Remembering Sharon Tate 47 Years Later

Sharon Marie Tate Polanski January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969

Sharon Marie Tate Polanski January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969

August 9 marks the 47th anniversary of the passing of beloved 60’s actress, Sharon Tate. By all accounts, she was a remarkably beautiful, kind, and down-to-earth person. She was also a talented and bright rising star as well as an expectant mother. She was a popular model in the 60’s because of her outstanding beauty. She never had a bad word to say about anybody. Everyone who knew her loved her because of her kindness and sweetness. Mia Farrow said she was as “sweet and pure a human being as I have ever known”, while Patty Duke remembered her as “a gentle, gentle creature. I was crazy about her, and I don’t know anyone who wasn’t”.

Roman Polanski has stated that he still remembers her and the time that they were together as the happiest in his life. He said she always carefully packed his suitcase and whenever he travels he always remembers that.

I became a fan of hers in 1967 when I saw her performance in Valley Of The Dolls. She stood out from all of the others in the movie not just because of her beauty, but something within her made me admire her.

It is a huge disservice to Sharon’s legacy that she is often remembered for the wrong reasons. Sharon Tate was so much more than just a murder victim. I believe that a greater emphasis should be placed on the amazing life that she led during her all too brief time on Earth rather than focusing solely on her tragic death.

She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award as “New Star of the Year 1967 – Actress” for her Valley of the Dolls performance. She placed fourth behind Mia Farrow, Judy Geeson and Katharine Houghton for a “Golden Laurel” award as the year’s “Most Promising Newcomer” with the results published in the Motion Picture Exhibitor magazine. She was also runner-up to Lynn Redgrave in the Motion Picture Herald’s poll for “The Star of Tomorrow”, in which box-office drawing power was the main criterion for inclusion on the list. These results indicated that her career was beginning to accelerate and for her next film, she negotiated a fee of $150,000 period

At the time of this tragic murder the media blamed the victims for their death because they were considered hippies and drug addicts.

“In death, they made a monster out of her. A monster out of the sweetest, most innocent, lovable human being. She was kindness itself to everybody and everything around her — people, animals, everything. She just didn’t have a bad bone in her body. She was a unique person. It’s difficult to describe her character. She was just utterly good, the kindest human being I’ve ever met, with an extreme patience. To live with me was proof of her patience, because to be near me must be an ordeal. She never had a bad temper, she was never moody. She enjoyed being a wife. The press and the public knew of her physical beauty, but she also had a beautiful soul, and this is something that only her friends knew about.”- Roman Polanski

From Great Tragedy Can Come Blessings!

Sharon’s mother Doris Tate went into deep mourning for many years over the loss of her precious daughter. She was shaken out of her mourning when she was notified that some of the murderers were up for parole. She became a strong force testifying at parole hearings for the murderers of her daughter, making sure that they serve their sentences for the crimes they committed.

For the rest of her life, she strongly campaigned against the parole of each of the Manson killers, and worked closely with other victims of violent crime. Several times, she confronted Charles Watson at parole hearings, explaining, “I feel that Sharon has to be represented in that hearing room. If they’re (the killers) pleading for their lives, then I have to be there representing her.” She addressed Watson directly during her victim impact statement in 1984: “What mercy, sir, did you show my daughter when she was begging for her life? What mercy did you show my daughter when she said, ‘Give me two weeks to have my baby and then you can kill me.’ When will Sharon come up for parole? Will these seven victims and possibly more walk out of their graves if you get paroled? You cannot be trusted.”

In 1992, President George Bush recognized Doris Tate as one of his “thousand points of light” for her volunteer work on behalf of victims’ rights.

Because of Doris Tate the Victims Right Program was formed and this has gone on to help millions of people who have been victims of violent crimes. She worked to raise public awareness about the United States corrections system and was influential in the amendment of California laws relating to the victims of violent crime Doris passed on in 1992, but her family has kept her legacy going by founding the Doris Tate Victims’ Rights Foundation.

