"What I loved most about Elizabeth was her bawdy humor. She was down to earth. And her capacity for friendship was extraordinary. It was a comfort that I could call her to talk about whatever. And I could always go over and get a hell of a meal. Oh, to watch her eat! This woman loved soul food. And she'd top off any meal with a sundae. She'd pile stuff on a sundae that I didn't even know existed!"—Shirley MacLaine, Elizabeth Taylor's longtime friend, quoted in People in their end-of-year memoriam to Taylor.
What a wonderful way to be remembered.
