CBS 2013 Upfront PresentationOne year after his devastating death, Hollywood is still mourning actor Robin Williams, who died on August 11, 2014 after he hung himself in his California home. Tributes for the star have been pouring in ever since, and one of the most touching is from his former co-star, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

In an Instagram post timed to the anniversary of his passing, Gellar remembered Williams, with whom she starred on the short-lived CBS series "The Crazy Ones," which aired for one season from 2013 to 2014. The actress shared a snap of the famous Boston bench from Williams's Oscar-winning film "Good Will Hunting," which has become an unofficial monument to the late actor, along with the following quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded.


Gellar added in her own comment, addressed to Williams, "You succeeded RW."

We couldn't agree more. RIP, Robin.
