    I'm saddened by his death, but what really makes me sad is how unhappy his time here on Earth was.
    I hope he's found peace now.

    R.I.P. Gary

    ...along with Lena Horne (singer, actress, dancer), Art Linkletter (radio and TV personality), Dennis Hopper (actor), Lynn Redgrave (actress), Peter Steele (Type O Negative singer/bassist), Paul Gray (Slipknot bassist), Simon Monjack (Brittany Murphy's husband, writer, director, producer), Ronnie James Dio (vocalist/songwriter), Helen Wagner (actress), Dorothy Provine (actress, singer, dancer, comedienne), Keith "Guru" Elam (half of the hip-hop group Gang Starr).

    Add Rue McClanahan (actress)....that's a Golden Girl every year for the past three.

    Yeah Gary's death rocked me a bit. I grew up watching him; we're the same age, too.

    It is weird but it seems as of late you are hearing of people dying more often from hitting their heads. We've had two famous people in a short span of time that this has happened to and i guess i never really have ever thought that much about it. I mean, i've thunked my head pretty hard and thought nothing of it!

    Moving off that, sometimes i feel we were put on this planet for various purposes. Perhaps Gary's was complete. Lord knows as a young actor he made a lot of kids laugh. I thought he was great!
    I do not suppose I shall be remembered for anything. But I don't think about my work in those terms. It is just as vulgar to work for the sake of posterity as to work for the sake of money.

    Actually, Gary had a reccurring role on Good Times BEFORE Diff'rent Strokes.

    He also did a few feature films. I remember way back when my aunt took me to the movies to see On the Right Track, where he played an orphan who lived in a train station.
    It wasn't good, but it was a real movie.

    The same goes for Todd Bridges, Wheel. I watched an episode of "Little House on the Prairie" a few months ago (one of my mother's all-time favorite TV shows), and Todd Bridges was the guest star. Plus, he was on the short-lived "Fish" before "Diff'rent". Those two guys were experienced actors before they hit "Diff'rent".

    Who would have thought back then that Todd Bridges would end up the most together one of the three kids from Diff'rent Strokes? He overcame drug addiction, restarted his acting career, and as a cherry on top, made his redemption public by saving a disabled person from drowning!

    I'm glad he turned his life around. I was always a big fan of his when he first started acting on the various TV shoes. He must have been really smart to act that well at such a young age. I knew Gary was crazy. Man, was he a funny little kid. Dana was the true shocker. I remember when she posed for Playboy. She was a real wild one.

    I read somewhere that Todd was molested at a young age by one of his relatives.

    Yes, Chief. I'm sure that Louis was saying that a talking dog was molested by its family.
