Paul Walker’s father has expressed the heartbreak he feels over his son’s untimely death.
“I’m just glad that every time I saw him, I told him I loved him. And he said the same thing to me,” Paul Walker Sr. said to CBS2’s Greg Mills.
“His heart was so big,” Walker Sr. added, “I was proud of him every day of his life.”
Walker Sr. and his wife raised Paul and his three siblings in Sunland, Calif. “His brothers are all taking it pretty hard,” he added.
