Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Leads Family And Friends In Final Tribute To Star On Santa Barbara Beach

Paul Walker's friends and family gathered in Santa Barbara on Monday for a final goodbye to the Fast and Furious actor who tragically died earlier this month, with a beachside memorial.

Taking place two days after his funeral on Saturday, his 15 year-old daughter Meadow, as well as his parents and sibling were joined by co-stars from his Fast and Furious family including Tyrese Gibson on the sand as they played football and gathered to remember the 40 year-old.

Santa Barbaba appeared a fitting location for a tribute to the star, as he'd made his home nearby, with daughter Meadow. The teenager had moved to California just a year before to get to know her father better.

Just weeks ago, Walker had gushed about getting to know his daughter to US Weekly, saying: "I'm glad I had her at 25, because at 40 and 15, we're matching up sweet. It's just working,"

"It's perfect," he added.

The beloved star was laid to rest at the Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles on Saturday in a private ceremony attended by only his closest friends and family. Following the service around 200 people attended a memorial on the Universal lot, where his father Paul Walker Snr, his siblings and manager Matt Luber led the tributes to the star, E! News reports.

Musician Ben Harper also performed in memory of the actor, the touching memorial lasting two hours. A source told E! it had been an emotional day for all: "There was a lot of crying"

"It was just very sad."

Taking to Instagram Tyrese posted an emotional tribute Walker calling his late co-star the "worlds bestfriend" (sic).

"Today In a room full of your loved ones I wish today was your wedding instead.... God has a better plan even beyond ALL of our own understandings," he wrote on the social networking site.

"For selfish reasons we all wanted you to stay, another laugh, another take, another talk, another moment..... I guess you can't get all you ask for in life.... But our hearts are FULL from all the moments we DID have, 13 years of laughter and grace, humility and love..... "Never did I take my access for granted.... Continue praying for his #Family, his daughter #Meadow, you are the WORLDS best friend that's why we're all feeling it... #RIHAW Rest In Heaven Angel Walker,"

Ludacris also posted an image from the memorial which showed a smiling picture of the star, with the message "Always in our hearts...."

Reflecting on the sad day, Michelle Rodriguez wrote on Twitter: "I said goodbye to a great man today, a man I never got to show just how much I love his spirit and his golden heart, ‘stay golden pony boy'...

"I hope you get my tweet in heaven, ps your right; 'stop talking just do it already';) Love you Paul, your departure is fuel to my fire, well meet again, enjoy that light."

Filming on Fast and Furious 7 is currently on hiatus following the death of Walker, however it was confirmed last week the film will eventually be finished, with his brother considered as a stand in for Paul's scenes.
