Williams lives in the hearts of many fans and surely in the heart of his daughter. His death on 11 August 2014 had a massive impact on her. In an interview with Today, she opened up about the painful days after his death. "I didn't see daylight for a while. For a while, no one would let me do anything," recalled the actress. She continued, "I think there’s that reaction of like, 'Oh, s—, are you OK?' And then even if you are OK, they’re like, ‘Well, what’s wrong?' And so for a while, I was just kind of left to my own devices," according to Today.
She even admitted that she needed more time to overcome grief. "It’s going to take a lot of work to allow myself to have the sort of fun, happy life that I had, but that's important. Anybody who has ever lost anyone works very hard to continue that memory in a positive way," according to Today. She even admitted that his birthday and death anniversaries were difficult days to deal with. "It’s that time of year again. Everyone who has dealt with loss knows the pain of certain anniversaries, moments full of memory that come round like clockwork and usurp all others, no matter how hard you may try to prepare for or avoid them. These weeks are the hardest for me, and thus, you’ll see me a lot less, if at all," she wrote on Instagram, according to People.
For Zelda who holds her dad close to her heart, these new pictures are a source of strength.
