Days after “Fast & Furious” fans came out in droves to memorialize the late Paul Walker over the weekend, his family plans to mourn their loss with a private funeral.
According to the “L.A. Times,” Walker’s remains were released by the L.A. County coroner’s office to his family for their memorial.
The coroner determined earlier this month that the star was killed from a combination of “traumatic injuries and burns” after the Porsche his friend Roger Rodas was driving crashed on November 30.
Thousands of Walker devotees attended an unofficial memorial in Santa Clarita on Sunday, near the crash site that claimed the life of the 40-year-old actor.
While an exact number of attendees has not been confirmed, more than 8,000 people agreed to attend the “memorial meet” on Facebook.
Many came in stylish cars to honor the car-loving Walker, and some even came holding signs. As the “New York Times” reports, the actor is credited as saying, “If one day the speed kills me, do not cry, because I was smiling.”
