I just read this sad new, Jim Beaver posted a note on his MySpace page:

"Jim is in mourning for one of the best friends and best directors he's ever known--Kim Manners, who died last night from lung cancer"

Kim directed many Supernatural episodes been "Family Remains" one of them.

Rest in Peace Kim
