Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow pays homage to her father seven years after his tragic death.
On Monday, the 22-year-old paid tribute to the late actor by sharing a return photo of the two taking a nap on her Instagram.
“A silly day to remember in sadness. Today is a celebration of the love and happiness you have brought to the world,” she captioned. “Here is a picture of my best mate and I taking a nap.”
In the shot, a young Meadow sleeps against her father’s chest as Walker cradles her in his arms.
Walker’s comrades from The fast and the furious the franchise also graced the star in the comments section, with Tyrese writing, “We love you Meadow! We love you and miss your dad every day ……. Prayers love and light for you angel. …. I don’t know any of it has been easy, especially on days like this ….. -Uncle Ty. “

Walker died in a car crash on November 30, 2013 at the age of 40, just weeks after Meadow turned 15.
A year before his death, Meadow, who had spent most of his childhood living with his mother in Hawaii, decided to move to California and live with his father. During this time, the two have become extremely close.
âHe loved being a dad. He was so proud of her,â his brother Cody told PEOPLE.
Since his death, Meadow has kept his father’s memory alive with the Paul Walker Foundation. Earlier this year, the organization partnered with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to provide children with meals amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Additionally, the model continued to remember her father with moving tributes on social media.

On March 16, Meadow shared a photo of herself as a baby with Walker, who is seen giving her a kiss on the cheek.
âUltimate Apocalypse Buddy,â the model captioned the black and white photo, apparently in reference to the ongoing pandemic and social distancing rules.
In April, Meadow shared an unreleased video of herself surprising her father on her one-year birthday.
“I never thought I would share this,” she wrote in the caption accompanying the video, which showed Walker laughing and clenching his heart after his daughter jumped out of a door to surprise him. “But it was good. Be wise. I love you. Be careful. Xx.”

In June, she shared a cute selfie with Diesel’s three children: daughters Pauline (who goes by Walker’s name), 5, and Similce, 12, as well as her son Vincent, 10.
âFamily, forever,â she captioned the snapshot.
