When I turned on my laptop this afternoon, I saw a news flash that this young actor had been killed in an automobile accident today. At first, I thought maybe it was one of those internet hoaxes, but minutes later, the sad and tragic news had been reported from some very reliable news sources. It wasn’t until I had read that his publicist had released a statement that the news was true that my mind finally accepted it. I didn’t know Paul William Walker IV, but I along with millions around the world was familiar with his work. I especially enjoyed his Fast & Furious movies. Paul left us way too soon, yet he had accomplished so much in 40 years. He made a living doing something that he enjoyed: acting. I felt that I had to post something as I am way to familiar with losing a child. Of course his parents may never see it, but then again, maybe somebody on Facebook knows them, and will send it to them. I thought I’d post it here as well. From my Facebook page:
On behalf of millions of Paul’s fans, please know that your son Paul William Walker IV, entertained countless people around the world in his movies. and gave great joy to many. He will be truly missed, yet he left behind a legacy of his work on film for us to enjoy. For that, I say, thank you Paul! Rest in peace my young brother. You have truly gone too soon.
