In Memoriam: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was not only a great actress and beautiful woman but an activist and a humanitarian. It was through her actions and advocacy that we have come so far with combating the spread of HIV and finding a prevention. We still have a long way to go. She will be greatly missed.

Sir Elton John sang “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” in a tribute to his friend.

    May the Goddess guide her on her journey to the Summerlands. May her family, her friends and all of us find Peace.

    The Wheel turns, blessed be.

    LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Elizabeth Taylor had the last laugh on Thursday: she was buried a day after her death aged 79 — but exactly 15 minutes behind schedule, on her strict orders.

    The Hollywood legend was laid to rest at the Forest Lawn celebrity cemetery outside Los Angeles, where less than two years ago she attended the funeral of her long-time friend, pop icon Michael Jackson.

    “The service was scheduled to begin at 2:00 pm, but at Miss Taylor’s request started late,” said a statement by her publicist released after the closed-door service had finished.

    “Miss Taylor had left instructions that it was to begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled, with the announcement: ‘She even wanted to be late for her own funeral’,” it added.
