Robin Williams’ son, Zak, has paid tribute to his dad on the 7th anniversary of his death.

In a post on Twitter, Zak remembered his dad’s laughter and joy.

“Dad, seven years ago today you passed on. The joy and inspiration you brought to the world carries on in your legacy and in your family, friends, and fans you so loved. You lived to bring laughter and to help others. I will be celebrating your memory today. Love you forever.”

Daughter Zelda also tweeted, saying the loss was hard to bear but said it helped to know she wasn’t alone.

Twitter users responded to the tribute, confirming how much Robin is still very much loved and missed.

Williams was just 63 when he took his own life in 2014. It was later revealed he was battling a degenerative condition called Lewy Body Dementia.
