Following the sad news of the death of Hollywood icon and timeless beauty Elizabeth Taylor, from congestive heart failure, her oldest son, Michael Wilding, Jr. released an emotion statement on behalf of the family.
“My mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love,” Wilding, 58, said in a statement Wednesday. “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.”
The family is asking that fans make a contribution to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in lieu of flowers. There is a Facebook page set up for fans who want to pay tribute to Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
