Doherty Grieving For Dad

Actress SHANNEN DOHERTY is in mourning following the death of her beloved father on Friday (05Nov10).
The former Beverly Hills 90210 star's dad John Thomas Doherty, known as Tom, passed away following a long battle with ill health. He was 66.
In a statement, she says, "I love him with every inch of my being and cannot imagine life without him."
Earlier this year (10), Doherty revealed she was spurred on to compete in TV talent show Dancing with the Stars after her father suffered a stroke.
She revealed, "He lost his speech, he wasn't mobile. He was really struggling... When I mentioned this to him, he got really excited, and he wanted me to do it. I thought, if my dad can fight through having a stroke and the loss of being able to communicate, I think I can do this for him. So I figured I'm going to get over my fear for him..."
