Farrah and Michael

America lost two of its important icons from the 1970's.

Farrah Fawcett passed away today at the age of 62.
I admired her, like any other little girl of the 1970's. She was my hero then and she was married to my future husband, Lee Majors. I envied her. Her hair was perfect...always. I didn't care about her body, just the hair. I even begged for a Farrah doll head for Christmas. I ended up getting my cousin's. Awesome.
We will never forget her.
She'll forever be our #1 Angel.

Michael Jackson also passed away today at the age of 50.
He was an amazing musician and an 80's icon that will never be forgotten by the Class of 1988. We were the ones that bought the Thriller album and played it and listened to it.
He was loved and admired.

Yes, my world changed today, as did other people's I'm sure.
My prayers and thoughts are with these celebrities' families as they try to get through this hard time. They will be remembered and loved always.

Tonja, we all lose a bit of ourselves when we lose anyone who has touched our lives, even if it was in the smallest of ways. I would like to contact you about your father, who is also gone, a musician who knew and made music with Chill Hillman (a post of yours from 2007). I know people who knew Chill and would like to talk with you about your father and Chill and the music recordings they made. -- Please Email me at: (remove all the numbers from the address shown) Thanks - Mike
