To the Tate Family: I knew before reading the newsletter that Friday
was Sharon's birthday. I felt linked to Sharon because she was buried on
my 24th birthday, Aug. 13th. I always felt badly about this. If we can celebrate
Sharon's brief life and her birthday; it would be to take time to care more
about each other, about kindness to animals, faithfulness to family life,
concern for injustice. I believe, from what I know of Sharon that she possessed
all these traits and beliefs. Sharon, was judged on her extraordinary beauty
as an actress because those were the values of the day for such a career.
I think Sharon would have evolved into a mature and serious actress beauty
or no beauty, with a flair for comedy. Comedy is the hardest form of acting!I
think she would have brought great joy and laughter into a very sad world.
Today, in honor of Sharon, we must fight for the rights of victims, so often
ignored and forgotten. We must rally against the violence in our society
and the distorted cultural values that glorify murder and mayhem. Above all,
in memory of her unborn son, we must care much more about our children; the
ones so vulnerable to all this anti-social chaos we are witnessing. Happy
birthday in heaven Sharon, I so wish you were here. Sincerely,
HAPPY 60TH BIRTHDAY SHARON
I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH
YOU ARE A GOOD LOOKING WOMAN

Hard to believe Sharon would have been 60 today.
Here is to her getting her Star on the Walk of Fame.

Michael's url links to an interview he did with Jillian
at Sex Monkey Magazine. Of course, Sharon's name came up!
"Maps to Homes of Moviestars"are sold commonly (mostly to tourists) all
over Hollywood. Sometime in July of 1969 the latest one for that year was
issued. The location of the homes of the stars were indicated with a red
star. There was also a list of their names and the address.
Only the top "A list" moviestars were on these large, colorful maps. While
Sharon Tate's star was on that map, I thought it didn't make sense
that she didn't have a star on the "Hollywood Walk Of Fame".
The reason I'm mentioning this is because some people may not know how famous
she was BEFORE her tragic death which happened later on August 9/69.
Happy Birthday Angel!! Love,
Say what you want about Roman and Sharon's
I think this quote from Roman says it all!
He did love her!
Roman Polanski on Sharon:
"There are little things, like packing a suitcase or
getting my hair cut, or dialing the 213 code for
California or the 396 code for Rome, that invariably
steer my thoughts back to Sharon. Even after so many
years I find myself unable to watch a spectacular
sunset, or visit a lovely old house, or experience
visual pleasure of any kind without instinctively
telling myself how she would have loved it all.
In these ways I shall remain faithful to her
till the day I die."
In honour of this sixtieth birthday, I opened a site
dedicated to Sharon and Roman (in french):
They represent for me one of the most beautiful
couples of all the times.
Sharon: I will be thinking of you tomorrow on
what would have been your 60th birthday.
With every passing year, your sweetness, beauty,
kindness and talent are missed more and more every day.
You are very much beloved and will never be forgotten.
Happy birthday in heaven. I'm sending all my love to you and your
little boy. Your devoted fan forever --Joanne Douglas

Happy Birthday, Beautiful!!!
Somehow I can't picture Sharon 60!!
But I am sure she would have looked 30!!
Although Sharon is not in the physical world,
I am sure she is watching over her family.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Sharon,
still beautiful as ever!!
