Gary Coleman 1968-2010

Here is Mark Hapka (Nathan, DAYS) posing with his friend and co-worker Gary Coleman during the premiere of "Midgets Vs. Mascots" at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival.  They had both acted in this film, a documentary which follows 10 contestants as they compete for 1 million dollars in prize money.

Last night, Gary Coleman tragically died at the age of 42 after suffering a brain haemorrhage earlier this week after a fall from his home.  Gary will be remembered for his roles in the ground-breaking classic TV series, THE JEFFERSONS, GOOD TIMES and DIFF'RENT STROKES.

Here is Mark's statement on his Facebook page about Gary:  "I'm seriously heart broken at the loss of our friend Gary Coleman. Not only because of his death but how miserably he spent his final days. There was such an amazing soul in that man that everyone buried with their words and their ways. I know God saw it and will have mercy on his soul. The pain is over my friend! We love and will miss you! God Bless! RIP"

The Diva wishes condolence for Mark during this time of loss as well as to Gary's family.
