Stating that the late actor loved trains very much, Shannon Price reveals, 'I plan to spread some of them (ashes) around some train tracks because trains were his hobby.'
Gary Coleman's ex-wife plans to scatter the tragic star's ashes on "some train tracks" to mark the actor's passion for railways. Shannon Price is determined to follow through with her former husband's last wishes and cremate him.
She tells news show Entertainment Tonight, "I plan to spread some of them (ashes) around some train tracks because trains were his hobby and he loved that very much... I think that he would really appreciate that I did that for him."
Coleman died on May 28 after suffering a brain haemorrhage. Price gave doctors permission to turn off his life support system after he fell into a coma at a Utah hospital. On why she decided to take Coleman off life support, she explained, "The doctors told us that even if they had done surgery on him, he would've died. He would've bled to death during the surgery."
"Even if they did take a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same," she added. "He'd basically be like Muhammad Ali... I mean, Gary was gone."
