It's been five years since Paul Walker passed on, and on the day that would have been his 46th birthday, his daughter, Meadow, shared a special tribute to mark the day.
Had Paul Walker lived, he would have turned 46 on September 12. To celebrate the day, his daughter and only child, Meadow Walker, shared a sweet tribute to the late actor on Instagram.
"Happy birthday to the loveliest soul I'll ever know."
Her followers took to the comment section to share kind words with the actor's daughter, and his "Fast and Furious" co-star Gal Gadot commented with a heart-shaped emoji.
Ludacris commented with an emoji of lifted hands, and in a separate Instagram post, wrote in honor of the actor,
"Happy [birthday] big bro; your legacy will always be alive, and your presence felt everywhere."
Tyrese Gibson, another "Fast and Furious" co-star, wrote that he missed Walker, and called him a "Brother indeed." The comedian and actor added about the deceased,
"Your laughter was infectious. Once you started laughing, it would change the mood of any room or anyone that was around."
Gibson equally noted that Meadow has become beautiful, tall, and the late movie star would be proud of how "Strong she is, and has been." Vin Diesel, who shared a close relationship with Walker, took things up a notch.
The man who played "Dominic Torreto," wrote an open letter to his late friend; he wrote that the late dad-of-one would be happy to know that the cast and crew of the "Fast and Furious" franchise just finished shooting a new installment in Scotland.
Diesel listed all the things that Walker would have loved to see and laugh about, before adding,
"Normally, today I will be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha. Instead, I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother."
The late actor passed away in November 2013, after the car he was traveling in with Roger Rodas, crashed into a tree in Valencia, California, on their way to a charity event.
A year before that, Meadow moved from Hawaii, where she lived with her mother to stay with her father.
The actor and his daughter had a close relationship, and in a statement to People, his brother, Cody said,
"He loved being a dad; he was so proud of [Meadow]."
Walker might be dead, but his daughter and friends continue to keep his memory alive.
