A Tribute to the Lady, the Legend: Lauren Bacall

The past week has been difficult, two big losses hit the film community. Robin Williams' tragic death due to depression shocked the world, and just a day after, Hollywood lost a queen. Bacall's death hit me harder than Williams'. His was more tragic due to his age and circumstances, but I grew up more with Lauren Bacall.
While Robin Williams is like a family friend that you call your uncle, whom you love for his humor and kindness,  Lauren Bacall is like the glamourous grandmother you watch get ready and admire for her beauty, grace, and spirit.

I am glad that she lived a full life, and now she's reunited with the love of her life, Humphrey Bogart. Last night I cried over her, but this is the silver lining.
So to cope, my tribute is full of pictures of the two lovers, here's hoping they know each other now as they knew each other in life, young, beautiful, healthy, and hopelessly in love.

Keep kicking ass and being the bold sultry starlet you'll always be remembered as. You will be missed.

You once said "You can't always be a leading lady," but you will always be our leading lady.
My diary entry on the day of her death. Thanks for teaching us how to Marry a Millionaire.
