Actor Kirk Cameron shared a touching tribute to newly deceased fellow actor Alan Thicke on Facebook, and now the post has gone viral.
In the Facebook post, Cameron recalled the days he and Thicke worked together on the set of the ’80s TV sitcom “Growing Pains.”
“I spent Monday through Friday for seven important years with Alan Thicke as my ‘TV dad.’ I’m shocked and truly heartbroken today at the news of his death,” Cameron said.
“Alan was a generous, kind and loving man. I am so blessed to have grown up with him. Chelsea and I send our love and prayers to his family tonight. We will cherish the memories … ‘sharing the laughter and love.’”
While many remember Cameron as Mike Seaver on the TV show, many do not know who he is today. Cameron is perhaps one of the most devout Christians in Hollywood.
“But I met a man, who was the father of a girl that I liked, and I got to talking to this man, and he said, ‘There’s still something that you don’t have, though, Kirk. You have a lot, but you don’t have the Lord,’” Cameron recalled.
“I’m thinking to myself, ‘OK, what’s your point? I don’t believe in God, and that’s really not something I’m interested in.’ But I thought, ‘Well, I better not turn down his invitation to go to church. After all, this is the girl I like’s father.’”
Since then, Cameron has written multiple books about the Lord and his faith.
Kirk’s sister, Candace Cameron Bure, best known for her role as D.J. Tanner on “Full House,” had a similar conversion. On her website, Candace explained that the Cameron household was not a Christian one when she was growing up.
It just goes to show that God can use anyone he chooses to spread His message.
