Screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, who died last week at age 79, was famously known for the great loves of her life, including Richard Burton and Mike Todd -- but she also had a close bond with her seventh and final husband, construction worker Larry Fortensky, according to his sister.
Linda Untiet told the Daily Mail that her former sister-in-law loved her brother until the end. "Elizabeth wrote Larry a love letter at the end of last year. It said how much she still loved him. It was almost a 'goodbye' letter."
Untiet continued, saying her brother was very upset by Taylor's passing. "He was very cut up. Liz and Larry always stayed in touch. They had huge affection for each other. Larry spoke to her just before she went into hospital for the last time." Untiet added, "She appreciated his loyalty in never speaking out about her."
Taylor met Fortensky when they were both in rehab for drugs and alcohol addiction at California's Betty Ford Clinic. They married in 1991, when he was 39 and she was 59. They divorced in 1996.
