Frances Bean Cobain, Kurt Cobain’s daughter comforted Robin William’s daughter Zelda upon his untimely death. And Lance Armstrong was among his fast friends.
Grunge musician, Kurt Cobain, committed suicide in the mid 90s. He left behind a daughter names Frances Bean Cobain. Today another star has left us and that is actor Robin Williams.
He too has a daughter named Zelda. Both Kurt Cobain and Robin Williams suffered from chronic depression and both of them battled the debilitating illness for years before finally giving in.
Frances left a message for Zelda on her Twitter account which went like this: “You have an incredibly beautiful soul.” Frances also said that she knew that Zelda already knew that about herself.
And as for her support, it was unconditional. She said that whenever and wherever she needed her, she would be there for Zelda. Robin Williams had made many movies such as Mrs.
Doubtfire, Hook and Dead Poet’s Society. The fans and costars from these films also poured in their grief and condolences to Zelda. Zelda posted a message for her departed dad saying that she would always miss him and look up to him.
She wrote, "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."
Zelda Williams also posted following Instagram with caption, "I will be leaving this account for a but while I heal and decide if I'll be deleting it or not. In this difficult time, please try to be respectful of the accounts of myself, my family and my friends. Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary. There are a couple throughout, but the real private moments I shared with him were precious, quiet, and believe it or not, not full of photos or 'selfies.'
I shared him with a world where everyone was taking their photo with him, but I was lucky enough to spend time with him without cameras too. That was more than enough, and I'm grateful for what little time I had. My favorite photos of family are framed in my house, not posted on social media, and they'll remain there. They would've wound up on the news or blogs then, and they certainly would now. That's not what I want for our memories together. Thank you for your respect and understanding in this difficult time. Goodbye. Xo."
Meanwhile, Robin Williams was not just an actor but a cycling enthusiast. Among the cycling athletes he knew on a friendly basis may be included: Lance Armstrong and Eddy Merckx.
Not only did he keep an eye on the biking rallies but Robin kept a retinue of bikes for his own satisfaction. The basic reason behind Robin’s desire to bee a part of the biking scene was the champion Lance Armstrong.
Lance was an inspirational force since he never gave up. Despite being forced to give up his medals due to the use of drugs, Lance persevered.
Williams was a permanent cheerleader for the Tour de France. He also supported Armstrong’s foundation for charity. About a dozen years ago, Williams even went out cycling with Armstrong and his team.
Armstrong posted these memorable words on Twitter: “I will always remember you as one hell of a friend”. Merckx also remembered him in kind words. Robin indeed was one of a kind.
RIP Robin. I will always remember you as one hell of a friend. I love you and will miss you terribly.— Lance Armstrong (@lancearmstrong) August 11, 2014
Belgium legend Merckx had also met Williams during the cycling event. "I am shocked at Robin Williams' death," Merckx was quoted on a Belgian radio station VRT Tuesday.
"He had a great sense of humor and he was a cycling fanatic. He was above all a big friend of Lance Armstrong, but he knew me and what I had won."
"If you are a cycling fanatic then you've heard of Merckx. I've cycled with him a few times over in America," the 69-year-old added.
