And now, Farrah Fawcett

I came home from work this evening to find that Farrah Fawcett lost her battle with cancer today.

Suddenly this blog is becoming a chronicle of the death of various Baby Boomer icons. So let's be honest. I never watched Charlie's Angels. But this battle with cancer was so courageous, I rooted for her from the moment I learned of her cancer. At the end we knew it was just a matter of time. In a way it makes me so glad I was never among the rich and famous. Well, maybe anonymous and rich wouldn't have been bad. But not famous.

At the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, we light luminaries each year in memory of those who lost the battle. Another soul lost to this dread disease. May we who live remember this, and remember to cherish every moment of our days on earth.
