Family and friends of Farrah Fawcett are expected to attend a private funeral service for the late actress which has been set to be held next Tuesday, June 30 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles. The service is scheduled to be kicked off at 4 P.M. local time and will be closed to the public and media.

Farrah's son, Redmond James O'Neal, whom she has with longtime partner Ryan O'Neal, is expected to attend the service. Redmond reportedly has been granted a permit to leave jail to pay his last respects to his late mother. In the meantime, E! News reports that in addition to the planned funeral, "a similarly exclusive memorial will also be held Tuesday at the oceanside Jonathan Club in Santa Monica."

Farrah Fawcett lost her battle against anal cancer, which she was first diagnosed with back in 2006, on Thursday, June 25. She passed away at Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif. where she'd been treated for more than two weeks due to complications for the particular disease. She was 62.

Some Hollywood celebrities, including the likes of Paula Abdul, Christina Applegate, Shooter Jennings, and Miley Cyrus, have all paid tribute to Farrah soon after hearing news of her death.

I wanted to send my condolences to the family and friends of Farrah, and to Ryan, I recently lost my mother so I know what you are going to experience. The days will go fast, and there will be many times that you will find yourself remembering little things. And then there will be times you become sad, there will be times that you catch yourself thinking " I can't believe shes gone." I hope that you will have beautiful wonderful memories,that will help during the times you miss her. My heart goes out to you and to your Dad Ryan. All my best. Kathleen

We all will miss her. She proved to be an excellent actress and more than just a beautiful woman. She was ART itself. She lived it and was it. If beauty and talent can be defined as EXCELLENCE, then she was it. " Some people have greatness thrust upon them. Very few have excellence thrust upon them. " John Gardner
