Paul Walker's dad: 'We're still in shock'

The father of Paul Walker is still trying to cope with the sudden loss of his beloved son, confessing he's in "shock" and the horror is "not getting any better".

It has been nearly a year since the Fast & The Furious star was killed at the age of 40 in a fatal car accident last November (13), and in an interview with news show Entertainment Tonight, Paul Walker III admitted the entire family is still healing.


He said, "We're very much in shock. I'm missing him more now, the last month. It's not getting any better for me... And the family's in shock. I think that we're afraid to talk to each other. The only thing I can think of is that it hurts too much."


With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next Thursday (27Nov14), it will mark the first time the actor will not be present for the annual family gathering, a time that will be painful for the entire clan.


Walker III admitted, "Well, I'm not looking forward to Thanksgiving. He died two days after that and I guess it'll probably be that way until I'm with him. It's a sad time. We're a very close, loving family and Paul is a piece that's missing now, that we're always going to miss."


He also shared that he often returns to the Santa Clarita, California crash site where his son died, finding comfort in the notes and gifts fans leave in the actor's memory, adding, "One little girl was there, and she goes, 'Are you Paul's dad?' Can I give you a hug?'", before he became emotional with tears.
