It has been eight years since one of the world’s most beloved actors, Robin William, passed away. On the day commemorating the anniversary of his death, his sons shared a photo of him and a remembrance on social media.
“Dad, on the eighth anniversary of your death, I want to remember how incredibly kind and joyful you were,” wrote Zac Williams, 39, eldest son of the great actor who died Aug. 11, 2014.
“I miss you deeply, wonderful and ‘hairy’ man,” Zac Williams added, “today we will celebrate your life. I love you so much.” Zac is not the only child of Robin Williams who wanted to remember his father. Zelda Williams, 33, also shared a sweet message on Twitter in the form of a quote from Japanese writer Haruki Murakami.
“Once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it, how you managed to survive,” she wrote, “you won’t even be sure if the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you will not be the same person who entered it.” Zelda then added emergency numbers to call for suicide prevention.
Robin Williams, in fact, took his own life at the age of 63. Although everyone knew him for his extraordinary cheerfulness and ability to make others smile and laugh, the great actor was deeply depressed due to a terrible disease, Lewy body dementia, which attacks the brain and causes anxiety, insecurity and depression. It is the second most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s.
Famous for the TV series “Mork & Mindy” and his unforgettable performances in such films as “Good Morning Vietnam” (1987), “Dead Poet’s Society” (1989), Mrs. Doubtfire – Mommy Forever (1993) and Will Hunting – Rebellious Genius (1997), to name a few, Robin Williams left a deep void in the hearts of fans. Who still remember him fondly and share the most intense videos of his performances on social media.
