Elizabeth Edwards Death


According to local reports, 61-year-old Elizabeth -- who was married to former presidential candidate John Edwards -- had been surrounded by friends and family in recent days including John himself.

Just yesterday, Elizabeth posted a goodbye message on her Facebook page which read, "The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human."

She continued, "But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that, I am grateful."

You can't convince me that the stress & heartbreak from John Edwards cheating on her brought that cancer back. He is a PIG. Poor woman. Rest in Peace.

My two cents ;)    

This sweet beautiful woman had a lifetime of bearing a huge cross of her husband's public affair the stress from that alone could have factored into bring her cancer back and the sadness of her oldest son dying as a teenager..Now a beautiful angel is watching over her 2 young children..RIP sweet angel

There is no question in my mind that the stress from that cheating dog of a husband of hers did nothing but EXACERBATE her illness.

Heaven has one more beautiful soul in it.

RIP Elizabeth.
