The world was saddened to hear about the death of one of the most beloved actors and comediennes of our time, Robin Williams. Williams died yesterday of suicide, due to hanging, based on a preliminary investigation. According to reports, the actor suffered from severe depression.
People who’ve met the talented star have said he’s one of the nicest people in the industry. He will surely be missed, but thankfully we have some of his unforgettable films to help keep his memory alive.
His 25-year-old daughter, Zelda Williams, posted a heartfelt message to her dad, taken from legendary french poet Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Williams also left behind two sons, Zachery and Cody, and his wife, Susan Schneider. Just days earlier he posted a throwback photo with himself and Zelda, along with a birthday message for the 25-year-old. “#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams! Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl. Happy Birthday @zeldawilliams Love you!”
Of his children, Williams once stated, “My children give me a great sense of wonder. Just to see them develop into these extraordinary human beings.” It’s sad that this exceptional talent won’t be around to see his children thrive. The late, great, Robin Williams will be greatly missed.
