This is so sad. Everything I’ve read about him indicates he was as beautiful inside as he was out. I came across one of his movies at Walmart yesterday and ended up putting it back at the last minute. I went back this morning for it; it suddenly became must-have for me.

I still find it strange that TMZ and other sources were reporting this death before it even happened. I wish people would question the mainstream media instead of blindly accepting every story they are force fed. Whatever the truth is…it is a sad siuation all around…especially for walker’s teenage daughter.

R.I.P Paul. May his daughter have the strength and courage to bear the tragic, sudden, and untimely loss of her dear dad. Gone way too soon. Guess, D does not distinguish and waits for no one: young or old; rich or poor; famous or unknown; successful or struggling….

What’s so strange is that I just saw his movie TFTF1 for the first time on the same day that he died. Can’t believe the timing.

To the Walker family,
With sincere condolences RIP Paul.
