Robin Williams' Daughter Zelda Sends Message of Gratitude
By Jackie Willis
Just over a month after the tragic death of her father Robin Williams, Zelda Williams sends out a heartfelt thanks to those who've shown support to her during this time of mourning.
"I just want to say thank you for all the stories and letters I've been receiving, especially from those who've also lost loved ones," the 25-year-old tweeted early Tuesday morning. "I don't come online often, but reading of others who have dealt with this loss & gone on to live happy, full lives is helpful. Truly."
At the beginning of this month, Zelda returned to Twitter after quitting the social media site days after the death of her dad. She temporarily deleted her Twitter account on Aug. 13, two days after the Oscar winner's passing, due to some social-media users who started posting mean comments about her father's suicide, and also tweeting her a fake photo of Williams' body at the Coroner’s office. She later deleted those tweets and decided to remove herself from social media altogether.
She tweeted at the time: "I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye."
We're glad to see that she's now getting more support from her Twitter friends.
Robin Williams passed away on Aug. 11 of an apparent suicide in his Calif. home. He was 63.
