Alan Thicke's 'Growing Pains' Co-Star Tracey Gold Feels 'So Honored' To Have Played His Daughter

Another one of Alan Thicke‘s former co-stars is remembering him fondly.

His Growing Pains daughter Tracey Gold has released a statement after his death.

“I am in absolute shock and so unbelievably sad,” Tracey told EW. “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.”

She added, “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.”

Fellow Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron also released a statement, as did Leonardo Dicaprio. Read Leo‘s here.

Our thoughts are still with Alan‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
