    A beautiful women has left us. I hope if John Edwards decides he wants to get married at sometime I hope he he marries someone with some class like his wife had and someone she would be proud of and the children can be proud of. This would some respect to Elizabeth and the children.

    What a tremendous loss for her children, personally I don't know how she survived the hell that John put her through, I certainly wouldn't have been as quiet and calm about it as she was. When a man, any married man disgraces his wife by taking up with another woman the pain inflicted is more than emotional, the entire body suffers. She didn't die from the cancer as much as she did from the disgrace, it is well known in the medical and mental professions that being the abused wife causes real tangible illness, and believe me having your husband cheat on you at such a tragic time while suffering with cancer would be enough to finish off most of us. She wrote so eloquently about all of that pain, and she bore it with such trememdous dignity and grace she is sure to have a place right near the throne of God. A loss such as this causes pain to all of us who struggle with cancer. She will be missed.

    Elizabeth- lovely lady, heartbreaking finale. You can't tell me the stress her 'beloved husband' (not!) put her under didn't hasten the outcome. STRESS is a known factor of illness and the body's ability to fight it. Most of us have been there or know someone who has. Someone should take John Edwards and smack him in the face 5 times - one for Elizabeth, one for Cate, and one for the other 3 children including the one who passed. The man deserves to be shunned not to mention his bimbo girlfriend. What goes around comes around and you'll see it play out. By the way wasn't Elizabeth beautiful. As noted before had she grown up in my teenage or young people crowd I would have turned green with envy but only sad envy because she was also a nice person that I would have liked to have as a friend.

    As a sister survivor - I am saddened that she lost her fight with this insidious disease that claims so many lives.

    Rest in Peace Elizabeth Edwards -
    You have been courageous and strong for so long, it is time to rest now. May God's loving embrace encircle your children and loved ones during their time of grief. Thank you for being an inspiration to us all.

    I don't know why I cried. It may have been that I also walk her road in the sense of a cheating husband. However, I am grateful that God allowed her to find forgiveness and untamed peace. She is home with the Lord and she is free from heartaches and pains. I am sure her husband regretted his actions. She had such a short time. Had he known he would have loved, cherish and honor her, then move on with more grace, dignity and respect. R.I.P Elizabeth!!
