It seems like only yesterday when we lost one of our favorite actors. Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow celebrated his birthday with quite the heartfelt throwback photo, and we can’t help but tear up over the tribute. Walker would have turned 44 this year.
Of course, Meadow also used the moment for good. In honor of her dad, she decided to partake in a “random act of kindness” challenge. Like many social media-based challenges, this one is all about paying it forward.
As you can see, the moment she shared included a bit of light-hearted dancing with her dad. Just by looking at the photo, you can tell that Walker was incredibly proud of her.
Walker passed away in November of 2013 in a single-vehicle collision. To this day, his co-stars — especially those who Walker worked with in the Fast and the Furious franchise — have made sure to continuously honor his memory.
While Meadow doesn’t use her Instagram account often, she’s a fan of using it for personal tributes and to announce news revolving around Paul Walker. For example, back in 2015, she shared another touching photo to spread the word about his foundation, which Meadow herself decided to start.
“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions,” she wrote. “His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world.”
We have a feeling that Walker would be so proud of the fact that his daughter has worked so hard to make the world a better place in his memory.
