A Tribute To My Idol, Sharon Tate

In loving memory of Sharon Marie Tate Polanski
January 24, 1943 - August 9, 1969

Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the passing of beloved 60s actress, Sharon Tate. Something about Sharon's story profoundly resonates with me on a personal level. By all accounts, she was a remarkably beautiful, kind, and down-to-earth person. She was also a talented and bright rising star as well as an expectant mother.

It is a huge disservice to Sharon's legacy that she is often remembered for the wrong reasons. Sharon Tate was so much more than just a murder victim. I strongly believe that a greater emphasis should be placed on the amazing life that she led during her all too brief time on Earth rather than focusing solely on her tragic death.

Please honor Sharon's memory by visiting the Tate Family Legacy Website. The work that they're undertaking is incredibly important and deserving of your time and attention.

I love you, Sharon. You will always live on in the hearts of your loved ones and devoted fans. Gone, but never forgotten.
