Zak Williams has surely made his father proud. After his death in 2014, Zak became a mental health advocate. He regrets not spending more time with his dad during those times. "I think that was a very lonely period for him".

"Your legacy lives on in your family and in those who carry your spirit within their hearts. We will continue to fight for what’s good in the world, for peace, and for connecting people instead of tearing them apart. Love you so much!"
