Zelda and Zak Williams are remembering their late dad, Robin Williams, on the 8th anniversary of his passing.
On Thursday, the renowned comedian’s daughter shared a message from writer Haruki Murakami, followed by a list of suicide prevention tools.
The “Mrs. Doubtfire” actor committed suicide in 2014 after suffering from Lewy body dementia.
“’And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.’ — Haruki Murakami,” Zelda, 33, initially tweeted.

She then posted a thread with information for suicide prevention.
Please add any more you know that may be beneficial to others here as well, Zelda continued. She doesn’t ask much, however if she may, please be kind with one’s heart today. She knows she is making an effort.
A thread of suicide prevention resources I have mostly posted before. Please add any others you know of that may be helpful to others below too, so they can find them. I don’t ask for much, but if I may, be gentle to your hearts today. I know I’m trying. X pic.twitter.com/fhl57W3lcU— Zelda Williams (@zeldawilliams) August 11, 2022
Zak, 39, posted a shot of a bearded Robin gazing off into the horizon.
On the eighth anniversary of your death, Dad, he is recalling how tremendously kind and cheerful his dad was, Zak said on Twitter. He misses his dad terribly, the great, hairy man, and will be commemorating his life today. He adores his dad so much.
Dad, on the eighth anniversary of your passing, I’m remembering how incredibly kind and joyful you were. I deeply miss you you wonderful, hairy man and will be celebrating your life today. Love you so so much! pic.twitter.com/UBa51xeN2g— Zak Williams (@zakwilliams) August 11, 2022
Zak was shared by the “Good Will Hunting” actor and his first wife, Valerie Velardi. With his second wife, Marsha Garces, he had Zelda and Cody, 30.
Zak has been a mental health champion and has spoken about his mourning period since his dad’s passing.
From his end, it was difficult to separate the process of personally mourning vs sharing the sorrow with the wider public, both the American public and the globe, Zak stated in a 2021 interview on Apple TV’s “The Me You Can’t See” with Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry.
From his end, he didn’t get a chance to reflect on the private grief process until approximately a year and a half after his dad died away, he explained. He is grateful and grateful that he recognized how to create limits.
After Bob Saget’s untimely passing, Zelda delivered a heartfelt statement.
While showering love in remembrance of Bob Saget today, please try to be considerate of his loved ones’ grieving and privacy, Zelda wrote in part. If they have socials, don’t hound them. Consume no clickbait media that may have breached their privacy or safety. They’re only human.
