Fans and loved ones took to social media on Sunday to pay tribute to the late Paul Walker who died just one year ago in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, Ca. Among some of those remembering the star, Walker’s Fast and Furious co-stars.
“A celebration of Paul William Walker will be echoed around the world,” Tyrese wrote on Instagram. “In this life one would hope to be this “effective” 1 year ago today God called an angel home early…. I miss my brother I miss my friend and I miss OUR STAR!!!!! Physically gone but forever alive in our minds, hearts and spirit…. What was once tears of pain and shock are now tears of JOY celebrating all that you stood for….. Everyone worldwide please take 5 mins out of your day to send live, prayers and energy to Paul’s family his daughter Meadow and immediate circle today will be a tough day for us…. To this day his arm is still around my neck with love and protection….. Rest in heaven.”
Vin Diesel wrote on Facebook:
“He was a part of so much in my life… long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel… he took a certain pride in being uncle Pablo… after all, we were filming a scene in FF4 the day she was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilicle cord. He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood… that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life… A year ago today… a year of mourning… and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo.”
Michelle Rodriguez simply posted a photo of Walker with wings.
Sunday marked the one year anniversary of the fiery crash that killed Walker and his friend and business partner, Roger Rodas. The actor was a passenger in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by Rodas, when the car slammed into a light pole and burst into flames. Walker and his friend were pronounced dead at the scene.
