Elizabeth Taylor Died (1932 – 2011)

Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor died this morning of congestive heart failure at age 79, according to the Associated Press:

“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.”
Wilding and Taylor’s three other children were with her. She is also survived buy 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

May we take comfort in knowing that, statistically, at least one of her eight husbands has to be waiting for her on the other side along with her dear, dear friend Michael Jackson. Oh, how she used to bring him such beautiful children to play with. Fresh-faced and innocent. “Whatever does he do with them all?” she’d whimsically wonder while lighting up a room of passionate activists, like herself, fighting disease and hunger.

Rest in Peace, Elizabeth. Your legacy lives on.
