R.I.P. Elizabeth Taylor

Very sad news. Elizabeth Taylor, one of the last true legends of the cinema, has passed away at age 79.

She was my late mother's favorite movie star and she followed Elizabeth's life and romantic adventures with great interest and affection. Mom always snatched up a movie magazine from the newsstands if the violet-eyed beauty was on the cover, and she often wistfully reminisced about the one glorious time she met the actress in person and obtained her autograph.

She was, in the words of my mom, "The most beautiful woman in the world. And she was so sweet to me."

Ironically, they both passed away from heart-failure.

Rest in Peace, have a very great and loving fan waiting to meet you again on the other side.

  1. Aww, what a shame. I know she remained a beautiful person long after her outer beauty and body began to fail. One of the truly classy stars we've been lucky enough to share.
