Farrah Fawcett, who skyrocketed to fame as one of a trio of impossibly glamorous private eyes on TV's Charlie's Angels, has died after a long battle with cancer. She was 62.

Fawcett died at 9:28 a.m. PST at St. John’s Heath Center in Santa Monica, Calif. She had recently returned to St. John's for treatment of complications from anal cancer, first diagnosed three years ago. Her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal was at her side throughout her final days.

Very sad.

If ANY of you get a chance to see the documentary of her struggle with cancer, it is well worth the time to watch.

You are not the only one.

It’s said that guys found out the classes she was taking at UT and signed up just so they could look at her for an hour.

A truly beautiful and glamorous lady.

She was even more beautiful (if that's possible) as a beauty queen in Texas, imo.

It was a brave and worthy battle. Rest in Peace, Ms. Fawcett.

I also lost a dear, dear friend, all but family, last night, so this is not a happy day.
