Prayers for Angelina

Marcheline Bertrand, actress and mother of Angelina Jolie, died on Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Bertrand, pictured far left, battled cancer for over seven-and-a-half years. She was surrounded by her children, Angelina and son James Haven, as well as Jolie's partner, Brad Pitt. She was 56.

When Shiloh was born in May, Bertrand said, "My heart is overflowing with joy with the new arrival of Brad and Angelina's third child. Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh are deeply loved children. They have very kind and caring parents who love and support each other in every way."

A private funeral is planned, and the family requests that in lieu of flowers or gifts, donations be made to the Women's Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai.

So very sad, she was very young and beautiful. She had to be quite a woman to raise someone with the character of Angelina.
