way, so far yet you almost feel like you knew him personally.
    He was truly a legend!
    As one of the marquise said...RIP Robin, make God laugh!"
