The angels have just added another one to their team.
I'm so sad to report the passing of Farrah Fawcett. The actress passed away this morning at 9:28 a.m., at St. John's Heath Center in Santa Monica, Calif., after fighting a very long and tough battle against cancer. She was with surrounded by longtime love Ryan O'Neal, friend Alana Stewart, friend and hairdresser Mela Murphy and her doctor Lawrence Piro. She was 62.
"She's gone. She now belongs to the ages," Ryan told People.com. "She's now with her mother and sister and her God. I loved her with all my heart. I will miss her so very, very much. She was in and out of consciousness. I talked to her all through the night. I told her how very much I loved her. She's in a better place now."
"She was with her team when she passed," he continued. "Her eyes were open, but she didn't say anything. But you could see in her eyes that she recognized us."
Though they had plans to marry, sadly Ryan says,"There just wasn't time, and Farrah wasn't in any condition to do it."
Probably most well known for her breakout role on the 1970s show, Charlie's Angels, Farrah was a superstar, with everyone either wanting to have her or wanting to be her. With her signature blonde, feathered locks and her tanned body, Farrah was a sex symbol like no other.
After being diagnosed in 2006, Farrah made her struggle with anal cancer public, letting the world into her life, as she did her best to fight the good fight. She is survived by her son, Redmond O'Neal.
A funeral service is planned at a Catholic cathedral in Los Angeles in the next few days.
