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."

Dee Dee shouldn't have brought color into this, black and white people die every day, what was Dee Dee's point?.

Her husband tried to become President and this woman fought a brave battle and had to deal with the public humiliation that her husband caused her with his affair and child he had with the mistress. That is why this is news.

Come on Dee Dee, you are better than that.

I don't condone anyone cheating on each other but must of you criticizing people have probably cheated on someone at some point in your life.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

From every thing I've read about Elizabeth Edwards, she was a good and person with good Spiritual, Moral and high standards.
Her children honor her with their love.

John Edwards is a human being who made the same mistake that many people have made and trying to demonize him for this is wrong because GOD fearing loving people must learn to forgive others..
