A Tribute to Paul Walker [VIDEO]
Fans around the world, myself included, were shocked when we learned that actor Paul Walker had died suddenly at the age of 40. The sad irony that the ‘Fast and the Furious’ star died in a fiery car crash was not lost on any of us. So when I came across this very touching video tribute on YouTube today, I just had to share it.
My youngest son, who is a big car enthusiast, got me into the ‘Fast and the Furious’ movies. I’ve seen all of them and so Paul Walker’s work is familiar to me. And then, of course, there was his turn as the dashing quarterback in the movie ‘Pleasantville.’
Paul Walker was killed in a single-car crash on November 30th after leaving a charity event. He was a passenger in the Red Porsche Carrera GT driven by Roger Rodas when they left the event to go for a ride in the high performance car. Somehow, Rodas reportedly lost control of the car and it clipped a tree and a light pole before crashing, and then bursting into flames. Both Walker and Rodas were killed.
Country stars took to Twitter to offer their thoughts and condolences about the actor’s death. As I said, I found this video on YouTube. If you love the movies, check out the video. It will touch your heart. Our condolences to the family of Paul Walker, who left this world like a modern-day James Dean. We’re sorry to see you go. Rest in peace, Paul.
