On the one-year anniversary of Paul Walker’s passing, Vin Diesel became upset once more as he remembered his old friend.
Paul Walker, the hero of the Fast and Furious franchise, died eight years ago on Tuesday. In honour of him, his friend and actor Vin Diesel talked up about Paul’s influence on him. Vin uploaded a photo of his daughter Hania and Paul’s daughter Meadow at the latter’s recent wedding on Instagram. Hania was the wedding’s maid of honour. Paul Walker said, “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,” Vin said. “…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”.
He further continued, “Will never forget what you told me… you said a lot of tough guys will tell you to wait outside 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, were 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 on the brotherhood we were blessed to have… but you know that.”
He then added ,”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.”
Paul concluded it with, “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.”
