“It’s that time of year again,” she wrote in the caption. “Everyone who has dealt with loss knows the pain of certain anniversaries, moments full of memory that come round like clockwork and usurp all others, no matter how hard you may try to prepare for or avoid them.

“Thank you for loving him. Thank you for supporting him and his life’s work. Thank you for missing him. I do too.”

Robin Williams died by suicide in August 2014 after a struggle with Lewy body dementia.
