Gary Coleman’s parents, Willie and Sue Coleman, said they have no hard feelings toward the actor's ex-wife, Shannon Price, who told doctors to pull the plug on the 80s sitcom star, ending his life despite orders in one of the actor’s wills to keep him alive for at least two weeks should he fall into a coma.

Coleman's parents, appearing on The Joy Behar Show on HLN, said they hadn't seen Gary since he turned 18, and never met Price, 24. They said Price had never called her before or after the events leading up to Coleman’s sudden death at the age of 42.

While they’re staying out of the legal battle between Price and Coleman’s former business associate/ex-girlfriend Anna Gray over Coleman’s estate, Sue said that she would hope everything is resolved in a “civil manner,” noting that Grey seems “intelligent.”

Willie Coleman noted a stipulation in a “secret will” that surfaced noting that he wanted to be be kept alive at least 15 days should he fall into a coma.

According to that will, Gary wished to be revived if he went under, Willie said.

"We're not holding any animosity towards Price because ... she was young and inexperienced,” Willie said.

Coleman died at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center May 28, two days days after he fell into a coma as result of a brain hemorrhage after falling ill at his Utah home.
