Farrah Fawcett: 1947-2009

Farrah Fawcett passed away this morning (June 25, 2009)  after a 3 year battle with breast cancer; she was 62 years old. I could tell you that in the 1970’s our entire high school boys baseball, football, and basketball teams had her poster on one wall or another. I could tell you that she was the star and center of attention during a decade when “me” and “discovering yourself” were the mantras. I could even tell you that every girl, ages 13-33, had a Farrah wings hair-doo hoping it might make them look as sexy and beautiful as the real Farrah. But I am not going to tell you any of those memories; instead I am going to leave it to the one snapshot memory that brings me back to my teen years-good bye Farrah you will be missed!
