EXCLUSIVE: Friends And Family Planning Memorial Service For Corey Haim

Family and friends of tragic Lost Boys actor Corey Haim are planning a tribute service for him in Los Angeles following his funeral in Toronto on Tuesday, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The source told RadarOnline.com: “I spoke with Corey’s mom Judy Haim and she told me that she wants a small service as a tribute to him back in Los Angeles also because a lot of his friends cannot go to Toronto.

“She is trying to cope with losing her son while fighting her breast cancer too.

“I don’t think that Corey had a Will or anything like that because everybody knew that he was flat broke and he was always complaining about not having enough money and that made him depressed too.

Haim’s long-term friend Corey Feldman is beginning to anger some of his friends because they feel that he’s using the death to promote himself once again.
