Needless to say, a Legend has left us….
Oscar winning actress Elizabeth Taylor died today at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital. She was 79. She was surrounded by her children: Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton,” Taylor’s publicist, Sally Morrison, said in a statement.In the same statement, Michael Howard Wilding, 58, memorialized his mother:”My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love,” he said. “Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.”
Needless to say, the do not build them like that anymore. Hollywood was a different place in those days. Mrs. Taylor will be missed and my prayers are with her family. She was, an actress, an activist, a warrior for things that she loved.
May she rest in peace.
