'Fast & Furious' Crew Invited

EXCLUSIVE

Paul Walker
's funeral will be private ... for family only, and in Paul's world his movie's cast and crew is part of the brood.

Sources connected with Paul's family tell TMZ ... their biggest concern is Paul's 15-year-old daughter Meadow, who is understandably having a difficult time.  They don't want a bunch of strangers surrounding the girl, because she needs to feel comfortable to grieve.

So the funeral will be by invitation only, and Paul felt the folks on the "Fast & Furious" cast and crew were close relatives.  He was with them a lot and bonded with most of them.

The family is also aware ... the cast and crew are grieving just like them, and the funeral will help them cope.

It's unclear when the funeral will take place.  Family sources tell TMZ ... sometime after the funeral there will be a larger memorial, but still by invitation only.

And I'm sure TMZ will be on the Invitation Only list and will then post 150 more stories about it.

Sources connect to Paul's family? Ya, I don't think so, TMZ, in the same paragraph they claim they are trying to protect Meadow. If this were "TRUE" no one from that family, or connected to it would be talking to you especially after you've beaten this story from North, South, West and East and then some. Nice try, the REAL STORY IS the family is holding a service but not telling anyone, that was at 11 am this morning on the news. Here you are trying to claim you have insider info. The family will bury Paul as they chose without all you lowlifes knowing about it. THERE IS NO SOURCES connected to the Walker family, if there were, all those threads you've been posting since his death you would've been posting so called "INSIDER/SOURCES close to the family" info.

Older brother hung himself when I was fourteen.

We weren't allow to refer to it as a suicide.

So I started high school, was in shock, was going through puberty -

And not allowed to tell the truth about what I saw and found that fateful late July day.

That's why I recommend therapy/grieving to Meadow.

Don't take a chance, girl -

Let them lead you through this don't do it yourself.

Almost killed me - for 15 months life in slo-mo - shock.

There's a problem here    

I'm really hoping that will pretty much wrap it up and TMZ can move on to suck the life (no pun) out of someone else. Kris probably has a huge list of people to get started on by now.

May there be an outpouring of love and camaraderie during the Memorial Services.

May we all be inspired.

To GO for things in the same REFUSE TO LOSE-mode

-that characterized both Paul and Roger.

Green-with-envy are the haters here -

Why Paul and not them.

Why Roger and not the haters.

It's easy, Haters - change.

Oh, that's right - change takes courage.

Too much hard work.

Easier to type-away in darkness.

We can all pitch in and do Paul a memorial in our own special way. It is just a matter of getting the ball rolling. It could even be done the same day that he is laid to rest.

My heart goes out to the family & friends, may he rest in peace. RIP ~ Paul Walker
