BOSTON, MA (CBS SF) – On the one-year anniversary of his death, Robin Williams’ television daughter Sarah Michelle Gellar paid tribute to her late tv father through Instagram. Gellar posted a photo of the park bench in Boston, Massachusetts made famous in Williams’ film Good Will Hunting.
To Gellar, Williams was a father figure.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded" #Emerson You succeeded RW #RobinWilliamsREAD MORE: COVID Vaccine: Santa Clara County Debuts Vaccination Site For Teachers, Education Workers At Fairgrounds
