It’s been seven years since actor Paul Walker, most known for his role as Brian O’conner in The Fast and the Furious franchise, had died in a car accident while driving with his friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas. Honoring what should have been his 47th birthday, his daughter Meadow posted a heartwarming tribute on her Instagram account.

The 21-year-old meadow posted a picture of Walker holding her when she was a baby. She captioned the picture: “the moment I realized we are twins. happy birthday to the most beautiful soul.”

In a separate post, Meadow announced a “do good challenge” in honor of her dad. “In honor of my dad’s birthday, I’m kicking off our annual do good challenge,” she wrote. “This year, I’m keeping it simple and close to my heart. I am so blessed to be in love with my best friends.”

Walker’s accident had occurred while the 7th Fast and Furious film was being shot. The incident spawned one of the most touching scenes in the testosterone-fueled action franchise in which Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto, is driving by O’conner on a mountain road until they reach a fork in the road and part ways.
