Starring in every “Fast and Furious” movie since 2001, Paul Walker died this past Saturday after a tragic car crash.  Everyone was sad to hear about the horrific news, especially Walker’s co-stars. One co-star in particular was Vin Diesel, who delivered a speech to pay tribute to Walker. Diesel, who considered Walker his brother, gave an emotional and moving speech about Walker’s death.  After working together for 12 years, they have formed a bond of brotherhood.  On Monday evening, Diesel posted a message, along with a photo with him and Walker on-set of “Fast & Furious 7,” on Facebook.  The message read, “‘To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.’  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…I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were… on and off screen.”

That same night, Diesel visited the crash site and while at the memorial service for Walker, he was allowed to borrow a megaphone from police officers.  On a video captured by a fan in the audience posted by OMG! Insider, Diesel addresses the crowd by saying, “Show the love that you’ve shown Paul.  It’s going to stay with me forever.  I just wanted to say thank you.  Thank you for coming down and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate.” Although his speech was brief, it was very touching. Many people, along with Vin Diesel, were affected by this horrific tragedy, leaving many people speechless and in shock to his abrupt and unexpected death.
