Goodbye Farrah

Shampoo and shaving cream commercials, television and feature films. Farrah Fawcett did it all, but for her fans, she never really moved beyond the starmaking role as Jill Monroe in the television hit series, Charlie's Angels. With Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson, she played a savvy and seductive detective. Rising to temporary superstardom, (from an eternal perspective as well as in Hollywood, is there really any other kind?), Farrah became a pin up girl for a generation.

Post Angels, she was more known for making the tabloids due to her rough private life with Ryan O'Neal and their difficult family life. Unlike Hollywood, life doesn't always guarantee a happy ending, and this angel faught long and hard against her enemy, cancer. Now the battle is over. Hopefully, she has found her peace.
