Brittany Murphy had such a promising career in movies and music, and she was definitely taken from us way too young. It was tragic how she passed away December 20, 2009, but her mother Sharon says that she still pretends that Brittany’s still alive. So sad.
Sharon has found it difficult to cope with her daughter’s untimely death at the age of 32, so she pretends it never happened. She said, “It’s beyond strange. I don’t have answers for it. Sometimes just in order to function, I pretend it didn’t happen.”
She lived with Brittany and husband Simon Monjack until they both passed away within five months of each other. She said, “I feel their presence here. It’s comforting.”
Sharon went on to say, “I’m always remembering times with her. She would always say that we grew up together, and that’s true. We were so close, and such great friends.”
Sharon is working on a book about her daughter and is concentrating on her charity, the Brittany Murphy Foundation. She added, “A portion of the proceeds that I receive from the book will be donated to charity.”
