Fawcett was slow to leave, O'Neal says

The Associated PressJuly 22, 2009 

Ryan O'Neal said even as Farrah Fawcett lay dying, she clung to life.

O'Neal told NBC's "Today" show Monday that doctors said Fawcett had a couple of hours left, but she held on for a couple of days.

She died last month after a long battle with anal cancer.

O'Neal said he writes to Fawcett in his journal, fulfilling a promise he made to his longtime love. He said he'd "see her every day" after her death.
