Robin Williams' daughter thanks fans

Robin Williams' daughter has thanked fans for their support following his death.  

Zelda Williams - who briefly quit Twitter after receiving abusive messages following her father's suicide last month - has been touched to receive letters and stories from people who have experienced similar tragedies and finds it inspiring to hear how they have been able to move on from their losses.  

She wrote: "I just want to say thank you for all the stories and letters I've been receiving, especially from those who've also lost loved ones.  

"I don't come online often, but reading of others who have dealt with this loss & gone on to live happy, full lives is helpful. Truly.(sic)"  

The 25-year-old actress then retweeted a picture of her father singing alongside 'Sesame Street's two-headed monster.   She wrote alongside a smiley face: "Bearded sing off."  

Zelda returned to social media at the beginning of September after a three-week break.  

She posted a link to her tumblr page of a quote from Harvey Fierstein - who played Frank Hillard alongside Robin in 'Mrs. Doubtfire - which read: "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."  

Alongside the link, she simply wrote. "Thank you."  

Zelda announced she was quitting Twitter on August 13 after two users sent her Photoshopped pictures of her father, just days after he hung himself at his home.   

She wrote: "Please report @PimpStory @MrGoosebuster. I'm shaking. I can't. Please. Twitter requires a link and I won't open it. Don't either. Please."  

She added moments later: "I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye."
