While most of Hollywood has had a week to mourn the loss Robin Williams, one of his late night TV friends wasn't so lucky.

David Letterman was not taping new episodes of his show last week when the news broke about Robin's suicide. So, it wasn't until last night's episode of The Late Show that David was finally able to publicly grieve and remember his friend.

The 67-year-old talk show host sat at his desk and just spoke about his first memories of Robin being a star from the start, and how Robin even got David a small role on Mork & Mindy before he was really famous.

The latter part of the clip featured a montage of highlights from the almost 50 times that David had interviewed Robin, and the two are laughing uncontrollably in every one.

Announcer Don Pardo, whose baritone could be heard presenting the ever-changing cast week after week, passed away on Monday at his home in Tucson at the age of 96.

Don had also served as the announcer on The Price Is Right and Jeopardy!, but he was best known for SNL, where he announced 39 out of 40 seasons.

The bad news just keeps on coming.

Robin Williams' suicide came as a surprise to all.

And what is making it all the much worse is hearing that his suicide might have been a rash and unplanned decision.

We're hearing a friend of Robin spoke to him the day before he was found dead. The two apparently had a lengthy discussion about many business matters, including several deals that were in the works.

Robin is said to have been "completely engaged in the conversation."

In fact, he was apparently asking many questions and behaving in a manner inconsistent with someone planning their suicide.

The confidante adds:
