While they’ve been apart for nearly a decade, it’s clear Vin Diesel will always carry Paul Walker in his heart.
On Sunday, June 6, the star of the upcoming F9 got a sweet reminder of his late co-star and friend when Paul’s only child, 22-year-old Meadow Walker, sent him a touching throwback photo. In the picture, Vin and Paul’s coordination is picture perfect as they smile in black shirts and similar sunglasses.
“Weeks away from the F9 release… in preproduction for the finale that starts only months from now,” Vin explained in the caption of his Instagram post. “@meadowwalker sends me this image and tells me how happy the photo makes her feel.”
“Naturally,” he continued, “one gets filled with emotion, purpose and ultimately gratitude. Eternal brotherhood is a blessing beyond words.”
The blockbuster star concluded the caption, “Hope to make you proud… All love, Always.” The heartbreaking picture has since amassed more than 2 million likes, including a simple, but ultra sweet comment from Meadow: “I love you.”
