Paul Walker’s Father Devastated Over His Death
“I’m just glad that every time I saw him, I told him I loved him,” Paul Walker Sr. tearfully told CBS2 news. “And he would say the same thing to me.”
If that’s not heart-wrenching enough, Paul’s father said the Fast and the Furious star wanted to spend more time with his 15-year-old daughter Meadow.
“I want to take a hiatus,’” Paul Sr. recalled his son saying shortly before his tragic death. “‘She’s just 15 and I don’t have much more time to be with her.’ Then boom, he got another movie. He would say, ‘I don’t know what to do.’”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Paul’s friends and family during this difficult time.
