You should have known Gary when he was 6 years old in first grade in Zion, Illinois, with my sister, Jackie, a dwarf of 4 feet 4 inches, as his teacher. Gary was her most outstanding and brightest student of her 35 year career. Gary was always in charge of the class and sometimes of the school with his favorite teacher of his life always working and planning together. Jackie kept the books he wrote and illustrated in first grade until a basement flood soaked them years later.
A published book that Gary wrote only mentioned one teacher, Jackie McG. Jackie also passed away in May, two years ago.

Poor Gary Coleman may he finally find the peace he so desperately needed. He was the typical poster child for a "has been" where was Hollywood for him? He was funny and talented but they turned their backs on him, and here they are giving millions to so may mainstream no talent actors, Ashton Kutcher prime example. Rest In Peace.

Seems like Gary, like Michael Jackson just could not handle the pressure of adulthood and wanted out. Was Garys fall a accident or did he take his life finally?

I don't think so... but it seems like his soon-to-be divorced wife didn't take very long to pull the plug on him.

I think his wife murdered him. The police were called to his home on multiple times and she was abusive towards him.

I wish the police would investigate his death. She might have pushed him down the stairs or hit his head with something. She sure pulled the plug on him real quick. I read reports where he was getting better and talking.

I want to know if she bought life insurance on him prior to his injury and death.
