Farrah Fawcett passed away today after a long battle with anal cancer. She was the same age as my mom -- 62 years young.

I tried to watched Farrah's show, Farrah's Story, but I was so overly emotional I couldn't finish watching it. She really was a strong woman who fought back against her illness.

I was a huge fan of Charlie's Angels and having brown hair, when my friends and I played Charlie's Angels as kids, I was of course Jaclyn Smith. But Farrah, wow -- gorgeous and with such a sweet smile. She made me want hair just like hers. She was a great actress, style icon, and a loving mom and friend -- all this clear from seeing her in interviews and on her documentary.

My heart hurts for her family and loved ones, especially her son Redmond. I cannot imagine losing my mom.

Farrah will be missed.
