Many celebrities and fans alike have taken to Twitter to pay their respects to the late Tim Conway.

The comedy legend, known for his work on The Carol Burnett Show, The Apple Dumpling Gang, Married... With Children, and countless others, died on May 13th at the age of 85.

Conway had been suffering complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH), which ultimately lead to his passing.


Twitter is abuzz with many sending their well wishes, and reminiscing about watching Conway on television.

Several have also tweeted about their experiences meeting Conway during his lifetime.

Conway's legacy began as a guest star on The Carol Burnett Show, before joining as a regular in 1975. There, he was responsible for classic characters such as The Oldest Man and The Dentist, and was known for frequently making his costars break character due to his hilarious ad-libbing.

He, at one point, had his own sitcom, known as The Tim Conway Show. The show ran for one season, between 1980 and 1981.

Since then, he has appeared on many television shows, including McHale's Navy as Ensign Charles Parker and Married... With Children as Ephraim Wanker.

He even had a recurring role on Spongebob Squarepants as Barnacle Boy (a parody of Robin, sidekick to the DC superhero Batman).

Carol Burnett, a close friend and costar of Conway, had kind things to say about him.

"He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He'll be in my heart forever."

Tim Conway's unique stage presence and impeccable sense of humor will be dearly missed.

It is obvious he has touched many lives, and his brand of comedy will always live on.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
