Corey Feldman Pens Moving Open Letter To Corey Haim

Corey Feldman wrote an emotional message to his late pal and co-star Corey Haim on the day of his funeral, telling his tragic friend how his "heart is so broken" since his death last week.
The "Lost Boys" star was found unconscious at his mother's home in Los Angeles in the early hours of Wednesday morning and pronounced dead on arrival at St. Joseph's hospital in Burbank, California.
Family and close friends gathered to bid farewell to Haim at a private burial in his native Toronto, Canada on Tuesday, but his regular film collaborator Feldman decided to stay away from the memorial to ensure the event remained low-key.
However, Feldman expressed his pain over Haim's passing in a moving post on his official blog.
He writes, "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... 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 realize 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...
"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."
