Paul Walker fans met at the site of the actor’s car wreck this Sunday in the midst of heavy rain to mourn the loss of the actor on the one-year anniversary of his death.

The Fast & Furious franchise star was tragically killed in the passenger’s seat of a Porsche when it hit a pole in Valencia, California.

Paul Walker’s F&F co-stars offered up their grievances and condolences, each posting their own tribute through social media, but perhaps the sweetest of these was from one of Walker’s closest friends and fellow actors Vin Diesel.

Diesel posted a photograph on Facebook of Walker’s daughter, Hania Riley, sitting on her father’s lap during the shooting of one of the films, pairing it with the message:

He was a part of so much in my life… long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel (Diesel’s daughter)… he took a certain pride in being uncle Pablo… after all, we were filming a scene in FF4 (Fast & Furious) the day she was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilical cord. He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood… that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life… A year ago today… a year of mourning… and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo…
