Most of us remember where we were when we heard the news of actor Paul Walker tragically passing away in a car accident. It was an emotional moment for everyone that knew him and of him.
However, it was particularly difficult for his co-worker and friend Vin Diesel, who took the news extremely hard. Vin always said Paul was a brother to him, and that he always had his back, which is why he wanted to do something extra special to remember his friend.
First, he named his daughter after Paul because of the advice he gave him the first time he heard Vin was expecting his first child.
‘I can remember just like yesterday he said to me, ‘ A lot of tough guys will tell you to wait in the hallway, don’t go in the delivery room. [Paul said] but Vin, go into that delivery room, be present and cut that umbilical cord and it will be the best day of your life,’ Vin Disel said.
He continued: ‘As I’m cutting the umbilical cord, I’m thinking to myself it’s all because Paul Walker told me to go into the delivery room and so once it came time to sign the name, I started writing ‘Paul’ and just added I-N-E.’
He also got himself a back tattoo that appears to have a meaning connected to Walker. It looks to be wings with eyes in the center, and the eyes look identical to Paul’s, leaving many to believe it was to honor his dear friend.
Unfortunately, the tattoo isn’t permanent, as it was only intended for his character in his upcoming movie. Either way, it’s an extremely nice gesture to honor Paul.
