Zelda posted a heartfelt tribute to her father on Twitter this past Monday night.

She quoted from the Antoine De Saint-Exupery book "The Little Prince.”

"You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them... In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night... You - only you - will have the stars that can laugh,” it said.

"I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up. Z,” she wrote.

Williams, 63, was married to Zelda’s mother Marsha Garces from 1989 to 2008. Together they had two children, including Zelda’s 22-year-old brother Cody. The couple split in March 2008.

Williams was found dead in his San Francisco home at 11:55 a.m. on Monday. The cause of death appeared to be suicide by asphyxiation, according to the Marin County Coroner.

His wife Susan Schneider released the following statement Monday: “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 that the focus will not be on Robin's death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."

The following is a video from 2011 during which Williams explains why he named his daughter Zelda.
