Hours after his funeral on Saturday, the “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker was honored in an additional memorial held at a soundstage on the Universal lot. About 200 people gathered to honor the late actor, according to E! News.
The 40-year-old actor’s remains were cremated and his ashes buried during a private service earlier at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, in the Hollywood Hills.
Walker’s “Fast & Furious” co-stars Tyrese, Ludacris and Michelle Rodriguez were just a few of the stars to attend the memorial that was closed to the media. Ben Harper sang an emotional song in Walker’s memory.
A source told E! News “there was a lot of crying” during the service that lasted about two hours. “It was just very sad.”
Following the memorial, Walker’s co-star Rodriguez took to Twitter to share a touching tribute.
“I said goodbye to a great man today, a man I never got to show just how much I love his spirit and his golden heart, “stay golden pony boy” … I hope you get my tweet in heaven, ps your right; ‘stop talking just do it already’;) Love you Paul, your departure is fuel to my fire, well meet again, enjoy that light,” the actress tweeted.
Tyrese posted an image of Walker on Instagram.
“Today in a room full of your loved ones I wish today was your wedding instead… God has a better plan even beyond ALL of our understandings,” he captioned the picture. “For selfish reasons we all wanted you to stay, another laugh, another take, another talk, another moment… I guess you can’t get all you ask for in life…. But our hearts are FULL from the moments we DID have, 12 years of laughter and grace, humility and love…. Never did I take my access for granted…. Continue praying for his #Family, his daughter #Meadow, you are the WORLDS best friend that’s why we’re all feeling it… #RIHAW Rest In Heaven Angel Walker.”
Ludacris also took to Instagram, posting a picture of Walker that was titled with the words "Always in our hearts..."
