Paul Walker Honored By Co-Star And ‘Brother’ Vin Diesel

'To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die,' writes Diesel.

As authorities continue to probe the cause of the fiery car crash on Saturday that took the life of Paul Walker, the late star of “The Fast & The Furious” series, the 40-year-old actor’s onscreen co-star paid tribute to the man he considered family.

“To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die,” Vin Diesel wrote on Monday, quoting poet Thomas Campbell.

“Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now … and the profound impact your full life has had on it, on Us … on me,” Diesel continued. “I will always love you Brian [Walker’s “Fast” character], as the brother you were … on and off screen.” At press time, more than 2.5 million people had liked the tribute.

“I’m so sorry for your loss, my condolences for your brother and his family and all his friends around the world,” said fan Rob Diterio in response. “You two had such a great chemistry on film and you are like real brothers! To have had that is such a greatest gift in life, love you guys always.”

Diesel also made a spontaneous appearance at a candlelight vigil held by fans at the site of the crash on Monday night. Speaking through a police cruiser microphone, Diesel thanked Walker supporters for showing up. “At this hard time his family gets to see all of you show the love that you’ve shown Paul,” he said. “It’s going to stay with me forever. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him.”
