It's going to be a very difficult time for the loved ones, colleagues and fans of the late Paul Walker. Following the 40-year-old Fast and the Furious star's tragic death in a Santa Clarita, Calif. car crash on Saturday Nov. 30, a makeshift memorial has popped up where Walker died. After co-hosting a charity event, Walker went for a spin with a friend, Roger Rodas, in Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT; both men lost their lives when Rodas lost control of the sports car and slammed into a tree.
Among the mourners visiting the site on Sunday was Tyrese Gibson, one of Walker's costars in the Fast and Furious franchise. Paying his respects and clutching flowers for his friend, the actor, 34, broke down in tears as he examined the memorial, as evidenced in a heartbreaking video.
"My heart is hurting so bad . . . no one can make me believe this is real," Gibson tweeted on Saturday following the shocking news. "Father God I pray that you send clarity over this cause I just don't understand My heart hurts it's broken no one can convince me that this is real.... Prayer warriors please pray real hard for his only child, his daughter and family... "
Walker is survived by Meadow, his 15-year-old daughter with an ex-girlfriend. Gibson also Instagrammed a screenshot of his last round of text messages with his friend, where the two men exchanged silly banter and Thanksgiving wishes. "I love you and I'm thankful and appreciate the love and hugs that never stop," Gibson wrote to Walker, who replied, "Hahaah xoxx"
"At least I got to say I love you," Gibson continued. "…. #OurLastExchange but our laughs and moments will live forever #ThisIsWorstThanMyWorstNightmare #GodiLoveYouAndiwillneverquestionYou....
Although an investigation into the crash is ongoing, authorities have indicated that excessive speed may have been a factor in the accident.

this is sf sad. usually i'd be against the video, but i think some jerks (especially the ones making f&f related jokes or asking who cares) out there need to see the reality of it. paul seemed like a great guy and i'm still in legit shock that this has happened.
