    Our thoughts are with Robin Williams' daughter Zelda Williams.

    The 25-year-old actress shared a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's book The Little Prince via her Twitter and Instagram accounts on Monday. "You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them..." she wrote. "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 stars that can laugh." Zelda concluded by adding the words, "I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up, Z."

    Hours earlier, 63-year-old Robin was found dead at his home in Tiburon, Calif., from an apparent suicide.

    His wife, Susan Schneider, previously 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."

    In his final Instagram update on July 31, Robin celebrated Zelda's birthday via Instagram. "#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams!" the Aladdin and Jumanji star wrote in the photo caption. "Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl. Happy Birthday @zeldawilliams Love you!"

    Zelda is Robin's daughter with his second wife, Marsha Garces. The What Dreams May Come actor was also dad to sons Cody Williams, 22, and Zachary Williams, 31, from his first marriage to Valerie Velardi.

    Robin was a devoted family man. Several years ago, while talking about his wife Marsha and his three children, the beloved comic told E! News, "I'm just lucky she married me...I'm the luckiest guy in the world." He added, "She's even talked about this. It's a line from Parenthood where the kid said, basically, 'You have to take a test to drive a car but any a--hole can have a kid.' And he was talking about, 'What qualifies you to be a parent? How much do you know or care about raising a child?'...Even with my own children being so far ahead of where I was, I stand back and kind of go, 'They're coming! They're here!'"
