Paul Walker always loved the ocean. So it’s fitting that, more than two weeks after his sudden and tragic death, his friends and family gathered on a Santa Barbara, Calif. beach to say their final goodbyes to the late actor.
Paul Walker‘s friends and family — including his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, and his Fast and the Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson — spent the day sharing memories and paying tribute to the beloved star during a beach memorial on Dec. 16. Meadow, who has inspired her family by staying strong after Paul’s death, seemed to be leaning on friends for comfort during the emotional tribute.

Those nearest and dearest to Paul — including his father, his daughter, his brother, and his Fast and the Furious co-star Tyrese — got together to celebrate the late actor’s life by enjoying a beautiful day at the beach in Santa Barbara, where Paul had been living before his death, TMZ reports.
In a new photo, Meadow and a group of friends are shown taking a stroll along the beach that her father once loved so much, and she seems to be in good spirits.
We think this was a wonderful way to honor Paul since we know how much he loved simple beach living.
