Two days after Paul was laid to rest during a heart-wrenching funeral on Dec. 14, his friends and family gathered on a Santa Barbara, Calif. beach to pay tribute to the late actor.
Paul Walker‘s family, including his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, came together once again to say their final goodbyes to the beloved Fast and the Furious star during an intimate beach memorial on Dec. 16. The time they spent together was anything but somber, though, as Paul’s loved ones chose to celebrate his life, rather than mourn his tragic death.

Those nearest and dearest to Paul — including his father, his daughter, his brother, and his Fast and the Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson — got together to remember the late actor in the best way they knew how. The group enjoyed a beautiful day playing football and hanging out on a beach in Santa Barbara, where Paul had been living before his death, TMZ reports.
We think that sounds like a wonderful way to honor Paul since we know how much he loved simple beach living.
