Paul Walker's Funeral Gave Family & Friends a Chance to Pay Final Respects
About two weeks after the tragic car crash that took his life, actor Paul Walker's funeral service took place in LA at the historic Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery this past Saturday, Dec. 14. According to TMZ, the service was reportedly attended by family and close friends of the late star, and the ceremony was brief as Walker's ashes were interred at the cemetery.
As previously reported, Walker's remains were cremated, and released to his family before the funeral service.
In attendance at the event was reportedly Walker's father, Paul Walker Sr., his mother Cheryl Walker, and his brothers Cody Walker and Caleb Walker, in addition to others who were close to the late actor. Walker's Fast & Furious franchise co-stars were reportedly invited to the service, as well.
On the day of the ceremony, Walker's good friend and co-star Tyrese posted a message on Instagram to honor Walker:
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 own understandings...... 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 all the moments we DID have, 13 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•
Walker's family plans to hold another memorial service for Walker in the near future, "for more people that were close to Paul." This service will also be invitation-only, and, as E! Online reports, no media will be allowed in attendance.
