A Tribute to Paul Walker from the "Fast & Furious" franchise.

On the same day that actor Paul Walker's autopsy results were released, days after he was killed in a car crash, the team behind the "Fast & Furious" franchise is paying tribute to Walker with a new video.

The video shows Walker in his run throughout the series, lasting over a decade, with Walker appearing in five of the six films to date and scheduled to appear in the seventh before his death. The video was released on the "Fast & Furious" YouTube channel and promoted on the film franchise's social media outlets.

The video actually features a lot more talk from his co-star Vin Diesel than Walker himself, given Diesel's character Dominic Toretto's tendency to be the one pontificating in a series that ultimately has a lot more to do with family than car racing.

After all the Walker beauty shots with the song "Coming Home" by Diddy-Dirty Money featuring Skylar Grey playing underneath it, it ends with a still of Walker and the words "In Loving Memory." It's a song that deals with death and going to a better place, seemingly fit to the situation.

In the video's "about" section, it's noted that Walker's family has asked for donations to his charity.

Paul 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).

They ask for donations to be made at the Reach Out Worldwide website.

The future of the franchise remains in question; will you go see "Fast & Furious 7," currently incomplete and in need of some rewrites without Walker to complete several scenes? Let us know in the comments.
