Tyrese Gibson is handling Paul Walker's passing the best way he knows how.

E! News has learned that the actor is helping his fallen Fast and the Furious costar's family put together funeral arrangements. Tyrese met with both Walker's mother and father Sunday evening to discuss what steps the family will take.

In addition, Tyrese wrote a powerful, heartfelt post on his Facebook page early Tuesday morning.

"Bishop TD Jakes reached out to me today and spoke healing and closure…Then I went online and came across this powerful word he spoke at a recent funeral and the word was ‘I know it feels like death has won,'" he wrote

"I flipped a few words so that it felt more personal to what were all going through right now in this moment and I just wanted to share this…So that we all get a since of closure around Paul's transition and or whoever else you may have lost…Embrace…"

The emotional post went on to say, "In moments like this, it feels like death has won. But the bible says that love is stronger than death…I want you to understand in a very practical and pragmatic way that death has NOT won.

"Your tears may flow. Your pain may come. The flowers will wither. The cards will all be filed away. The phone will stop ringing. You'll be driving down the street one day and you'll hear Paul's voice talking in your head. Something he said or something he did will pop up in your spirit and you'll giggle inside of yourself as if he were sitting in the car with you. And you will find that people you really love, they may leave you outwardly, but they never leave you inwardly...Love will last forever, for God is love."
