Last Wednesday saw the death of Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor, who sadly passed away at the age of 79 due to congestive heart failure. Taylor died with her children by her side in Los Angeles in the early hours of the morning after a long battle with her health.
“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.”
Michael Wilding, Elizabeth Taylor’s son, announced the news and immediately paid tribute to one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars by saying; “My mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humour, and love. 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.”
Elizabeth Taylor will be sorely missed in Hollywood and indeed the world but anyone familiar with her work and persona will be well aware that her legacy will live long into the future.
