Paul Walker died on November 30, but his death is still being mourned by Vin Diesel, who has called the late actor a brother.

The pair starred in the ‘Fast & Furious” film series together, and were close.

Vin Diesel posted a photo on Facebook of him and Walker laughing together.

“There was always moments of child-like laughter,” said Vin Diesel.

“We had accomplished so much by 2013…

“P.s. The complexities of Brotherhood, and the painful void… of it’s absence.”

Diesel previously shared on his page that “Fast & Furious 7,” which was in the middle of filming when Walker died in a car crash, will be released on April 10, 2015.

“He’d want you to know first,” Diesel said, referring to Walker.

Diesel also described flying to Walker’s mother’s home after he heard of the death.

“I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs,” he said.

“His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry… I said sorry? You’re the mother who lost a son?… She said yes, but you lost your other half…”
