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."

Bad mojo oozing off her ambulance AND A$$-chasing hubby.. Bad karma BAD BAD KARMA.
God Bless the kids. Mr. Edwards... YOUR cross to BEAR. It's NOW your BURDEN to walk with the BAD vibes YOU two schemed up over all the years together. THIS is HONESTLY earned by your wife AND you. She must have been a wicked person (under the facade of Senators wife) HE was a TORT attorney.. THOSe dudes are just BAD people ALL the way around!
Add "Cheated on terminal wife, and denying love child" and WOW what a Superb President he "coulda" been..
Damn.. I could go on for hours about how BAD the aura, vibes, mojo, and KARMA these people have/had ALL over them.
G'Luck to the hubby.. I would HATE to bear the cross he made for himself. He a complete DOUSCHE-NOZZEL!

#10, "was married" is correct. She WAS married, just like she WAS alive yesterday. Duh.

DeeDee, perhaps your agenda would be better off preached elsewhere. You're a cold and callus person to have to say that here. Give the poor woman an ounce of respect, please.

Sad to hear this. Not to take away anything from any obscure woman, regardless of age, race or religion, but I'm sorry to hear of Elizabeth's passing. Anyone someone famous passes away, it's going to make news.

This is very sad. Let this be a lesson to women married to those cheating men. Dont let the stress get to you. Walk away and live for your kids and for yourself. Be selfish with the life you have if the person you are with is like "this man" LEAVE

A class act, for sure. Too bad she didn't marry one as well.

MAY GOD HOLD HER CHILDREN AND HER FAMILY IN A WARM LOVING EMBRACE. I PRAY THE FIRST FACE THAT SHE SAW WAS HER SON WAITING FOR HER IN HEAVEN.
