R.I.P. Brad Renfro, July 25, 1982-January 15, 2008
I'm taking a pause in all of the "Full House" recaps to mention how saddened I was to hear about the untimely death of a truly gifted actor, the troubled Brad Renfro. Growing up, I was absolutely enamored with him and he was probably one of my biggest childhood crushes. Remarkably talented, unfortunately as he grew older he fell into an addiction to drugs and alcohol and even had a few run-ins with the law. Hopefully his personal woes won't mar the memories of the contributions Renfro made to the cinema, and that he'll be remembered for his great gift. I'll miss you Brad Renfro, it feels like a piece of my childhood died with you.
