Fawcett's longtime companion, Ryan O'Neal, walked among pallbearers with the casket covered in beautiful yellow and orange flowers.

Fawcett and O'Neal's son, 24-year-old Redmond, who has been in jail since April 5, on drug charges, was also in attendance. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jane Godfrey allowed Redmond to be released for three hours and allowed him to wear street clothes.

Also in attendance were Fawcett's  friend Alana Stewart and Angels' co-star Kate Jackson as well as Fawcett's father, James;  ex-husband Lee Majors; and other celebrities including Jackie and Joan Collins; singer-songwriters Carol Bayer Sager and Richard Marx, and hairstylist Jose Eber. About 500 people were invited to the service, said entertainment journalist Eliot Tiegel, who attended as a guest with his wife, Bonnie, a producer of TV's "Entertainment Tonight."

The service, which was closed to the public, lasted more than an hour. Fans and media respectfully paid homage to the Charlie's Angels star from a distance standing across the street from the Roman Catholic cathedral.

The program featured an image of a smiling Fawcett, and O'Neal read the 23rd Psalm.  Eulogies were delivered by Stewart and Dr. Lawrence Piro, one of Fawcett's doctors.

Fawcett, 62, died Thursday following a long and very public battle with anal cancer.  

"After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away," O'Neal said in a statement last week. "Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world."

She was given her last rites on Thursday morning, as O'Neal and several friends were with her during her last hours at a Los Angeles hospital.
