Hollywood friends and family said goodbye to Farrah Fawcett. Ryan O'Neal along with son Redmond joined together for the actress's private funeral yesterday afternoon at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles California. Joan Collins along with Tatum O'Neal and Marla Maples were among the almost 200 guests attending the Catholic service, where longtime friend Alana Stewart and Farrah's doctor Lawrence Piro delivered the eulogies on the Hollywood icon. "Goodbye sweet girl," said Stewart. "[Farrah] never felt sorry for herself during her illness ... she fought cancer furiously." "She's the most beautiful angel in heaven," Stewart added. "She always seemed so indestructible." With city police and private security lining the streets, Ryan and Redmond arrived at the cathedral around 3:50 p.m. and were pallbearers, carrying Fawcett's casket, decorated with yellow and orange flowers into the church. A man played "Amazing Grace" on a bagpipe at the beginning of the service, which also included Bible readings and prayer. Outside the downtown Los Angeles church, a few dozen fans watched as Fawcett's casket was taken inside. Redmond O'Neal, the 24-year-old son of Farrah, was allowed briefly out of jail where he is being held on drugs possession charges to attend the funeral service. Redmond also gave a bible reading. Fawcett died in a Los Angeles hospital on Thursday, at age 62, with O'Neal and Stewart at her side after a long battle to beat anal and then liver cancer.

You missed the reports of Ryan seen in the hearse kissing a blond.

I am glad her personal estate will not be fully shared with Ryan. Had she married him, he might have tried to claim it all.

He was a user of women and not a respecter of life. To sit and share drugs with a son of yours is despicable.

He is such a loser. A whiner. A complainer. An immature fool!

You may, of course, decide to delete my comments, James.
