"Elizabeth’s Death Came As A Shock" To Close Friends And Family

Elizabeth Taylor’s close friend and personal publicist Sally Morrison, says everyone close to Elizabeth thought the star's health was improving.

“We are all totally devastated. Elizabeth’s death came as a shock, as she had been doing better in recent weeks, and we had all hoped she would return home. She had battled a lot of serious illness throughout her life, and we were praying that she could rally herself one more time but it was not to be,"

Morrison said. Though her tragic death was a surprise to those close to her Elizabeth was luck to be surrounded by those she loved in her final days.

“It was mostly her close family that saw her during her hospital stay although she was inundated with cards, flowers and gifts from friends and fans, Elizabeth knew that she was loved."

The star was truly loved - and deservingly so! Her long time friend remebered some of Elizabeth's accomplishments:

“I have worked on and off with her since 1985, and she really was a marvelous person and we did a lot of work for AIDS charities together during that time.

“Elizabeth was very witty. I’ll never forget the time she said at an AIDS conference that President George Bush could not even spell the word — that really brought the house down!

“I think she is the last of the great studio female stars and she was such a ground-breaker in so many areas of her life. As well as her amazing film career and colorful personal life I think Elizabeth would want people to celebrate that as part of her legacy."

We miss you Liz, your life will be celebrated!

    How can a 79 year old woman dying from heart failure be a 'shock' to anyone?

    The stars today should wish that they had an ounce of talent that Elizabeth had. She was one of the best actresses ever. There is no real talent today. Reality tv isn't talent.

    I don't get how this was a shock either. She was in the hospital for 6 weeks. She spent like the last 10 or 15 years on the cover of tabloids in her wheelchair looking like she was at death's door. Since I'm younger the only way I really knew of Elizabeth Taylor was on the cover of the Enquirer in her wheelchair with all these sensationalistic headlines that made it seem like she was about to die any second now. I'm sure it's sad for her family, but it's not really shocking.

    Please. This was not a shocking passing. Her family must have been in severe denial about her health.
