Want the details on Elizabeth Taylorâ€™s funeral? A lot of folks do. Unfortunately fans will not be able to attend or contribute in any way, because she is having a private funeral â€“ right now.
Elizabeth Taylor’s family and friends are currently putting the icon to rest as we speak. She just died yesterday so this is a very rushed service.
But Jewish tradition calls for a burial as soon as possible, and so this makes complete sense. A larger ceremony is being planned within the next few weeks.
I am sure you all want some details so here is what we know:
The service is being held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, also where her dear friend Michael Jackson was laid to rest, and it is rumored that she will be entombed in the same mausoleum.
Several black limos with close friends and relatives arrived around 2pm PST, at the burial grounds, TMZ has that footage here.
Of course fans and media outlets tried to catch a glimpse but security is tight and there is not a lot to see. I am sure that we will be hearing more about a service geared more towards the public in the next few days.
We will keep you posted on any new updates!
I wrote a post about my favorite things about Elizabeth here, with some fun interesting facts. It also included a few television line ups of movie marathons and the BIO channel feature, “BIO Remembers: Elizabeth Taylor.”
RIP Elizabeth Taylor!
