Robin Williams’ son Zak spoke publicly about his father’s death for the first time as he honored the late actor at a charity fundraiser on Thursday (20Nov14).
The 31 year old attended the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation gala in New York City to celebrate Williams’ friendship with the Superman star, who died in 2004, nearly 20 years after he was paralyzed in a horse-riding accident.
During his onstage speech, Zak Williams opened up about the bond between the Hollywood actors, telling the audience, “They had a tremendous love for one another… The amazing thing about their relationship was their incredible drive to take the time to love, to help, and to appreciate others, even while they found themselves in great pain… They always found time to give their all to those in need. Bringing light and healing where there’s darkness, pain, or suffering is absolutely vital.”
The Good Will Hunting star committed suicide in August (14) and Zak also told Entertainment Tonight how the family is coping with the loss of the comedian, saying, “We’re doing okay. We’re working hard to build our strength and acclimating to the new normal… A large part of what we’re doing through this grieving process is giving and spending time focusing on others… The outpouring was remarkable. People shared their supportive words, art, and all sorts of amazing tributes to my father.”
