‘We suffered from the same disease’

Chase says that himself and Williams both suffered from depression, but that he could not have expected the death of his friend in an apparent suicide:

Robin and I were great friends, suffering from the same little-known disease – depression. I never could have expected this ending to his life and to ours with him. God bless him and God bless us all for his LIFE! I cannot believe this. I am overwhelmed with grief. What a wonderful man/boy and what a tremendous talent in the most important art of any time – comedy! I loved him.
