Photos: Friends bid farewell to Farrah Fawcett at touching funeral
Farrah Fawcett was laid to rest at a private funeral Tuesday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles.
Her longtime love Ryan O'Neal and best friend Alana Stewart arrived at the cathedral early, around 4 p.m, according to People.
Charlie's Angels costars, Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd (who replaced Fawcett on 70s show) also attended. Garry Shandling, model Cheryl Tiegs, novelist Jackie Collins, Joan Collins and Fawcett's ex Lee Majors, with whom she reconnected with recently after two decades, were also there.
Fawcett's son Redmond - who was allowed to leave jail (where he is serving a sentence for drug-related charges) to attend the service - helped carry her casket, decorated with yellow and orange flowers.
The funeral program featured a photo of Fawcett in a sequined dress. A James Joyce poem "At That Hour" was inscribed inside.
"Play on, invisible harps, unto Love,
Whose way in heaven is aglow
At that hour when soft lights come and go,
Soft sweet music in the air above
And in the earth below."
Farewell, Farrah. You will never be forgotten.
