  1. "Red Hot Mama"...perfect descriptor!

    She lived life to the fullest. It seemed so unfair, that someone who embraced life so much, had so many health problems.

  2. What a life. What a gal.
    Every time one of them leaves us, I can't help but marvel at the immortality of film. We never really know them, but the part we know and love is always there. Whenever we want her, there she'll be, riding into Rome on that sphinx, winking at us. Always young, always beautiful.

  3. She lived a full life - in fact, many lives in her short time here. She'll be remembered not only for her beauty, but of her fearless work for AIDS. She was a trailblazer.

  6. She always struck me as someone who was straightforward whether it put her in a flattering light or not.

  7. What a life, indeed. I am in shock that she passed. My only wish is that her final years would have provided her with better health, less pain, and more happiness.

  8. Jill you are so on target. It does seem so unfair. I was alway reminded how to live life to the fullest, just thinking of Liz. An amazing amazing woman. I'm so, so sad now.

  9. Elizabeth the true legand ... she did more in life than anyone could ever dream or imagine to have done... I have never seen or heard of any person whom gave her heart with so much compassion for others... nor probably never will.. Im heartsick ,,, but her suffering is over ... Thank you Elizabeth for bringing us into your life ..................

  10. It does seem incredible that she's gone only because she seemed through all the storms indestructible. But she had a hell of a good time and made a great difference in so many lives. A fine legacy.

  11. I've never known a world without Elizabeth Taylor, I realized this morning.

    Her work for AIDS is an extrordinary achievement

  12. What an incomparable beauty - inside and out, and a huge talent. And one of the strongest human beings I've ever witnessed. She gave of herself, and helped so many, especially in the area of AIDS awareness and education. Rest in peace, Elizabeth...the world is a better place because you were in it.

  13. When they said she was in heart failure, I knew time was short.
    She helped the authors write "Furious Love" by giving them 40 love letters from Richard.
    When the book was finished, revealing so many truths about her romance with Burton, I think she felt free to leave. Heart Failure.

    I don't remember a time in my life without Elizabeth in the news or in the films either. She was the inspiration of a life lived without hesitation. She is the epitome of the phrase "Go For It!"

    And go for it she did. In every way possible. God love her, I hope she is hanging around smiling at all the accolades. I'm sure she'd have something really cool to say about it all. Did you read where she gave instructions that she be 15 minutes late for her own funeral? And 15 minutes late she was. Always late, late for her own funeral. Can't top that.

  14. If I had my way there would be a week long funeral for Elizabeth like Reagan had. She has left her billion dollar estate to 2 AIDS charities, so she is the gay community's hero even after death. Rest in peace dear heart, you will always be my hero!
