Losing a parent is like losing a limb. A piece of your heart. You will live with that grief by the end of the life. Words can’t express the emptiness you feel in your soul.
But, you can always do something to keep the memory alive. Naming your kid after your father or mother is one of the best ways to fill up the void.
It’s not uncommon for parents to name their baby in memory of a loved person. This incredible gesture means much more than you can imagine.
On May 22, 2019, Zak Williams, the eldest son of the late Robin Williams, and his fiancé Olivia June got their first baby.
The 8-pound miracle brought joy to their lives, and the parents decided to name it McLaurin Clement Williams, as a tribute to the late grandfather. Zak and Olivia will call the baby Mickey.
Zak’s half-sister Zelda, share a photo of the baby on Instagram.
“Meet Mclaurin Clement Williams, aka Mickey, aka Dr. Baby! He’s a squishably cute pterodactyl cooing tiny wonder and I love him so much already,” she wrote.
“Big shoutout to Mickey on being the fastest swimmer, and huge congrats to @heyoliviajune and my big bro @zakpym on creating this little joy (and poop) factory!”

Robin Williams was an incredible actor who liked to talk about wisdom and the philosophy of life. He used to give the best quotes about life, and the world will remember him as a wise man who had so much to give.
Williams was depressed for years, and even had an early-stage Parkinson’s disease. He did an effort to stay sober, but died right after checking himself into rehab.
“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,” his wife Susan Schneider wrote. “It is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
Zak is a mental health advocate, and he wished he had spent more time with his father. In his biography, Robin, Zak wrote about the pain he felt after his dad. He didn’t visit him that often, and the actor was really lonely. Robin needed support, and he was left all by himself.
