Corey Feldman didn’t attend Corey Haim’s funeral yesterday; instead he posted an open letter on his blog commemorating their brotherhood. “Nobody will ever need me the way you did,” he writes. “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 other’s 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. When I did Larry King I could barely form sentences, but knew I had to be strong to send a message,” he continues. “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!”