Sharon Tate’s biographer, Greg King, holds a view often expressed by members of the Tate family, writing in Sharon Tate and the Manson Murders (2000): “Sharon’s real legacy lies not in her movies or in her television work. The very fact that, today, victims or their families in California are able to sit before those convicted of a crime and have a voice in the sentencing at trials or at parole hearings, is largely due to the work of Doris [and Patti] Tate. Their years of devotion to Sharon’s memory and dedication to victims’ rights… have helped transform Sharon from mere victim, [and] restore a human face to one of the twentieth century’s most infamous crimes.”

Out of this deep tragedy there has been a blessing prior to this tragedy there was no support for crime victims. Sharon’s life had great meaning and her death has helped millions.

Her spirit is at peace. I have spent time finding out if Sharon is a ghost.  I know that many believe that she still walks around as a ghost.  I have not found that to be the case.  When she died she went immediately into the spirit world, along with her baby.  Its heart breaking to see, but the police photographs taken of her at the murder site shows a smile on her face.  In that last moment of life I know that the angels came and took her.  The sightings that have been reported have been dark spirits that mimic her and what occurred. Sharon, along with her deceased loved ones, work spiritually to help those who have gone through great tragedies.

Sharon you will always live on in the hearts of your loved ones and devoted fans. Gone, but never forgotten.

Bless your beautiful spirit Sharon,

Remembering America’s Angel Farrah Fawcett

Remembering America’s Angel Farrah Fawcett-Click Picture For Tribute Article
June 25, 2014 marks the 5th year since Farrah Fawcett pasted into spirit. We remember her beauty, grace and love. Farrah Fawcett will be remembered today as more than just a sex symbol. To me she was a courageous woman who accepted her fate, yet, fought with everything she had to overcome it and to survive.

Though the poster image of the beautiful “Charlie’s Angels” actress in skin-tight red swimsuit will forever remain an icon of the 1970s, Farrah was determined to prove that she was more than just a pretty face and body and did so by taking on challenging acting roles in the 1984 television movie “The Burning Bed” and the film “Extremities” in 1986.

Farrah Fawcett died at age 62 of complications from anal cancer about 9:30 a.m. PT, about two hours before Michael Jackson died. Because her death was widely anticipated, she was diagnosed in 2006, most of the news coverage focused on Jackson.

Farrah was definitely America’s Angel. I know that she is at peace and does not suffer any longer.

Farrah put up a courageous battle and stayed strong spiritually until the end. I have felt her spirit by reading the following book. “My Journey with Farrah: A Story of Life, Love, and Friendship” by Alana Stewart , a book that everyone should read…if the word cancer has ever touched your life or anyone’s life it is a must read. The word Cancer changes and touches everyone, this book about friendship, life, love and living in the moment and taking nothing for granted…a reminder we all need to hear…and listen to. I could not put this book down; it made me cry, laugh and take a closer look at my life. We should all be so blessed to have a friend like Alana in our lives. One never knows why people come into our lives and what impact they may have on it…take nothing for granted and treasure every moment.

I could not put this book down. It was that good. I was touched, inspired, amused — and literally in tears by the final chapter. Alana Stewart’s journal is the perfect tribute to
“America’s Angel.” I am a changed person after reading this. I heartily recommend it to anyone and everyone who needs a primer course in real friendship, real love, real faith and real courage. A beautiful book from cover to cover — with one warning — it’ll absolutely break your heart. But it will lead you through a personal journey toward deeper soul understanding.

Thank you Alana for having the courage to write and share this story. This is a book that will touch many lives…and help many….a must read.

Alana Stewart — ex-wife of singer Rod Stewart — Started the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which is dedicated to finding alternative methods of treating cancer, with an emphasis on anal and pediatric cancers.

The greatest gift Farrah Fawcett left the world was her determination in life and her fight against cancer. Let her story inspire you.

If you are battling cancer do not succumb to self pity, fight and fight hard. Use medical treatment, natural treatments, and meditation because cancer is not a death sentence. Many people live a long life after being diagnosed with cancer and fighting it.

Combining Naturopathic medicine with traditional medicine is a good way to fight cancer. Click here to read my article on Dry Skin Brushing , which is extremely beneficial for cleaning out the lymph nodes.

Farrah Fawcett was a very artistic person and so strong, she was often unappreciated. A real heroine. Remember the life of Farrah as she was an earth angel, America’s Angel, deeply loved by all who knew her, and now is a heavenly one. Take a few moments to remember this courageous woman.

Many blessings,
