People bring flowers in memory of famous actress

People have been bringing red carnations to the house of famous actress, People's Artist of the Soviet Union Lyudmila Gurchenko, who passed away on Wednesday evening. The actress was particularly fond of red carnations, and someone laid these flowers outside her house in Tryokhprudny bystreet in Moscow center shortly after the tragic news of the actress' sudden death was broken. She was 75.

'I do not remember so many people coming over to the house,' Larisa Barabanova, a neighbor of the famous actress, told Itar-Tass. 'People have been brining candles, flowers, and some merely stand still for a few minutes outside the house where the actress lived,' the neighbor said.

The designers of Lyudmila Gurchenko’s website decided not to place an official obituary, but merely displayed the actress' photograph subtitled «Lyudmila Markovna Gurchenko. November 12, 1935 - March 30, 2011."
The Internet is full of words of condolences from people who loved Lyudmila Gurchenko. "She remained a woman strewn with flowers by the men folk to her dying day," said a woman who was a fan of the famous actress. "Usually, women of her age look senile and they are old in mind, but Lyudmila Gurchenko always had a young heart," the woman said. A man who admired the famous actress said he could not believe that Gurchenko was dead. "I can't believe it. She has always been with us and I cannot believe that she is gone. She was a fiery woman, to say nothing of her tremendous talent," the man said.
