Corey Feldman Pens An Open Letter To The Late Corey Haim

He also gets a tattoo in honor of his BFF

While Corey Feldman, best friend of the late Corey Haim, was not in attendance at his BFF’s funeral in Toronto, Ontario yesterday, he did find a way to pay homage to his friend that he called “brother”. Feldman posted an open letter to Haim on his official website and also got a new tattoo in tribute of his late friend. The tattoo is meant to be a private joke between the two Coreys … here is what it looks like:

Corey Feldman skipped his best friend’s funeral yesterday, but he found his own way to pay tribute to Corey Haim last night — getting a big ol’ tattoo. Corey mourned his friend at T-Man Tattoo, a San Fernando Valley ink shop. The art features the numbers, 222. On his blog, in his open letter to Haim, Corey said correctly, “Nobody will understand the magic of 22/222.”

While we may never “understand the magic of 22/222″ we can take a gander at the open letter Feldman penned for Haim and perhaps get some clue? After the jump, read the full text of Corey Feldman‘s open letter to Corey Haim which is titled A Letter for the Grave

Dear Corey.,

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. Hopefully we will not see one shot of the funeral on the news. 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 realise 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. Nobody will ever understand the brotherhood we shared. Nobody will ever get the inside jokes we told. Nobody will understand the magic of 22/222 . Nobody will ever know how to do the secret Corey handshake. Nobody will ever make me laugh as hard as you did. Nobody will ever make me fight as hard as you did. Nobody will ever challenge me the way you did. Nobody will ever need me the way you did.

My mission in life became saving yours. I never gave up, I tried …I walked away, but I always came back, to let you know I was there. In a dark and lonely world with spiteful angry people we always understood each others pain. I have been so hounded by the media and barraged with condolences since your death that I have not been given my own time to grief. I was still in shock while cameras were chasing me down the street looking for my feelings on the matter. When I did Larry King I could barely form sentences, but knew I had to be strong to send a message.

I never knew your death would have such a huge impact on the world. I learned something Corey, there are a lot of people out there who really love you, and appreciate the joy you have brough tho their hearts. I only wish you could see the way the world is mourning over your absence. I wish you could see how big the story is. I wish you could see your face finally filling the cover of People magazine and Entertainment Weekly! That would have meant so much to you. It is such a shame they all had to wait until you were gone to give you the respect you were due as an actor which is what you truly were. The great Canadian actor Corey Haim! I love you and I will forever keep that ring close to my heart. I will do my very best to help give you a memorial that is a celebration of your life the way you would have wanted it…..with everybody laughing and rocking out!

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.

I pray that you are safe and warm and finally filled with peace.

I love you

CF Core Feldog DAWG C-DOG KID and every other name you used to call me…..dine!

There is no question that these two men were very close … it’s almost incomprehensible the pain that Feldman must be feeling at the loss of his friend. I’m certain that sharing this letter with the world, and on some level with Haim himself, will prove somewhat cathartic for Feldman. Here’s hoping that both Coreys will find their happy peace from this tragic loss.

    Wow – I didn’t expect that to make me as sad as it did. It’s obvious he’s in pain and misses his friend, and probably feels guilty that he couldn’t “fix” him. Sad that another way too young person’s life has been cut short.
    On a snarky note though…. ummm wtf is that tatt of?? If I kick young, I hope my loved ones left behind get better tattoos in memory of me than this one!

    I think Corey Feldman should stop using his friend’s death to get press for himself. How many statements to the media has he been making??? And now an open letter? Puuuulease!

    I think that people should lay off Corey Feldman. People grieve in their own way, and this dude just lost his best friend. So what if he wasn’t at the funeral? So what if he got a stupid ass tattoo, and so what if he wrote an open letter. I see anger in his letter as its true. No one gave a shit about Haim until he died. Now CF is being hounded to make statements and interviews on how he is dealing with the loss of someone so obviously important in his life. I hope his death doesn’t have negative impacts on Corey F. RIP Corey Haim. (not even as a fan as i haven’t seen any of his movies, but in the passing of a young person who has left an empty place in many peoples hearts)

    I don’t think Corey Feldman should get any flack for going on larry king and what not. I know if I lost my best friend and people were making claims about them, there would be no way I would sit idly by and let people make jabs here and there. I would defend them.
    I understand him not being at the funeral. I can only imagine how many more photographers would have been there to capture Corey F. mourning his friend.
    The one person I am bothered by is Dr. Drew. I swear every show I turn on he’s on there talking about Corey H. I understand he wants to clarify how dangerous drugs are, but how come he wasn’t doing this non stop media before his death? I think I would have respected his intentions a little more.

    That made me cry. Its everything I wish I could of said to my uncle but never had the chance. He died of a drug overdose. Cory’s death brings up all the feelings I never got out when Gary died. *sigh*

    That definitely brought a tear to my eye. CF seems to be one of the few people that truly stuck by CH through thick and thin. I watched Larry King and CF mostly went on there to defend CH. CF makes a great point about these celebs that are speaking out about CH and haven’t been in his life for years. Also on Larry King was Nicole Eggart who claimed to be a “close friend” but hadn’t actually seen CH in over 3 years.

    Of course he’s going to be making statements….the press will be hounding him like crazy. His best friend has just died and straight away he has been put on the spot…give the boy time to grieve already. And lay off the ‘he’s just doing it for the press’ crap. The press only care because Haim is dead, of course he’s going to be defending him. I sure as hell would!!!
