Seven years after his death, Robin Williams‘ son is commemorating what would be a milestone for the late actor — his 70th birthday. 

On Wednesday, the comedian’s 38-year-old son, Zachary or “Zak,” shared a heartfelt Instagram post remembering his father. 

Alongside a black-and-white still of Robin, Zak wrote, “Dad, on what would be your 70th birthday, I would want you to know that your incredible spirit lives within us.”

“Our family will be celebrating you and your memory today,” he added. “We miss you and love you always!”

Zak wasn’t the only one missing the Academy Award winning actor, as his comments were flooded with users sharing they missed the Mrs. Doubtfire star as well. Robin died by suicide at the age of 63.
