A stunning six million people around the world have ‘liked’ Vin Diesel’s Facebook tribute to Paul Walker.
The action hero posted his touching tribute after his Fast & Furious co-star Walker died in a horrific car crash a week ago.
It read: When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother’s house…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. 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…
Thousands of fans are expected to converge in Santa Clarita on Sunday for a memorial rally and car cruise to honor Walker who was killed and along with his friend Roger Rodas on November 30.
Investigators are still trying to determine the exact cause of the crash and if mechanical failure was the cause of Rodas to lose control of the high powered Porsche Carrera GT the pair were in.
The results of toxicology tests are not expected for six to eight weeks.
