Today is Paul Walker's birthday. This beautiful human being was taken from us in the most tragic of accidents, but our pain shouldn't stop us remembering the man he was.

Someone who feels his loss the most keenly is Vin Diesel. More than a co-star - more than a friend, even - Vin called Paul 'my brother Pablo'.

Today feels like a day to take another look at some of Vin's most touching tributes to his brother, Paul Walker.

Vin Stays Strong For Fans

Vin was one of the first to visit the site of Paul Walker's tragic crash, and he held it together to thank fans. What a man.


'My brother Pablo'

Vin's taken to Facebook to share his messages of love and unity with Paul Walker, but this is the one I keep coming back to. Beautiful words.

You have always been so supportive, especially in these past two months... So, I wanted to share something personal that I worked on through the New Year, in honor of my brother Pablo... Paul.


Vin's Emotional Speech For Award He Won With Paul

There's no shame in tears, big man. The best way to deal with emotion is to share it. Another lovely speech from the heart.


Paul Walker's Mother

Vin Diesel's a strong guy, but everyone needs some help through grief. One thing's for sure - Paul Walker's mom sounds like an incredible lady.

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...


Vin Diesel Expresses His Love For Paul Perfectly

The brotherhood in Paul Walker was something completely different...we grew up in the business together...he was my partner.

I’ve been acting all my life and they don’t teach you in acting, how to mourn someone and simultaneously pretend they’re in a scene with you.

Everyone has 'darker moments' in their journey, Vin. Thank you for sharing your tributes to Paul Walker. Together, we'll remember.
