Paul Walker's mum said he would have stayed at home if not for text message

Paul Walker's mum said he would have stayed at home if not for text message

His mum has previously shared details about the day he died

Paul Walker’s heartbroken mum shared details about her son’s final day in a documentary.

The Fast and the Furious star would have turned 50 this week, but his life was cut tragically short on 30 November 2013 when he was involved in a car accident after leaving a charity event.

His mum Cheryl has previously spoken about the morning her son passed away and described him being in good spirits and suggested that he wouldn’t have been out that night had he not had a text message reminding him about the event.

Speaking on the documentary I Am Paul Walker, Cheryl explained how Walker was in high spirits on the morning of his death.

She detailed how he was sat in the kitchen talking about his excitement at seeing his daughter, Meadow, while on a break from filming Furious 7. They were making plans to pick out a Christmas tree and decorate it that night.

Cheryl said: "We were having this good conversation, and he'd forgotten about an event he had. He got a text and said 'Oh my gosh, I'm supposed to be somewhere'."

She told The Dr Oz Show: "He was in my home, he left to go to the event, and so I was expecting him back in the early afternoon, evening. And we had plans with his daughter, too, to decorate a Christmas tree that night."

That was the moment Walker left to get to the event which had been set up by his charity Reach Out and was hoping to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

After he left the fundraising event that afternoon, the car he was travelling in with his financial advisor, Roger Rodas, 38, crashed into a concrete lamppost before catching fire and exploding.

Speaking to People, Cheryl explained how she's keen to make sure people know exactly who her son was.

She said: "I think so many people think, 'Oh, he was just a movie star who was killed in a car accident. But there was so much more to him. That was just a piece of who he was. He was an amazing man.

"I've gotten letters from people all over the world who said he made a difference in their lives. That is such a blessing. He's never forgotten."

Earlier today, Meadow paid tribute to her dad to commemorate his birthday.

Sharing a snap of them together on Instagram, she wrote: "Happy birthday to my guardian angel.

"Thank you for your love, guidance, friendship, sunshine and for raising me to see all of the beauty in the world.

"You are the most kind, humble, generous and caring soul I know.

"You taught me at a young age to always treat everyone with respect, to do good and to take care of our planet.

"I love you and miss you every day."
