Many fans also shared their thoughts with Robert and praised him for everything he does.
“The only celebrity I’ve ever been truly sad about is losing. He was such a respectful and humble man who loved his wife, his children and all the creatures of the world. A truly rare gem of a human being,” one fan wrote.
Another added: ‘What a strange position you are in, healing the hearts of a world of children (now adults) who were so hurt by the loss of your father, but could never fathom the pain you feel about exactly the same loss… And yet you put that aside and continue the mission. I’m not sure you will ever truly understand the power of what you do, but the world is so much better because of your willingness to take on this unthinkably and brutally unique task. The animals and the people are all so much better off because you are here.’
