This was still a shock even though the news yesterday about Elizabeth Edwards stopping treatment for cancer was all over the web. They had mentioned that there is nothing that doctors can do and that she was surrounded by John Edwards and her family at home. They did say as well that she was given weeks and not months to live.
When I read the headline of Elizabeth Edwards passing today, I was floored. I would have to say that we lost a courageous and graceful woman in Elizabeth. After all the cards that were dealt to her (John Edwards cheating on her, her dying from cancer), she remained as graceful and a strong advocate for mothers and wives alike. She never said anything bad about John Edwards and / or his mistress even at a time when she was hurting the most.
We take our hats off to you Elizabeth and may you rest in peace.
