My mother had Elizabeth Taylor's eyes only they were green instead of violet. She also had her smile, nose, hair and almost as many husbands. They shared a fondness for pills, a love of drama and a heart for helping others. They were always a pair in my mind and when my mother died in 1984 it was as if Liz lived on as an extension, or a comforting parallel. I was doing two or three things at once last night when I glanced across the room at a television I could not hear, saw the word Remembering and Elizabeth Taylor's beautiful face made up like Cleopatra. "She died?!" I shouted to my husband, the one who keeps up with big news, then I turned away, embarrassed for tearing up over a movie star.
