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."

Not to make light of her death, but boy was that fast!

Yesterday they just announced she had stopped treatment, then she dies the next day?! Was Dr Kevorkian present during that time? You don't die within one day of stopping treatment unless you're already unconscious and on life support and they're pulling the plug, or they snuffed themselves out.

She was a lady period. With all the garbage that worthless man threw at her she was grace personified. Such a shame that he will now have acess to funds and her home. Will probably play the grieving widower but America knows better. Elizabeth deserved better.

Fred Farkel, you're a loser. Now go back to your dirty magazines, take a Vi-a-gra, and spend some quality time with Mr. Hand, I'm sure that's the only entity you can persuade to spend any time with you.

I am a black woman and Dee Dee, we do not need for you to make anymore comments at all regarding Elizabeth Edwards or any woman, especially the wonderful black women, hispanic women, white women, chinese women, any woman! Elizabeth was a good woman who had hope for all, including the "black woman" you so-call and you have the nerve to say that, today. You have the problem and you need to ask God to forgive you! To all women today, please hold each other up, stand up with each other and beat this disease for all women, including your daughters. God bless you all and Elizabeth, may you rest in peace. No more comments from the DeeDees of the world! Sign an angry black woman!

This last year has been an amazing journey from afar with Elizabeth , my sister and I love ,respect and admire her.
When one cannot be sure there are many days left, each single day becomes as important as a year.
