    Robin Williams' costars continue to pay tribute to the beloved comedian.

    On Tuesday morning, Dante Basco—best known for playing The Lost Boys' leader Rufio opposite the Oscar winner's Peter Pan in Hook—shared a touching video in honor of his fallen comrade.

    In the farewell clip, the 38-year-old actor zooms in on a movie still of the pair from the 1991 Steven Spielberg-directed film and shares his heartfelt feelings about the Mrs. Doubtfire star.

    "We pause today due to finding out the horrible news of my dear friend Robin Williams' passing. I am just one of many actors that you've worked with, and you changed our lives," he narrated. "And I am just one of the millions of people around the world that will forever miss you. Rest in peace, Robin. See you in Neverland."

    Basco also penned a goodbye letter for Williams, which he posted on his blog.

    "I was lucky to work with him as an actor and witness firsthand the magic of what made him a legend, the wit and otherworldly improv skills. As well as see him singlehandedly put the morale of a movie set, easily hundreds of people, on his shoulders and kept everyone laughing as they worked long hours for what seemed like months on end," he wrote.

    "But I just want to bid a sorrowful farewell to one of the greatest I've been able to work with and be around and I'll always remember my time with you as some of the greatest moments in my life…and just like the rest of the world, I'll remember you with joy and laughter."
