Paul’s funeral service will be a private event, for his family only — with the exception of the cast and crew of ‘The Fast and the Furious,’ who have all been invited, according to a new report.
We told you Paul Walker will reportedly be laid to rest in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills in California this weekend, and now we know that the service will be by invitation only. The strict guest list has been made mostly out of concern for Paul’s 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, who is devastated by his loss.
