Almost all of Paul Walker’s friends and co-stars took to their social media pages to pay tribute to Walker immediately after the tragic car accident that cost him his life on Saturday. However, there was one person that we had yet to hear from…Michelle Rodriguez. Rodriguez broke her silence for the first time since the accident and spoke out about Walker’s death on her official Instagram and Twitter accounts yesterday.
Rodriquez who played Letty in the popular Fast and Furious movies posted a very touching message to her fallen friend. “I’m gonna carry this torch for you brother, with a forced smile on my face and Im gonna open my heart just cause your telling me to,” the 35-year-old actress wrote.
Rodriguez has also changed all of her social media accounts profile pictures in support of Walker’s relief organization that he founded called Reach Out World Wide. According to the Reach Out World Wide official website, Walker “saw a gap between the availability of skilled resources and the requirement for such personnel in post-disaster situations. Following the trip he contacted a group of his friends to assist him in forming ROWW with the purpose of filling this unmet need.”
I'm gonna carry this torch for you brother, with a forced smile on my face and Im gonna open my heart just cause your telling me to.

Just one day before Walker’s death, Rodriguez posted a #FlashbackFriday photo on her official Facebook page with a caption that read: “The Fast & Furious family in 2001… and 2013.” Little did she know that their family would never be complete again.
