So devastating. Paul’s mother, Cheryl, was seen for the first time since her eldest son’s tragic death, looking heartbroken outside her home in Valencia, Calif.
Paul Walker‘s mother, Cheryl Walker, was visibly upset when she was spotted on Dec. 5. This is the first photo we’ve seen of her since her beloved son Paul, 40, died from traumatic and thermal injuries in a fiery car crash on Nov. 30. Her sighting comes one day after her youngest son, Cody Walker, made the first step toward acceptance by removing items from his late brother’s home on Dec. 4.
Paul Walker’s Mom Cheryl Walker: First Photo Grieving After Son’s Death
Cheryl, a former fashion model, was seen taking out the trash and getting the mail in her front yard wearing a sweater and jeans, and looked grief-stricken, even while trying to put on a brave face. Hopefully, her spirits were lifted a bit, since Cody, 25, was also pictured paying his mom a visit with a female friend. We’re so glad the family has each other to lean on during this tragic time — including Paul’s other siblings Caleb Walker, 36, Ashlie Walker and Amie Walker.
Cheryl noticed her son’s handsome looks from a young age, and helped develop his acting career, according to the Daily Mail.
Cheryl’s husband and Paul’s father, Paul Walker Sr., is utterly heartbroken as well, especially since his last conversation with his son was extremely emotional. “The last conversation we had, I sat there, I looked at him and I said, ‘You know, I love you very much. I love all of you. And we’re all very, very close. If anything was to happen to anybody in this family, it would be a rough deal,’” Paul’s father told E! News.
Paul Walker’s Girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard Gosnell Breaks Down
Paul’s girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, 23, is turning to her close friends and family, as well as Paul’s loved ones, for support during this difficult time. In one new photo, Jasmine is shown sobbing while a friend holds her in a comforting embrace.
In another, we can clearly see the emotion on her face — her eyes are swollen and red from crying and she has no makeup on. On Dec. 4, Meadow Walker, Paul’s 15-year-old daughter was spotted for the first time as well since the accident, also looking visibly upset outside her home.
Our thoughts go out to all of Paul’s family and friends during this tragic time.
