HOLLYWOOD - June 8, 2010 - "While Gary Coleman's family continues to privately grieve the passing of their son, they would like to thank all of his fans for their generous support. This kind gentle soul left the world with many beautiful memories to cherish. That is why I am personally appalled to hear the news that individuals are selling photos of Gary in the hospital.
