The dearly departed Robin Williams may not have been very tech-savvy, but he loved using social media to send love to his children. One of his last messages was just to let his son, Zak, know how proud he was of him. So sad.
Robin Williams, 63, loved his children very much — and was not afraid to let them or others know it. In one of his last few Instagram posts, Robin honored his son, Zak Williams, on his 31st birthday. In the touching message, Robin made sure to let his son know how proud he was of the “grown man” he has become.

In April 2014, just four months before his tragic death, Robin paid tribute to his son Zak’s life with a sweet black-and-white Instagram photo from when he was a small child.
“You’re a grown man now and I’m so proud of you. A little bit of you will always be my ‘Mr Pym.’ Happy Birthday, @zakpym!” Robin captioned the photo in honor of his son’s birthday.
This was not the last time Robin would address his three beloved children on social media, either. Just over a week before his death, Robin shared a similar picture and message of his daughter, Zelda, for her 25th birthday.
Our thoughts remain with Robin’s family during this difficult time.
