Farrah Fawcett Passes Away

by at . Comments

Farrah Fawcett died at 9:28 a.m. this morning today. She was 62. The actress and model died at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., in the ICU.

Her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal was by her bedside as she passed away.

Her only child, Redmond O'Neal, whose father is Ryan, was not present.

Farrah was diagnosed with anal cancer back in 2006. She had recently returned to St. John's for treatment of complications from the cancer.

"She's gone. She now belongs to the ages," Ryan O'Neal, who this week planned to wed his partner of 29 years (it's not clear if he did), said.

"She's now with he mother, sister and God. I loved her with all my heart. I will miss her so 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."

Like so much about Fawcett's life - including her bumpy relationship with O'Neal - her heroic struggle to beat the disease was closely followed by her fans.

O'Neal, in particular, remained a steadfast supporter of Farrah Fawcett, who, despite her frailty, spent the last months of her life filming a TV documentary chronicling her illness, including several trips to Germany to undergo treatment.

Farrah Fawcett skyrocketed to fame as one of the private eyes on Charlie's Angels, and also starred in The Burning Bed, Nazi Hunter, Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story, Margaret Bourke-White and Small Sacrifices, among other works.

We wish her family the best in this difficult time.

I love you, Farrah. You were the reason Charlie's Angels was a hit and the show was never the same without you. I wish back then you understood that you were more than just a pretty face; you healed people with that role. You and Lee Majors were the ideal couple; I never understood why you left him for Ryan, but only you know what was going on and what you needed regarding love. The world lost a part of our collective hearts with your passing. Give our love to Princess Di when you see her in heaven, Angel! xoxo
