Pablo, this weekend you turned the world into a family...Thanks for the love...

Posted by Vin Diesel on Sunday, April 5, 2015

The most unexpected part of Furious 7 — a movie built on surprises — was the film's grief. Even though the movie is a lot of fun, it was also a goodbye to the late Paul Walker. And you could tell that this group of people — both the stars in front of the camera and the crew behind it — really loved this man.

On Monday, Vin Diesel, Walker's co-star, shared a music video for the song "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth from the film's soundtrack. The video is a touching tribute to Walker, showcasing clips from the previous installments in the franchise along with a few shots from the new movie, including the film's final goodbye scene.

"It's been a long day without you, my friend / And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again," Puth sings in a fragile falsetto, a contrast to Khalifa's gravelly verses.

The song is both hopeful and sad, and the video makes you remember the friendships, relationships, and love Walker shared with the people he worked with. It really is a beautiful goodbye.
