Elizabeth Taylor - The Legend
Most of you have read or heard about the passing of Elizabeth Taylor. There are going to be many tributes to her and the very colorful life that she led. I was a huge fan and enjoyed following her career. I've borrowed some articles from today's Associated Press and MSNBC which I found to be very complete and informative.
Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed film goddess whose sultry screen persona, stormy personal life and enduring fame and glamour made her one of the last of the old-fashioned movie stars and a template for the modern celebrity, died Wednesday at age 79. ..She was surrounded by her four children when she died of congestive heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she had been hospitalized for about six weeks, said publicist Sally Morrison.
"My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love," her son, Michael Wilding, said in a statement.
"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."

Thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Rest in Peace, Elizabeth.
