It’s been four months since the death of beloved actor and comedian, Robin Williams.
Robin left a huge hole in the hearts of everyone who knew him when he died on August 11 at the age of 63. His son, Zak, spoke to People magazine admitting he “misses him all the time”.
Williams committed suicide in August, after dealing with crippling depression and a recent diagnosis of dementia.
Four months after the tragic loss, his eldest child Zak said they are still struggling to life without him.
In an interview with People, the 31-year-old remembered his dad, and said, “I miss him all the time. Often I see something, or if I’m watching a film, I think, ‘Oh man, he would have appreciated this,’ or, ‘He would have gotten a laugh out of this'”.
He added of his younger siblings Zelda, 25, and Cody, 23, “There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think about our dad.”
Robin’s family is coping with the loss by focusing on helping others, something Williams dedicated his life to.
In the People issue, many shared their fond memories of Williams.
Marlo Thomas, who knew Robin for 18 years due to his work with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, said he was incredible with the youngsters who were being treated there.
She revealed, “One of them liked toy soldiers, so Robin sent him his own toy soldiers that he had saved all those years of his childhood, she recalled. ‘When he came there, it was like magic.'”
Robin’s final movie, Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, will be released on December 19.
Last week, Robin’s widow Susan Schneider was at the New York City premiere of the third and last Night At The Museum movie in honor of her late husband.
