The grieving mother acknowledges everyone during charity event
Paul Walker’s mother took the time to thank fans for their overwhelming support since the actor’s untimely demise in 2013.
Walker died in a tragic car accident at only 40 years old. As the third anniversary of the event approaches this November, Cheryl acknowledged fans during his Reach Out Worldwide charity event last weekend.
She said: “I want to say thank you to all of you for all of your support. My son lives on in all of you. It makes his work continue here on Earth and I know he’s watching over us.”
Paul’s brother added that the charity helps tremendously in keeping his memory alive: “It’s a bit of Paul that we still have. We all miss him, we love him and we’re all here to support him.”
Both Cody and his brother Caleb assisted in Furious 7 as the actor passed away during production. The two revealed that working on the set helped them understand him better.
Caleb shared: “We got to understand more about Paul, and what he was all about. We had to share Paul with a lot of people, in a weird way. He was gone a lot, he was filming, so we missed him.”
The siblings feel at peace after filming as it provided them with a better sense of closure.
He continued: “Sometimes at the holidays he wasn’t always there, you know? He tried. We’d see him on set, we visited a few times, but to kind of get that closure, and understanding [of] Paul was really special.
We had a really good talk with Vin [Diesel]. Vin is like the godfather, he really is, and he kind of became our godfather in a weird way. He obviously knew Paul so well, he shared things with us that Cody and I [didn’t know.]
