This week, after coming back from a hiatus, Ellen DeGeneres aired a belated, but amazingly touching, tribute to the late comedian Robin Williams. 

Compiled just from clips of William's visits to Ellen, the segment came several weeks after many other had already paid their tribute to Williams, but that doesn't make it any less special, endearing or inspiring.

"Every time he was here, he made me laugh so hard," Ellen said. "He was really one of a kind and I'm thankful that I got to call him a friend."
