Remembering Farrah Fawcett, a year after her death

Farrah-fawcettFarrah Fawcett, who died a year ago after a fierce battle with cancer, will be remembered Friday as friend Alana Stewart opens the doors on the offices of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation in Beverly Hills.

The foundation, which Fawcett launched a year before her death, focuses on funding research into alternative cancer treatments, particularly for pediatric and anal cancers.

"I'll get very teary and miss her, but I feel her spirit is so strong," Stewart told "Entertainment Tonight." "I feel like she went to a place where she's free, she's happy, and I feel she's looking over all of us."

Through a twist of fate, Fawcett's memory will always be intertwined with -- some might say overshadowed by -- the death of Michael Jackson, whose passing hit the news mere hours after hers did on June 25, 2009. That said, we present below a few headlines spotlighting the Texas beauty who defined what it meant to be one of America's "Angels."

Once again, Farrah is snubbed. She was an icon. Nothing against Michael, but they should have had equal time today...her battle with cancer chronicled was the most heartbreaking thing to witness but I was amazed at her bravery. ..a special lady

Let's not dwell on who wins a posthumous popularity contest. Michael was bigger than life and his entertainment perpetuated itself perpetually, even up until the 21st century. However, Farrah Fawcett albeit she's a sex-symbol of the late 70s, didn't perpetuate her presence in the spotlight.

Eternity, if you don't want to dwell on the popularity contest, why are you doing it?

Farrah is and always will be awesome! Love me some Farrah!

She was one of my favorite actresses. Have no words to express my sympathy to all her family, I will always remember her .one of my favorite shows

She was only in the 1st season of Charlie's Angels. Why is she the "Angel Icon", when Kate Jackson and Jacquelyn Smith lasted the entire run, from the 70"s to the 80"s, as Angels. She was a SEX SYMBOL, not an icon by anyones standards. Did she cross any barriers or create, or did others create for her? T.V. was her thing, not the entire Entertainment world.

too bad she was a cuckoo towards the end of her career and she did not grow old gracefully. and got whacked by her boyfriend

I loved Farrah, she was about my age and my fashion mentor for many years. God bless her memory and you for continuing it with such love. In Christ, janice

i thought that Farrah died in 2010
