Vin Diesel Speaks at Paul Walker Memorial, Thanks Fans For Loving "Angel in Heaven"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Vin Diesel gave an emotional speech at the Paul Walker crash site and makeshift memorial Monday night, addressing the throng of fans who have gathered there.

Paul's co-star in the Fast and the Furious films addressed his fellow mourners, thanking them for "showing that angel in heaven how much you appreciate him."

Diesel and Walker considered each other close friends off camera, and it showed as Vin spoke to the star's fans with a heavy heart. Check out the clip:

When Vin arrived at the site, an officer allowed him to use the loudspeaker from a police car to address the crowd with his short but heartfelt speech.

"To show the love that you have shown Paul," an emotional Diesel told Walker's fans, speaking for so many of them, "it's gonna stay with me forever."

No doubt Paul Walker's father would approve, and agree.

After the speech, TMZ asked Vin about the future of the movie franchise, and he replied, "I can't even think about anything but the loss of a loved one."

Like Tyrese before him, the loss of Paul is clearly hitting Vin and the rest of the Fast family especially hard. Just imagine the actor's actual family.

All of this goes to show what a beloved person he was by all who knew him and even those who didn't. Paul Walker just exuded a certain goodness.

Fast and Furious 7 is understandably on hold following the actor's death, but he just finished his latest film Hours, which hits theaters next weekend.

He talks about it in one of his last interviews (below), telling Movie Fanatic that the experience ranks among the best in not only his career, but his life:
