Paul Walker star of the “Fast & Furious” movie franchise, died at 40 also on November 30, 2013 in a Valencia California fiery car crash. Walker worked with legends Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Ludacris; just to name a few. Paul was a philanthropist for the organization "Reach Out World Wide". Paul Walker is survived by daughter Meadow Walker.

And today (December 5, 2013), the former president of South Africa Nelson Mandela went home to be with the Lord at the ripe old age of 95, in his home in Johannesburg, South Africa. According to IMD6, Nelson Mandela was known as the leader of the African National Congress (ANC) and for his lifelong struggle against apartheid (enforced racial separation), which was instituted in South Africa in 1948. The ANC was soon declared a terrorist organization and banned by the South African government. Mandela was arrested in 1962 and imprisoned for life on "terrorist" charges, but in 1990 he was freed by South African president F.W. de Klerk. In 1994 he was elected president of South Africa. Mandela is survived by his spouse, Graça Machel and six children.

British star Idris Elba plays the lead in a film adaptation of Mandela's autobiography entitled, "Long Walk To Freedom" that was released this November.

Please pray that the families of these fine men find peace from the loss of husband, father and friend. May Paul, Paul and Nelson - #RIP.
