AceShowbiz - Paul Walker's family is living his legacy. On Saturday, December 4, the "Fast and Furious" actor's brother Cody Walker reunited with Vin Diesel while hosting his annual FuelFest music and automotive festival in Phoenix, Arizona.
In an Instagram video, the Dominic Toretto depictor was seen hugging the brother of the late actor as he supported him at the event which took place at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. "I'm here with my brother in FuelFest," Vin said in the clip that he shared on Monday. "It is an honor to see the whole car culture being brought together by my brother Cody."
As for Cody, he took to his Instagram account to share a snap of him sharing an embrace with the actor. "Thank you #Phoenix @fuelfest," so he wrote in the caption.
At the fun event, the pair were also joined by fellow "Fast and Furious" star Tyrese Gibson. The actor, who plays Roman Pearce in the popular movie series, treated fans to a picture of them on Instagram Stories as he wrote, "Family is here at @fuelfest." Festival co-founder Chris Lee also shared images featuring Tyrese, Vin and Cody at the event.
The reunion arrived just days following the eighth anniversary of Paul's death. Paying tribute to his friend, Vin wrote on Instagram last week, "So much to tell you... I can remember that day when you and I were filming that scene in F4 where we were eating Chinese food and we had a brother combat scene which ended in you saying 'Letty just wanted you to come home Dom...' When we were done filming that day you came into my trailer and asked, what's on your mind? You always knew when something was on my mind. Haha."
"I told you that I was about to have a baby and didn't know what to expect at the hospital which I was heading to after work," Vin added. "Will never forget what you told me... you said a lot of tough guys will tell you to wait out side of the delivery room, but that's wrong. Go in there, actually cut the umbilical cord and it will be the best day of your life. You of course, was talking from experience, having already an angel of your own. It's been eight years today... and not a day goes by that I don't reflect of the brotherhood we were blessed to have... but you know that."
Vin, who posted a picture of Paul's daughter Meadow in her wedding on the post, went on to write, "Tragedies in life are always followed by life's blessings if you just stay open and have faith. Look at this photo Pablo, it will make you smile. The same angel that you helped me prepare for in the most beautiful way with your brotherly advice is the same angel that precious Meadow asked to be her Maid of Honor. How could I have known that back on the 2008 set of Fast... but maybe somehow you did. Miss you. My children always tell me that uncle Paul is with you dad, always... and I know in my heart that they are right. Miss you Pablo..."
Paul died in a car crash in Valencia, California on November 30, 2013, when "Furious 7" was still filming. That led to his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, being tapped to be Paul's doubles for his character, Brian O'Conner. They additionally provided voiceovers.
