Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker passed away on November 30th, 2013, and his daughter Meadow honored the anniversary of his death by reuniting with Walker’s coworkers and friends Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster.
In her post, Meadow and the rest of the gang seem to be playing with Nerf guns, and she posted the image with the lovely caption “celebrating you today, and everyday.”
Fans commented on her photo, expressing their love for her dad and praising the young woman that she has grown into.
“Love this. I’ll always remember him.”
“Ur father will forever live in my heart he was such an amazing person”
“Bless you guys”
“RIP Paul, you are missed”
Brewster, Walker’s love interest in the Fast & Furious franchise, also posted a loving tribute to Walker with the caption “Love you with all my heart, miss you with all my heart.”
Diesel has been a presence in Meadow’s life despite Walker’s passing, and she is clearly an honorary member of the Diesel family. Diesel posted a birthday message for Meadow on her 21st birthday, encouraging her to come to the family’s for cake.
“I could say that I am so proud of the person you are becoming… but the truth is I have always been proud of you. Happy birthday Meadow! I know its your 21st and you wanted to go big in Japan, but the family has a cake waiting for you when you get home, so hurry. Love you kid.”
Brewster also posted a birthday message to Meadow, calling her “soul sister.”
Diesel has been open about the difficulty of losing Walker, explaining in 2016 that the previous three years were some of the hardest of his life.
“We’ve felt the loss. The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that. I’d been to Brazil two times before and both times that I’ve been here, I’ve always been with my brother, Pablo [his nickname for Walker].
Even if I talked on ET in Brazil or any talk show, any press or while we were filming in the favelas, it was Pablo and me. It was a lot of tissues and it was a hard morning for me yesterday because I was here. But the irony is, the whole cast reached out and his daughter, Meadow, reached out and all that stuff helps you get through it.”
Diesel seems to be in a better place now, and it really is wonderful that he is still a part of Meadow’s life.
