One year after the tragic death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker, his co-stars and celebrity friends posted their tributes and memorials on their respective social media accounts.
Michelle Rodriguez was among the first who posted her tribute to the late star. Paired with a smiling black and white photo Walker, Rodriguez wrote this loving message: “I love you Paul. [You’re] living in the hearts of all who love you for sure. Sending mad love out to Heaven @SupportROWW.” Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) is the charitable foundation established by Walker to help support victims of natural disasters all around the globe.

Rodriguez also posted an illustration of Walker on Instagram which featured the actor with angel wings amidst a heavenly background.
Vin Diesel also made a post about his “year of mourning” on Facebook, noting how Walker was “an important part” of his transition to fatherhood. The Guardians of the Galaxy star reminisced about his good times with Walker, stating how the late actor encouraged him to leave filming Fast and Furious 4 to cut the umbilical cord of his new daughter. Diesel then posted a portrait of her daughter having a good time with her “Uncle Pablo.”
Tyrese Gibson who starred with Walker on 2 Fast 2 Furious encouraged his followers to celebrate the life of Walker. “Physically gone but forever alive in our minds, hearts and spirit…. What was once tears of pain and shock are now tears of JOY celebrating all that you stood for,” he added in his emotional post on Facebook.
Dedicated fans of the late actor also went to the site of the car crash in Los Angeles to leave flowers, candles, and other tributes to the late star. Walker died after a tragic car crash with his friend Roger Rodas. Walker leaves behind his 16-year old daughter Meadow, and his younger brothers Cody and Caleb who now handles the ROWW charity.
