On Sunday June 6th, the upcoming F9 star was reminded of his late co-star and friend when Paul’s only child was 22 years old Meadow hikersShe sent him a touching throwback photo. In the picture, Vin and Paul are perfectly coordinated as they smile in black shirts and similar sunglasses.

“Weeks before the release of F9 … in preproduction for the finale, which will only start in months,” Vin explained in the caption of his Instagram post. “@meadowwalker send me this picture and tell me how happy she feels about the photo.”

“Of course,” he continued, “one is filled with emotion, determination and ultimately gratitude. Eternal brotherhood is a blessing that cannot be expressed in words.”

The blockbuster star finished captioning: “Hope to make you proud … Love, always.” The heartbreaking image has garnered more than 2 million likes since then, including a simple but ultra-cute comment from Meadow: “I love you.”
