Vin Diesel posted a very lengthy post onto his Instagram, saying that he had so much to tell his late friend, as he reminisced about the old days when they were filming Fast and Furious 4 – he captioned his tribute:

“So much to tell you…

I can remember that day when you and I were filming that scene in F4 where we were eating Chinese food and we had a brother combat scene which ended in you saying ‘Letty just wanted you to come home Dom…’

When we were done filming that day you came into my trailer and asked, what’s on your mind? You always knew when something was on my mind. Haha.

I told you that I was about to have a baby and didn’t know what to expect at the hospital which I was heading to after work. Will never forget what you told me…

You said a lot of tough guys will tell you to wait out side of the delivery room, but that’s wrong. Go in there, actually cut the umbilical cord and it will be the best day of your life.

You of course, was talking from experience, having already an angel of your own.

It’s been eight years today… and not a day goes by that I don’t reflect of the brotherhood we were blessed to have… but you know that.

Tragedies in life are always followed by life’s blessings if you just stay open and have faith.

Look at this photo Pablo, it will make you smile. The same angel that you helped me prepare for in the most beautiful way with your brotherly advice is the same angel that precious Meadow asked to be her Maid of Honor.

How could I have known that back on the 2008 set of Fast… but maybe somehow you did.

Miss you. My children always tell me that uncle Paul is with you dad, always…

and I know in my heart that they are right.

Miss you Pablo…”

Died doing what he loved

Paul Walker passed away in a car accident back in November 30, 2013, whilst in the middle of shooting for Furious 7, the movie was then completed using digital effects with his brother standing in for him in his remaining scenes, and the final product was dedicated as a tribute to the late actor.

The producers of that movie also decided to retire Paul Walker’s character of Brian O’Conner, effectively letting him live on within the Fast and Furious universe, with the subsequent movie installments referencing his whereabouts in the movie to remember him.

Paul Walker’s impact was wide-ranging and deep, with the cast members still speaking fondly of him whenever they recall their early days of filming with the late actor.
