But Zak’s initial reaction after his father died was heartbreaking in itself. In a statement released through his dad Robin’s representative, he said, “Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend, and the world got a little grayer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought.”
