Today, Hollywood mourns the loss of an amazing actress and incredible beauty. Her former co-stars and friends have issued the following statements.
“Farrah had courage, she had strength, and she had faith. And now she has peace as she rests with the real angels,” said Jaclyn Smith after the death of her friend and Charlie’s Angels costar Farrah Fawcett.
Cheryl Ladd, who replaced Fawcett on the wildly popular ’70s show, says: “I’m terribly sad about Farrah’s passing. She was incredibly brave, and God will be welcoming her with open arms.”
“I will miss Farrah every day,” says Kate Jackson. “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.”
