Hollywood Remembers an "Angel"

Hollywood is in mourning after the loss of their beloved “Angel” and remembrances are pouring in.  We will share them with you here as we get them.

“Farrah had courage, she had strength, and she had faith.  And now she has peace as she rests with the real angels.”– Jaclyn Smith

“I’m terribly sad about Farrah’s passing.  She was incredibly brave, and God will be welcoming her with open arms.”– Cheryl Ladd

“She was the strongest woman I ever met who fought this battle for three years to the end. She never felt sorry for herself, and was the sweetest and kindest lady. I will miss her. " -  George Hamilton

“Farrah Fawcett was a beautiful, talented and thoughtful friend.  When she starred in my movie "Hollywood Wives – The New Generation" she was the consummate professional, sometimes working until 2 a.m.  She was a shining light in Hollywood, and she will be missed by all who knew her.”– Jackie Collins

"Farrah was an inspiration to all and had the most amazing spirit. She was one of the kindest, sweetest, and funniest women of I've had the privilege of knowing and I'm proud to have called her a friend. Her smile will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with her family”–Tori Spelling

“Farrah had an outstanding talent, better than most feature-film actresses that I’ve seen.  She was great to work with and will be missed.”  -Robert Duvall

"Though I did not know her well, Farrah left an indelible mark on me and the public during her one year reign on "Charlie's Angels." She put up a gallant fight and I send my deepest sympathy and prayers to her family and friends."

   -John Forsythe

"Farrah was more than a beautiful star.  She shared the most intimate part of living with the world even as she approached the end of her own life.  Graceful in life and graceful  as she neared the end,  I found working with her to be one of the nicest experiences I’ve ever had in film. God bless Ryan and their son and other members of the family. "– Chevy Chase

"I will miss Farrah everyday. She was a selfless person who loved her family and friends with all her heart, and what a big heart it was. Farrah showed immense courage and grace throughout her illness and was an inspiration to those around her. When I think of Farrah I will remember her kindness, her cutting dry wit and of course her beautiful smile. Today when you think of Farrah remember her smiling because that is exactly how she wanted to be remembered...smiling." -Kate Jackson

“Farrah was and is the true definition of an ‘icon.’ She was of her time but transcended her time. As unique as her name, Farrah was a completely original combination of poster girl, serious actress, tabloid celebrity, role model, talk show personality and social advocate: her career spanned more than four decades and personified the tremendous power and influence of entertainment on our culture. Not many stars can be credited with inspiring both a hair style and changes in legislation (surrounding domestic violence and more recently patient privacy). And she did it without posturing or campaigning but by simply choosing her own path and making her own rules. Farrah remained relevant to the very end. She will be remembered as the modern Mona Lisa and so much more. I will remember her as my friend.”– Craig J. Nevius

“Farrah debuted on the original Donny and Marie show with Lee Majors from The Six Million Dollar Man.   Standing next to this stunningly gorgeous woman as a teenager, there was no doubt in my mind that she was going to be a 600 million dollar star.  Many people have since asked me:  Was Farrah as beautiful in person?  The answer is yes.  And the courageous way she handled the trials in her life proves she was not only beautiful outside but inside as well.” - Marie Osmond

    I loved Farrah Fawcett. I remember her modelling her gorgeous smile on toothpaste ads...always wished i looked like her she was beautiful til the day she died. What a shame. she will be sadly missed. I hope God give Ryan O`Neil strength to get through this. I saw them both in a televised interview...and they had so much love for each other. I wish him all the best. cheryl from Toronto, Canada
