    It’s hard to believe somebody you never met, yet knew your entire life is gone. Stars have an unusual relationship with their public. She was simply a never to be fogotten woman in every way. RIP

    Elizabeth Taylor lived life in every way to the fullest. She lived it her way. I have no judgments on her choices as I feel she always cared for others in the end. And she suffered pain just like all of us. She was strong-willed, the most beautiful woman in film history and adored by her fans. It’s hard to believe another legend is gone – the days of the real movie stars is coming to an end – we will never see the likes of people like Elizabeth Taylor again, but how fortunate we are to have experienced her being.
