Don’t you think Corey needs to be at his best friend’s funeral to properly say goodbye?

This is so sad! Although Corey Feldman and Corey Haim were friends for over twenty years, Corey F.won’t be saying his goodbye at his pal’s funeral in Toronto, Canada March 16.

Corey, 38, released the following statement March 15:

“In the days following my best friend Corey Haim’s death, I have spent much time with his mother Judy, who has always been like a mother to me. I would love nothing more than to be by her side at Corey’s funeral, however, due to their strong religious beliefs and need for privacy, the family has decided to make Corey’s funeral on Tuesday a small private affair. Understanding the recent media attention and to be respectful of the family’s wishes, I have decided not to attend,” he continues in the statement. “Instead, I will remain in Los Angeles quietly mourning and planning his memorial. As a sign of respect, I am asking the media to honor Corey Haim by making the same choice. I am working with a few people who were close to Corey to put a memorial together within the next month. At that time, the media will be invited to honor and celebrate the legacy he has left behind, along with friends, fans and the rest of the Hollywood community.” According to E! Online Haim’s rep says the Feldman-planned LA memorial service will happen around April 2.

Even though Corey Haim’s mother plead with the city of Toronto to pay for the funeral, the city will not be footing the bill. Instead, celebrity memorabilia site Startifacts.com will pay for most of the service.

Canadian-born Haim starred in the films Murphy’s RomanceThe Lost BoysLicense to Driveand Dream a Little Dream. He and his frequent co-star Corey Feldman earned the name “The Two Coreys” and even starred in an A&E ‘reality’ called The Two Coreys from 2007 to 2008.

i think the mother has a lot of nerve asking the city of toronto to flood the bill.
what about actors equity or sage or the actors guild society im sure they would make a contribution on his behalf. they did for actor brad renfro and a lot of others. all she need do is pick up the phone!!

When it comes to respecting life and death, there is no further saying.

I think he is doing the right thing. A funeral should not be a circus. If the mother wants it to be private then that is the way it should be but we all know that it won’t be. We’ll see pictures of it in some magazine down the line.
