Vin Diesel grew emotional once again as he remembered his old friend Paul Walker on his death anniversary, opened up about the impact Paul had on him. Taking to Instagram, Vin shared a picture of his daughter Hania and Paul’s daughter Meadow from the latter’s recent wedding. Hania was the maid of honor at the wedding.
“I can remember that day when you and I were filming that scene in F4 where we were eating Chinese food and we had a brother combat scene which ended in you saying ‘Letty just wanted you to come home, Dom…’ When we were done filming that day you came into my trailer and asked, what’s on your mind? You always knew when something was on my mind,” Vin said. “…I told you that I was about to have a baby and didn’t know what to expect at the hospital which I was heading to after work,” he wrote.
He continued, “Will never forget what you told me… you said a lot of tough guys will tell you to wait outside of the delivery room, but that’s wrong. Go in there, actually cut the umbilical cord and it will be the best day of your life. You, of course, we’re talking from experience, having already an angel of your own. It’s been eight years today… and not a day goes by that I don’t reflect of the brotherhood we were blessed to have… but you know that.”
He concluded, “How could I have known that back on the 2008 set of Fast… but maybe somehow you did. Miss you. My children always tell me that uncle Paul is with you dad, always… and I know in my heart that they are right. Miss you Pablo.” Paul died in a car accident on November 30, 2013. Vin and Paul were best friends and had worked together on multiple movies from the franchise.
