Vin Diesel Remembers Paul Walker On Second Anniversary Of Death
As Gossip Cop reported, Walker was tragically killed in a car crash on November 30, 2013. At the time, the 40-year-old star was on a brief break from filming Furious 7. Diesel was understandably devastated over the death of his longtime friend and colleague.
Over the last two years, he has shared countless tributes in Walker’s memory. And on Monday, Diesel posted a new one that bitter-sweetly recognized the passage of time. “No matter where you are in this universe… You will always be, my brother,” he wrote. And on Instagram, Diesel shared a photo of himself and Walker with the words “Brotherhood Has No Limits.”
Colleague Tyrese shared a longer message of his own on Instagram. “It’s still not easy…… 2 years ago today… We lost our brother….. Today I’m just gonna lay low and process….. Clarity through Prayers and perspective is what I always seek and pray for….,” wrote the singer-actor.
Tyrese continued, “With a heavy heart I post this….. Please continue to pray for the Walker family and his real friends who was with him every single day…. They’re some of the best and strongest people I know…… I know you’re in heaven smiling and rooting for us all….. #RIH ( Rest in heaven ).”
Over the last year, Walker has remained a big part of his friends’ lives. In March, Diesel named his newborn daughter Pauline in the late actor’s honor. The following month, he was repeatedly celebrated as Furious 7 opened in theaters. And in August, the cast participated in a tribute during the Teen Choice Awards, where Diesel thanked Walker’s daughter Meadow for helping to keep their family “going.”
Meadow is currently embroiled in a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche over the fatal accident. Just last week, Walker’s father filed a near-identical suit. Gossip Cop will update if more co-stars share tributes in Walker’s memory. Feel free to share your own in the comments below.
UPDATE: Gal Gadot, who appeared in Fast & Furious, tweeted a photo of herself with Walker, writing, “Always in our hearts.” Jordan Brewster posted a photo of Walker on Instgram with the caption, “‘The largest part of his power was latent. This is that which we call Character,-a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means.’ -Ralph Waldo Emerson #paulwalkerforever.”
