Rest in peace, Paul Walker. The entertainment industry has lost a true star. Thank you for your part in a movie franchise that my father and I have bonded over for years; it won’t be the same without you. It’s cruel that you had to die while doing something to raise charity money for relief in the Philippines, but your eerily foreboding sentiment (unconfirmed) brought a slight smile to my face:
"If one day the speed kills me, do not cry, because I was smiling." - Paul Walker
Life is bitterly unfair. As an atheist I cannot truthfully say the common comforts “you’re in a better place” or “you’re looking down on us,” but I like to think that you’ve just been reabsorbed into the cosmos that we all came from in the first place. I hope your family, friends, and fans find solace knowing that you died doing something that you loved, raising money to help others, and that the legacy you have left behind is a wonderful one.
We will miss you.
