Actor/comedian Robin Williams got a chance to meet Koko the gorilla many years ago. Koko is famous for her ability to fluently talk with American Sign Language. She and Williams had a lot to discuss and shared tickles and laughter together!
Sadly, Robin Williams passed away on August 11, 2014. Susan Schneider, the actor’s wife, released the following statement:
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one if 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.”
