Elizabeth Taylor, who converted to Judaism for her marriages to Mike Todd and Eddie Fisher, followed the rules of the religion by being buried just one day after her death on Wednesday. And she left specific instructions regarding the Thursday service. Her final wishes included that her service was to begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled. A rep announced: “She even wanted to be late for her own funeral”.
[photogallerylink id=68963 align=left]The funeral for the star, who succumbed to congestive heart failure at age 79, took place at Forest Lawn Cemetary in Glendale California, and was strictly for family members, including her 10 grandchildren. Such a spunky and strong-willed lady who always did things ‘her way!’ Her close friend Barbara Walters said that Elizabeth told her many times throughout her life and career, that she “didn’t give a damn what other people thought of her.”
I think the majority of us loved and admired her! I sure did…RIP Elizabeth, you will always have a special place in my heart! And thanks for all the great memories!
