It's so sad when your childhood icons pass away...
I just learned that today Merlin Olsen, who played Jonathon Garvey on Little House on the Prairie passed away. I always thought he was the nicest man next to Charles Ingalls on that show. My dad once gave me a Merlin Olsen Pro-Football trading card! I still have it!
And of course how sad that Corey Haim died?! I think things were a little tough for him and I feel bad for the way his life turned out. So very sad. I first remember seeing him in Lucas and loving his lovable dorkiness. And then I loved him the "Corey" movies! Licenced to Drive, Lost Boys and Dream a Little Dream. I saw that movie in the theatre a few times and thought the Coreys were sooo cool!
Well anyway... so sad how his life had to end. :(
