    What a strong woman Elizabeth was. I never heard her say a word against John, that was because she had so much class. Wish I could say the same about him...How many out there thinks if he runs again for public office, he would be elected? Not me.


    RIP to this truly courageous, inspirational woman. my deepest sympathy goes out to her children... may they find peace and reassurance that they're mother is in a better place where she is no longer in pain. god be with them all in this sad, sad time...


    she was a true class act who deserved so much better.


    Obviously, her broken and betrayed heart did not benefit her health... Not to mention the 2004 Election loss...
    I hope that John Edwards feels very, very guilty. Shame on him!!
    That woman gave him EVERYTHING she had!!!


    i pass deep condolensce, may her R.I.P


    On Monday, you gave your readers an update on Elizabeth's health,
    which allowed us a chance to share a few words about her.
    Even though,we received the sad news today of losing her,
    Elizabeth Edwards will long be remembered for living through her illness with grace,self dignity and respect. I read the article in People Magazine from July the 12th,2010 that featured Elizabeth. I believe that her oldest daughter Cate will be sure that the younger children will continue to be well provided for in a secure environment. After all Cate learned from the best in caring for her siblings. She learned from her mother Elizabeth Edwards.


    R.I.P. Elizabeth Edwards
    I hope you will be able to have some rest now, and be with your son.


    RIP to a great woman. You are in heaven knowing you will not have to see John Edwards and his scum ho Hunter. Both of these scum bags will be roasting in a special hell that's worse than hell.


    Indeed a sad ending. I'm glad that she has her son with her on their new journey. R.I.P. Liz


    Elizabeth Edwards.

    This article was spot-on. You fought this disease for so long, and rebuilt each piece of your life before it could crumble. I so admire you for being such a fighter, such an inspiration, such a role model for everyone. I hope you know everyone is proud of you. And when (NOT if!) we find a cure for strains of cancer, we will remember you.

    I'm so sorry to hear this news. Rest in peace.
