Elizabeth Taylor's Funeral to be Held Today

Elizabeth Taylor's funeral will take place today, just one day after the legendary actress passed away.

Liz will be laid to rest at California’s Forest Lawn Cemetery in a private service today.

According to TMZ, she'll would be buried in the crypt next to her parents at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery.

Her death certificate lists Mt. Sinai as the mortuary and Forest Lawn as her final resting place. Liz's close friend, the late Michael Jackson, is also buried there.

Liz died early Wednesday morning from congestive heart failure. She's been hospitalized for a while at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

"She was surrounded by her children- Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton," Taylor's publicist, Sally Morrison, said in a statement.

Her family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to her AIDS Foundation HERE.
