urx unit loader Angelina Jolie's mother dies


Sad, sad news. Angelina Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, has died of cancer. She’s been battling the disease for seven years. She died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, with Jolie, her brother James Haven and Brad Pitt around her. Bertrand was just  56. A private funeral is being planned and the actress has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Women’s Cancer
Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai.
One cannot help but think that her mother’s terminal illness contributed to Jolie’s noticeably somber mood at the recent Golden Globes. Maybe now the press will lighten up. I know I speak for all her fans by expressing deepest sympathies.
