Corey Feldman took to his official blog today to announce some sad news — there will be no public memorial for his late best friend Corey Haim.
“I must be the bearer of some very disappointing news to many of you out there. After weeks of consideration and planning, the ultimate decision has been made by Corey’s mother Judy Haim to not go forward with a public memorial service,” Corey wrote on his blog, after thanking fans for all of their support.
“Instead we will have a very small private dinner with just a few close friends in LA. Her reasoning for this is that she is in tremendous grief and feels that to create an event celebrating Corey’s life would be too much for her to bear at this time,” he continued.
“She did ask me to convey to you that she has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of your support and wants you to keep Corey alive by visiting his website at www.coreyhaim.us If there are any statements to be made, or events planned, or any other Corey Haim related news it will be posted there at his site.”
Corey Feldman said he had envisioned a memorial which would give his friends and fans an opportunity to “grieve together” as one.
“I must respect the wishes of his mother, and help her in any way I can through this difficult time. Ultimately that is what Corey would have wanted more than anything. To know that his mother is at peace as much as possible in his absence.”
The Canadian acto was found dead in the early morning of March 10 in his Oakwood, Calif., home after allegedly suffering a drug overdose. The 38-year-old star was reportedly discovered unresponsive at his home by his distraught mother Judy.
The ’80s teen idol starred in beloved flicks such as The Lost Boys (1987) and License to Drive (1988) opposite fellow teen actor and best friend Feldman.
Haim and Feldman maintained their friendship throughout the years, and made their Hollywood comeback in 2007 in the A&E reality show, The Two Coreys.
