Paul's brother Cody and Paul Walker Sr. are ready to move forward and plans to honor the actor in a private ceremony surrounded by family and close friends, including the "Fast and the Furious" family. According to TMZ, the private funeral will be invitation only to protect the privacy of Paul's daughter Meadow.
"They want to make sure that everyone who wants to mourn will be together and all schedules match. They hopefully will have more of an idea next week," says a source to HollywoodLife.com about the funeral arrangements.
Meadow Rain Walker is only 15 years old and Paul's family will make sure that funeral will be as private as possible. "Meadow's heartbroken and grieving but she's showing an incredible amount of strength," says the source.
"Everyone is amazed by how strong she is. Her family is all focused on looking after her and protecting her, but she's actually helping them. She has a very strong spirit, just like Paul, and it's been a huge blessing for everyone to have her close," adds the source.
Even in this difficult time, Meadow has become an "incredible" source of support and inspiration for the Walker's family. She is planning to honor his dad's legacy by keeping his charity "Reach Out Worldwide" (ROWW) and will continue to help victims of calamities.
"She's already talking about how she wants to honor her dad by making sure that his charity keeps going," adds the source. "That's his legacy and the thing that he was most proud of, besides Meadow, so she's really committed to making sure it lives on."
Indeed, she is her father's daughter. At such a young age, Meadow has his father's strong spirit and has been a huge blessing to everyone around her. Now she is turning her grief into something beneficial by carrying on her father's legacy.
