Vin Diesel wrote on Facebook:
“He was a part of so much in my life… long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel… he took a certain pride in being uncle Pablo… after all, we were filming a scene in FF4 the day she was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilicle cord. He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood… that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life… A year ago today… a year of mourning… and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo.”
Michelle Rodriguez simply posted a photo of Walker with wings.
Sunday marked the one year anniversary of the fiery crash that killed Walker and his friend and business partner, Roger Rodas. The actor was a passenger in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by Rodas, when the car slammed into a light pole and burst into flames. Walker and his friend were pronounced dead at the scene.
