The death of Robin Williams hits pretty close to home for Granite Staters.

"The World According to Garp" was written by John Irving, a native of my hometown: Exeter, NH. My mom went to school with his mom and I, along with many people of my generation, might have known and /or gone to school with John's twin siblings, Steve and Sarah Irving.  

In high school literature classes we read "Garp" and analyzed it long before the movie was made.  When it hit the theatres, it was a pretty big deal for us all, being so close to the source, and all....

Also, "Jumanji" was shot in Keene, New Hampshire and the setting for "Good Will Hunting" was Boston, MA.

That being said, my small tribute is from my favorite Robin Williams movie.

This is what Academy Awards are made of:
