    There were countless movies starring Robin Williams that had us laughing out loud no matter where we watched them.

    One of those treasured films was the 1998 classic Patch Adams, featuring Williams as a medical student who always treated patients with a healthy dose of humor.

    Monica Potter is finally speaking out about her co-star's tragic death that left her nothing short of devastated.

    "This loss has left me truly heartbroken," Potter said in a statement to E! News. "Robin Williams was one of the brightest, most loving & wonderful people I've ever been blessed to know."

    She added, "I'll miss him more than I can ever express in words."

    Her tribute comes the same day Williams' co-stars from Mrs. Doubtfire spoke out about the actor's kindness onset.

    Lisa Jakub, who played Williams' oldest daughter Lydia in the 1993 film, remembered her movie dad as "an incredibly kind human being."

    Lisa's onscreen brother, Matthew Lawrence, went a step further calling Williams the "single most important influence in my career." He added, "not a day goes by [that] I don't appreciate the time I got to spend with him. My deepest thoughts and prayers are with his family."

    Williams' loved ones are now headed to the Bay Area where a private memorial is being planned by the actor's widow, Susan Schneider. "It will be small," a source tells E! News. "They were both very private people."
