Paul Walker was beloved by millions, but it's his teenage daughter who will miss him the most. A source tells E! News exclusively that Meadow Walker is "still in shock" in the wake of her father's sudden and tragic passing on Saturday, Nov. 30.

The source says that Meadow is leaning on her mom and other relatives. "Friends have flown in to be with her. She is in OK spirits and dealing with it the best she can for a 15 year old. She is surrounded by family and friends and they are trying comfort her and help her get through this."

"Everyone is taking it hard, but there has been a large outpouring of love and support for the family," the source adds.

Roger Rodas, a grand prix driver who was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, also died on the scene. Jim Torp attended the 40-year-old actor's Reach Out Worldwide charity event that day and said the two friends decided to go for a "joy ride." Shortly after, attendees heard a "massive explosion" outside.

Charity has always been important to the star, who was raised in a Mormon household.

"Paul never made a spectacle of his relief efforts nor did he want any media/tabloid attention," a second insider says. "There is so much to say about a man who unconditionally loved his family and friends as well as people whom he did not know. He was such a modest/giving person."

The insider adds, "November 30 marks a tragic lost of an actor/father/son/brother/friend."
