  • I was thinking about Beth last week. Then got a text from a family member telling me of her passing. I actually met Beth on the phone. I had married her and David’s nephew, Tom Taylor, thus becoming Elizabeth Taylor. She then informed me, and I could hear the smile on her face, that she was the FIRST Elizabeth Taylor. She loved being Elizabeth Taylor. I always loved talking with her. I loved her spunk and enthusiasm for life. My heart goes out to her husband and family.

    — Elizabeth Taylor
