Gary Coleman Dies: Post Your Prayers

Gary Coleman
This post has been updated from earlier today
Actor Gary Coleman, 42, most famous for his role as Arnold on the 80s sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes,” has died from a brain hemorrhage. He had been on life support.
A rep for Coleman released this statement: “Thanks to everyone for their well wishing and support during this tragic time. Now that Gary has passed, we know he will be missed because of all the love and support shown in the past couple of days. Gary is now at peace and his memory will be kept in the hearts of those who were entertained by him throughout the years.”
This is the second tragedy around “Diff’rent Strokes” in recent memory. Earlier this month, actress Dana Plato’s 25-year-old son Tyler Lambert committed suicide, almost 11 years after Plato took her own life by overdosing on prescription pills.
