Larry King joined Shepard Smith by phone tonight to reflect on Robin Williams.

King said he adored the 63-year-old actor. “Anybody who knew him would have adored him,” he said, describing him as a sweet, gentle and kind man.

Smith and King discussed Williams’ history of depression. King described the apparent suicide as “incomprehensible.”

“I wonder if we shouldn’t all look around in our lives tonight and say, ‘Who needs me? Who needs a phone call? Who needs a little bit of a pep talk? Who needs a knock on the door tomorrow morning?’ We probably all know somebody,” Smith said.

“Yeah, who needs a simple ‘I love you?’ Who needs a simple ‘I’m thinking about you?’ Why not call a friend? We don’t know what’s going on in someone’s mind at any time. That’s a very nice thought, Shepard,” King responded.

“He gave us the gift of laughter and that’s a gift we can never repay,” King said. “We will not see his likes again.”
