Robin Williams‘ three children, Zak, Zelda and Cody,
are mourning the loss of their father following the iconic actor’s
suicide on Monday, Aug. 11. In emotional statements released to Us Weekly, the late Oscar winner’s children reveal how their lives — and the world — will never be the same.

“Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a
little grayer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask
those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and
generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought,”
Zak Williams, 31, wrote.

“My family has always been private about our time spent together. It
was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared
with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My
last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that
my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts
and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While
I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find
it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and
loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the
pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and
so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that. To
those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his
favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who
are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is
sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right
after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too… Dad was,
is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls
I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right
now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is
forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his
absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up
again,” Zelda Williams, the actor’s only daughter, 25, wrote.

“There are no words strong enough to describe the love and respect I
have for my father. The world will never be the same without him. I will
miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life,
and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him
again,” Cody Williams, 22, wrote.

Williams’ ex-wife Marsha Garces Williams also
released a statement, asking for people to remember the actor as gentle
and loving. “My heart is split wide open and scattered over the planet
with all of you. Please remember the gentle, loving, generous — and
yes, brilliant and funny man that was Robin Williams. My arms are
wrapped around our children as we attempt to grapple with celebrating
the man we love, while dealing with this immeasurable loss,” she wrote.

In a previous statement obtained by Us Weekly, Williams’ wife Susan Schneider
said: “This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the
world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I
am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for
privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is
our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless
moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
