Renal failure is a terrible way to die. My husband died of complications from renal failure. He was 29. WOW. I'm in total shock! I used to watch her on GH when I was little. Wow.

Ah, TMZ, such a touching obituary. What, not a picture of what she used to look like? Or how about about a picture of her failed organs?

When Britney dies will you show close ups of her dead organs? And then will your website need to exist upon her passing?

Thanks for this story, TMZ. Shell was a talented actress. Soap stars are so often under appreciated.
