With all the hoopla over Michael Jackson I want to mention the passing of Farrah Fawcett on the 25th of last year.
I know Michael has legions of fans and I do love some of his music I was never a die hard fan. I was a bit too young to get into the Thriller phenomenon and I always could never get beyond seeing Michael as a tormented man with serious issues.
Farrah on the other hand I had a moment with. A brief moment about 10 years ago.
When I saw her at a distance she was all hair and grin. When I was actually in front of her talking she was all smiles and giggles. I had to bring her something and once I gave it to her she called me 'sweetie', giggled a bit more and turned and literally danced away. Yeah I know, not a big moment, but one that stood out to me. So full of life during the 2 minutes we shared together. Seeing her slowly die, seeing the life slip away over the next decade was hard to watch. Rest In Peace beautiful Angel!
