New details on Farrah's funeral

Farrah's son Redmond O'Neal DID attend the funeral and WAS seen in public!  His hair was cut so short he looked quite different than before (presumably a jail requirement that he get a buzz cut). 

He served as a pallbearer along with his father, Ryan O'Neal.  Many still photographers and TV crews covering the funeral didn't recognize Redmond.

Among the other attendees were Marla Maples, Penny Marshall, comedian Garry Shandling, Robert Greenwald (who directed Farrah in "The Burning Bed"), actor Bruce Davison (who played Senator Kelly in the "X-Men" sequel) and fellow "Charlie's Angels" star Kate Jackson

We did not spot Angels Jaclyn Smith or Cheryl Ladd.

    It was reported that Lee Majors did in fact attend her funeral. Supposedly the two of them reconnected after some 23 yrs via a phone call shortly before her death. I was VERY surprised to read that Jaclyn Smith and even Cher, where not in attendance. Both where so vocal all during her fight and seemed to be in constant contact with Farrah. And no disrespect but Marla Maples? Cheryl Tiegs? Joan Collins?...I thought I knew everything there was about Farrah's friendships, and I NEVER heard of any of those women being friends with Farrah?? And why WOULD Cheryl Ladd be there??? She hardly knew Farrah and that was 30 yrs ago....

    Farrah Fawcett is buried in Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles. It isn't a secret, but showing very good taste, Ryan O'Neal kept as much of his, their son's, and her father's grief as hidden from the public as possible. Ms Fawcett and Mr. O'Neal gave a great deal during their struggle with her cancer, to perhaps help others through their struggles in life. Neither of them owes the public any more than they have already given. May the good Lord give them and their family and friends the peace they so richly deserve.

    Many people do not go to funerals. Her friends had plenty time to say "good bye". She gave ample warning. After all, at sixty two, she had a long life. Many young people die of cancer so it makes Farrah appear like a granny not like a unique event. Why would a long lost ex do in her funeral? Look weird? They were not friends.

      There was no sign of Lee Majors. I didn't see any outlet report that he was there.

    Farrah demonstrated brevity in the course of her illness- it is indeed an uncommon trait and goes to show the kind of person she was-i grew up watching Charlie's angels in Nigeria and i recall very clearly that i was thrilled as a child

    I hope her son Redmond would straighten out and get his life back after his brush with the law

    Its so sad that she lost her battle with cancer and remained focused till the very end

    Ryan O'Neal must be devastated at this loss of a soulmate who had just agreed to marry him after so long but providence showed its hand

    May Ms Fawcett rest in peace-may the pain of her passing and the suffering that accompanied that type of cancer give her family the strength to move on and understand that she is resting in the bosom of the Lord

    I'm sorry but I respectfully disagree with Donna. We, the public have no need (and certainly no right) to know where the body of Farrah Fawcett is buried. That is a private matter for her son and his father. (Note to Michelle: Ms. Fawcett had no husband.) I am thankful that this brave and courageous lady was spared the freakish media circus that has erupted surrounding the death of Michael Jackson. She made public her painful fight against cancer in order that those who have never suffered or encountered the disease could know exactly what we cancer patients must endure. She owes the public nothing else. Honor her memory, but leave her and her family in peace.

    I wonder if her ex, Lee Majors (& his wife) was invited or whether he attended.

    Wow! The media has all but foregotten her. R.I.P. Farrah.
    Walton S. Tissot has written about her, MJ & bernie madoff this week.

    It was good that Farrah Fawcette had a beautiful, and private funeral . but she was loved by many people too, and I think Ryan and Mrs. Stewart should give a public memorial in her honor , and let it be known where she will be buried so people can visit her.
