Corey Feldman Pens Letter To The Late Corey Haim

Pop culture fans around the world were shocked last week when it was announced that actor Corey Haim died of an apparent overdose, according to LAPD. The 80s pop icon was just 38 years old. Haim became an 80s teen idol and starred in films such as Silver Bullet, Lucas and License to Drive. He was at the top of his game when he co-starred in The Lost Boys, alongside Corey Feldman.

The late actor will be laid to rest north of the city on Tuesday afternoon (3/16) in a private ceremony with family As Haim is set to be laid to rest, Corey Feldman has penned an open letter to his late friend and co-star via his official blog. Here is what he had to say:

Dear Corey,

Corey Haim

This is for you on the day of your funeral. First off I am so sorry I am not there with you today. By that I mean my physical body is not with your physical body. However you know that my heart is right at your side. You also know the only reason I am truly not there is out of respect for your mother and her wishes to minimize the media attention as much as possible. I want your family to have a calm peaceful day. Hopefully we will not see one shot of the funeral on the news. Just know I am at home today projecting positive energy for you and your passing.

I miss you so much already. When I think of something funny I don’t know who to tell it to. I find myself trying to call you but then remember your not there. I think about the new movies we will soon be doing together and then suddenly realise that the dream is over. I always feared this day would come, and often rehearsed how to face it. But once confronted with the reality of it, it’s so much more painful than I could have ever imagined. Nobody will ever understand the brotherhood we shared. Nobody will ever get the inside jokes we told. Nobody will understand the magic of 22/222 . Nobody will ever know how to do the secret Corey handshake. Nobody will ever make me laugh as hard as you did. Nobody will ever make me fight as hard as you did. Nobody will ever challenge me the way you did. Nobody will ever need me the way you did.

My mission in life became saving yours. I never gave up, I tried …I walked away, but I always came back, to let you know I was there. In a dark and lonely world with spiteful angry people we always understood each others pain. I have been so hounded by the media and barraged with condolences since your death that I have not been given my own time to grief. I was still in shock while cameras were chasing me down the street looking for my feelings on the matter. When I did Larry King I could barely form sentences, but knew I had to be strong to send a message.

I never knew your death would have such a huge impact on the world. I learned something Corey, there are a lot of people out there who really love you, and appreciate the joy you have brough tho their hearts. I only wish you could see the way the world is mourning over your absence. I wish you could see how big the story is. I wish you could see your face finally filling the cover of People magazine and Entertainment Weekly! That would have meant so much to you. It is such a shame they all had to wait until you were gone to give you the respect you were due as an actor which is what you truly were. The great Canadian actor Corey Haim! I love you and I will forever keep that ring close to my heart. I will do my very best to help give you a memorial that is a celebration of your life the way you would have wanted it…..with everybody laughing and rocking out!

My heart is so broken and I know there are so many who feel the same way I do. We will remember your spirit and your fans will help me keep your legacy alive.

I pray that you are safe and warm and finally filled with peace.

I love you

CF Core Feldog DAWG C-DOG KID and every other name you used to call me…..dine!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE out of respect for Corey Haim & his family PLEASE let them have a peaceful, quiet funeral without all the media. His soul was lost, but his heart was filled with love. It’s terribly sad that actors who REALLY are talented and well deserving to share their love for the spotlight, many don’t get the credit they so deserve till they are gone. GOD BLESS the Haim family & GOD BLESS you Corey Feldman- I know your heart is filled with such sadness right now, but one day your sadness will turn into nothing but sweet fond memories of your friend- your brother. He will be looking down on you today & SMILING that famous crooked grin! GOD BLESS! Rest in peace precious Corey Iam Haim! WE love you!

    That is so heart warming…I never had the opportunity to share as many years as you did with him but your friendship describes what I once knew and expected never disappeared. I stand right beside you today being one who knew him before becoming an actor. My thoughts are right with you today..rip Corey

    Actor Brooke McCarter (from The Lost Boys — The one that Haim said “looked like Twisted Sister”) did an excellent tribute to Corey Haim at Monster Mania this past weekend. The video tribute he put together is up on his site, which you can check out at http://www.brookemccarter.com/

    Brooke McCarter is a class act.

    Corey Haim has never waivered…and never will.He was a very sweet and

    That letter really touched my heart. I never knew those two were such great friends. I got to meet Corey Haim last year at a horror movie convention. He was so nice he gave me a discount on his picture cause I didn’t have much money left to buy his autograph but I really wanted to meet him. I’m glad I did. He was a very sweet guy.

    Of all the combined celebrities that had passed on, from when I became a fan of celebrities over 5 decades ago. Corey Haim’s passing was the only one that had effected me (tearfully) the most As a fan to a marvelous actor and from one human being to another, I dearly loved Corey very much so. I was really pulling for him to live past his 30th decade by living a longer life and that he would stay off drugs. No doubt he committed himself to stay off the drugs in order to make a wonderful comeback by making films again. Corey was a very talented and excellent actor who would be missed by all of his fans, and especially by Corey Feldman who had in life a very special and extremely close friendship and the special love of brotherhood toward Corey, which no doubt, was mutual and being everlasting, as well, between The Two Corey’s. Also, even though Corey was Jewish, as is my husband, I really hope that during his life on earth that he became a believer of Christ and that he had accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour, like I had done decades ago, which my husband had not done so. It would be a wonderful thing for Corey to finally have the kind of peace that may have alluded him in life and that he would find that kind of peace, including love, in Christ. Also, Corey would have a very happy, joyful life, which may have alluded him in his earthly life, and that he would have a very beautiful and fulfilling life with God which would be everlasting throughout eternity. May Corey rest in peace in the loving arms of God forever.
