The cast of Growing Pains continue to mourn the loss of beloved actor and former costar Alan Thicke.
Following Kirk Cameron‘s touching tribute, another TV child of his is speaking out to honor him.
On Wednesday, Tracey Gold AKA Carol Seaver released an emotional statement to EW about Alan’s sudden passing:
“I am in absolute shock and so unbelievably sad. In 1985, the Seavers became a family and Alan was our patriarch. I looked up to Alan and admired him greatly. I always listened to his advice and wisdom. He was so kind and warm and always made me laugh. He was incredibly proud that our Growing Pains days were about family, all our families.”
The 47-year-old actress continued:
“He was truly an amazing father. His sons were his world. Our Growing Pains family is hurting today and that will not go away anytime soon. He was so full of life. I thought we had so much time. I’m not ready to say goodbye. I am so honored to have been his daughter for seven beautiful years. I love you Alan and will miss you forever.”
He will be missed by many!
