Elizabeth Taylor has passed away at the age of 79. She was born in London in 1932 to American parents. They moved from England to L.A., Calif. when WWII broke out. She started acting at the age of 12. She married 7 times and had 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. She had a wonderful acting career. In 1999 the Queen of England bestowed on her the title of 'Dame'. Elizabeth did a lot of charity work the last years of her life. The light of her candle will continue on.

Well, she looked like she was in miserable health for the last 30 years.

Snowbrush, yes she wasn't in the greatest of health. In fact, when she was 12 and doing 'National Velvet' she fell from a horse and from that moment on she had back problems. I didn't print any of the pics of her being older. I'll always remember her as Cleopatra :)

Such a tragedy...I know we all must grow old and move on--but it is always sad when someone like this dies.

I'll always remember her as Cleopatra, too.

Beth, yes I feel sadness also when someone dies. An icon like Liz shatters the part of us that says nothing will change. But it does, we grow old and we pass on.

You and I are 2 peas in a pod, we like the history stuff from our actors :)
