When i heard the news of Corey Haim's death i got to thinking of all the other stars from the 80's that have died recently...

Corey Haim
Patrick Swayze
John Hughes
Michael Jackson
Dom Deluise - Spaceballs-Haunted Honeymoon

When topics like this surface.. I always think of River Phoenix first. And now more recently Patrick Swayze and Corey Haim.

But another person that was comes to mind for me personally is Kim Walker who was incredible in both "Heathers" and "Say Anything".
