13 Child Stars Who Died Young

Death comes in many forms: natural causes, illness, accident or murder. It is always a tragedy and it is always a shock. But the hardest thing to reconcile in our hearts is when we have to say goodbye to those who die before their time. Here are 13 child actors who left us too soon. ~Sharon Salsberg

    Death such a tragedy. I watched television, soap operas, and movies all my life. To die has always been a moment in my life after the new year and this year the moment ended and I feel free from the constant constraint of thinking about death. Why is this moment gone?

    Heather O’Rourke did not complete the movie Poltergeist 3. She died while she was filming it. That’s why if you ever watched it, they don’t show her face at the very end because its not her. May she rest in peace. She was a wonderful little actress.
