PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE LATE ACTOR

The wedding venue also happened to be the place where Cody fell in love with his bride six years ago. During their ceremony, the couple paid tribute to Robin, his cousin Todd Elsner, Maria’s late grandfather Daniel Flores, her aunt Carol Bowling, and many others.

While a recording of the bride singing “Never Enough” played in the background, the wedding guests held up yellow roses. To show their undying love for their late family members the couple also lit a candle with three wicks.

On her post on social media, Zelda shared two images of the bride and groom with one featuring herself as well. In her caption, she revealed that her father’s birth date had “meant many things to me over the years.”

She acknowledged the date as the birthday of Juno Temple, someone she called one of her “favorite souls.” Zelda also noted that it was also “the day Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon.”

HOW ROBIN DIED

She then went on to celebrate her new “sister” and congratulated the couple. Williams committed suicide at the age of 63 and his wife Susan Schneider attributed it to his struggle with Lewy body disease.

Ahead of his father’s fifth anniversary of his death, Zachary opened up about Robin’s struggle with mental health to Good Morning Britain. He shared: “It was sad to see someone who was suffering so. As a family member and a child, you want to do everything you can to help soothe and ease what seemed to be intense personal pain.”
