Rodriguez later shared a photo from Walker’s official page which says that Walker’s family “appreciates the outpouring of love and goodwill from his many fans and friends. They have asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul’s charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Donations can easily be made through their website.”

“When you put good will out there it’s amazing what can be accomplished,” Walker is quoted as saying on the picture.
