It’s been four months since Paul Walker tragically passed away, leaving an unimaginable heartache for his Fast & Furious family.
And while the extremely tight-knit cast may never fully heal from the tragedy that occurred Nov. 30, at least one member of the family—Vin Diesel—has been able to not only mourn his brother, but also share his memories thanks to his Facebook page.

On March 22, the 46-year-old actor shared his most recent tribute, which he titled “The Two Pauls.”
“[Paul Walker] and my mother would have deep conversations… she claimed that it was no accident that this on-screen duo has come to define brotherhood in our millennium,” he posted, along with a picture of the late star and another light-haired man with a goatee. “You see… the other guy in the photo is also named Paul… and although they look more alike, he is actually my twin brother.”
Since his untimely death, Vin’s Facebook page has become a place where he can not only mourn his friend’s death, but also celebrate his life and their friendship.
On Dec. 6—days after Paul’s untimely death—he told his fans about how he immediately went to be with the Walker family when he heard the news.
“I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs,” he wrote. “His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry… I said sorry? You’re the mother who lost a son? She said yes, but you lost your other half.”

In yesterday’s post, “The Two Pauls,” Vin thanked his Facebook fans for helping him to create that space.
“Grateful to have our page as a sanctuary,” he wrote. “It has helped in these past few months more than you know… and God knows we will need all of you to complete this intense experience called SEVEN.”
Last week, Vin opened up, on Facebook, about the trouble he was facing transitioning “into that Dom state of mind” as they began production on the seventh installment the Fast and the Furious franchise.
Their other “brother” Tyrese revealed how they will honor Paul as production resumes on the movie.
“God’s grace is all we have,” he told TooFab. “Before we start filming we are going to have a strong prayer. That will be the start, before we film anything. That’s what is needed for us to do Fast & Furious 7.”
