The Late Robin Williams and Koko the gorilla met almost 13 years ago. Koko the gorilla communicates in sign language. The two were the best of friends since 2001, and connected on a incredibly deep level. Monday, Koko was told the news that her friend Robin Williams had passed away. Koko's reaction completely blew me away.

“After the first call, Koko came to Dr. Patterson with an inquiring look on her face. Dr. Patterson explained that ‘we have lost a dear friend, Robin Williams.’”

“Koko was quiet and looked very thoughtful,” a spokesperson for the Gorilla Foundation said in a press release emailed in response to an inquiry from BuzzFeed.
