Gary Coleman’s ex-wife calls their relationship “golden” and says that before his recent death they had planned to renew their marital vows.

In an interview aired on Monday’s “Good Morning America,” Shannon Price says she had ordered that Coleman be taken off of life support on the advice of his doctors. The one-time child actor died May 28 in Utah at age 42 after suffering a brain hemorrhage two days earlier.

Price told ABC News that she had found Coleman lying in a pool of blood in their kitchen after hearing what she called “a big smack.”

The couple had divorced in 2008, but Price says they later agreed that divorce “wasn’t the right choice.”

Coleman starred for eight seasons on the sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes.” It debuted in 1978, when he was 10.
