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."

Wasn't it in the last day they were saying she's decided to refuse further radiation treatment? They seem to send out these kinds of messages when they know it's over. RIP.

GOD BLESS YOU ELIZABETH AND MY ALL GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO YOUR CHILDREN. I'm a conservative who held her in esteem for the wonderful mother and wife she was sadly to a slime s*** husband. Absolutely his cheating and baby and all that went on that humilated her and her children made her leave her children much too soon. None of us could live through such a crime and when John picked the slut with the ugly face, he paid recently for Rielle's plastic surgery to spare his eyes. WE ALL LOVE ELIZABETH FOR HER FAMILY CAME FIRST and her children and husband were who she lived for. John made sure her husband was a whore so she had no will to live. LOVE TO ELIZABETH'S CHILDREN AND I PERSONALLY HOPE HIS KIDS WHEN THEY ARE GROWN DISLIKE AS MUCH AS THE PUBLIC DOES TODAY. Rielle, John is all yours now... now see if he still wants you. The world hates you and John so both of you matter not .. only the children of Elizabeth's do .. and my best wishes and tears are for them only.

R.I.P., Elizabeth! May her three children be divinely protected from their disgusting father's narcissistic and evil ways. Yes, she gave everything and, ultimately, her physical life on behalf of a worthless bum; but, neither is she (sadly) the first woman to do so.

One can only imagine he and his ugly paramour will now live their illusory soul mate dream and live happily ever after...lol!

Mike,
Show some respect. This poor woman just died and doesn't deserve losers like you saying comments like that. That goes for everyone else here who says something indecent after someone dies, keep your comments to yourself.

Now is not the time to attack her husband, now is the time to wish the family condolences and to pray for them all. Her youngest children will feel this loss the greatest. How sad that anyone has to die of Cancer. Still waiting for that cure.

I hate cancer so much. I wish cancer never existed in this world. RIP Liz Edwards. Shame on your widow John who cheated on you while you were sick and needed his emotional support. Have a great life in HEAVEN, sweet lady!

A class act to the very end.

Unlike that home wrecking tramp he hooked up with and fathered a child with. This should have been her FATE, not Elizabeth's.

Shame on you John, for putting your wife and wonderful mother through all of that.
