After news broke that Gary Coleman had died at the age of 42 after suffering a brain hemorrhage, emotional reactions from fans began pouring in to PopEater.

"RIP Gary. You were such a great part of everyone's lives. I'll never forget watching you on 'Diff'rent Strokes' as a child and laughing until my stomach hurt. May you be laid to rest," Krystal McDonald wrote on PopEater's Facebook page.

Artie Glackin, who worked with Coleman, sent his thoughts and prayers along too. "I had the opportunity to work with Gary Coleman on an independent feature called 'A Christmas Too Many.' I was the first assistant director. We got the chance to get to know each other. He is very professional on set and a great guy off set. He never complained and was full of great ideas. My love and prayers go out to Gary, his wife and those close to him."
