On his blog Tuesday, actor Corey Feldman posted an open letter to the late Corey Haim.

Feldman, who shot to fame alongside Haim in a string of classic '80s films including "The Lost Boys" and "License to Drive," entitled the post "A Letter for the Grave... (an open letter to Corey Haim)."

In it, the actor says he avoided Haim's funeral to minimize media attention and that only recently has he had time to grieve.

I miss you so much already. When I think of something funny I don't know who to tell it to. I find myself trying to call you but then remember your not there. I think about the new movies we will soon be doing together and then suddenly realize [sic] that the dream is over.

Haim died on March 10. Feldman says he knew "this day would come."

But once confronted with the reality of it, it's so much more painful than I could have ever imagined. Nobody will ever understand the brotherhood we shared. Nobody will ever get the inside jokes we told. Nobody will understand the magic of 22/222 . Nobody will ever know how to do the secret Corey handshake. Nobody will ever make me laugh as hard as you did. Nobody will ever make me fight as hard as you did. Nobody will ever challenge me the way you did. Nobody will ever need me the way you did.
