Poor Gary Coleman.

That's too sad. I lived down the street from him as a kid and I always hoped things would turn out better for him...

I really wonder what went down between him and his wife. They have a very volitale relationship.

Syko said...

That is so sad. He never had a good life, and it was too short. I know he has peace, but it seems like he should have gotten more than he did on earth.

I posted at D-Listed last night that I was really hoping this was NOT going to be another "Summer of Death." And .. as is the case with my life right now .. Fate .. God .. Life's timline or whatever has decided .. FU Wil .. let the dying commence!

Damn ... this poor guy had such a shitty ride for his life. I am not really a believer at all .. but for him .. I truly hope there is a better place and not just endless blackness .. because it seems to me that was what this poor soul got in Life.

Godspeed, Gary. I truly hope there is a better place out there for you, my dear.

Poor Gary. Life wasn't kind to him. I hope he's at peace now, wherever he is.

God Bless Gary Coleman. I enjoyed his acting when he was a child.

Kingrey said...

Very sad. He had many hardships in his life. RIP

RocketQueen said...

This makes me sad. I have such fond memories of watching him as a child and I think he had a tough life. RIP Gary.
His wife sure is....something.

I can't say anything different than what anyone else has already said. Very sad. RIP Gary.

MCH said...

Bless his heart...may he rest in peace.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Well that's sad. What's even sadder is that someone will undoubtedly make money off of his death, while he didn't have any.

RIP GARY.... :(

RIP little man.

Why the rush to disconnect him? How did he fall and get this head injury? Wasn't his wife arrested for domestic abuse once? I hope someone is checking this whole thing out. That aside I hope he is in a better place because he didn't have it easy while he was here. Seems like someone was always trying to make a buck off of him. RIP Gary and thanks for the laughs.

Poor guy had such a rough ride. I posted something about his hospitalization in another thread yesterday and at the time, it wasn't looking good :(

Wasn't a day that he worked as a kid when he wasn't in pain.

I liked Paul Petersen's tribute to him at Minor Considerations

So very sad, he never seemed to catch a break after Different Strokes.

Bless his heart.

Adios Gary! RIP dude!

Mooshki said...

What were you saying about the 'summer of death,' Wil? R.I.P. Dennis Hopper. :(

Moonmaid said...

That picture of him getting married seems so incredibly sad. I am not surprised that Paul Peterson has a tribute to him, good for him. Paul Peterson has become an outspoken advocate against the exploitation of children in the entertainment industry. RIP, Gary Coleman.

I really like that last photo of him -- handsome indeed. It must have been hard to be seen as a child long after what little childhood he had had ended.
