The sheer shock of seeing Meadow at his door was enough to have him holding his hand to his heart, taking in his celebratory moment.

“Happy Birthday,” Meadow said to her father.

Paul replied by saying, “You just scared the hell out of me. What the hell are you doing? Oh, man!”

Paul fell on top of a bed and meadow ran into his arms, screeching with delight. The two were seen embracing one another, and the video cut as they lay on the bed in a tight hug.

The famous actor died in a fiery crash at the age of 40. He was a passenger in a Porsche Carrera GT believed to be driven by his friend Roger Rodas in Santa Clarita, California. The pair co-owned a high-performance car shop located just a few hundred yards away from the scene of the crash and were traveling together after hosting a charity event, according to ATI. Rodas reportedly lost control of the vehicle while driving at 100 miles per hour, causing the Porsche to hit a curb, a tree and a light post. The car then reportedly burst into flames.
