"We used to talk about Parkinson's a lot," Connolly said. "He would call me and we would compare notes. His was early onset, the same as mine. Everybody worries about it. It's like a mugger following you around."

The two comedians were very close friends, which is shown by the fact that Connolly has several photographs of himself and Williams sharing laughs together still saved on his cell phone, however this wasn't the case in their final conversation.

"We told each other we loved each other. I told him and he told me many times," the Scotsman explained. "I never stopped it and he never stopped telling me. As a matter of fact, I thought afterwards he tried to say goodbye to me, because he got very luvvie towards the end. It's fanciful but that's what I told myself. On the last phone call he said, 'I love you like a brother' and I said, 'I know you do' and he said, 'Are you sure you know?' and I said, 'Yes'. Robin worried about everything."
