Find out the person he most wanted to meet.
Robin Williams’ death continues making headlines as fans remember him by watching their favorite films. One is a little known movie from 1998 entitled What Dreams May Come.
What Dreams May Come tells the story of a father who lives through the horror of his two children dying in a car accident and how they meet again in the afterlife when he dies four years later.
During an interview as part of the film’s press junket, Williams reflects on the film’s message. Then, poignantly, he expresses his own thoughts and hopes about heaven. He talks about the person he most wants to be reuinted with there, as well as the foreshadowings of paradise he has experienced in life.
This video clip is a poignant reminder that nearly everyone imagines what the afterlife might be like. It also shows how reflecting on death helps us understand what’s truly important in life.
