Hollywood screen legend Elizabeth Taylor has sadly passed away at the age of 79, during the early hours of this morning. It is believed that Taylor was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles two months ago for treatment for symptoms relating to congestive heart failure.
Elizabeth's son Michael Wilding released the following statement:
"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.”
