"She was a great friend to my family and especially to me. We all loved her, as she was one of a kind. I'll miss her very much." -- Liza Minnelli on Lauren Bacall's passing.
Minnelli grew up knowing Bacall and her husband, Humphrey Bogart. The Bogarts were Beverly Hills neighbors of Minnelli’s mother, Judy Garland.
Garland, Bogart and Bacall were among Hollywood’s original Rat Pack members.
In addition, Liza’s father, Vincente Minnelli, directed Bacall in the films Designing Woman (1957) and The Cobweb (1955).
