Elizabeth Edwards / Update: RIP

I am saddened that Elizabeth Edwards' cancer has reached the point that treatment no longer is an option.

Whatever her politics, she didn't deserve the cards she was dealt in life by an unscrupulous husband and disease.

I wish her well in her final months.

Update 5:48 p.m.:  I didn't realize the end was so near based on the news reports this morning.  Elizabeth Edwards passed away this morning, right around the time of my original post.  I'm not sure why this has affected me so much; perhaps it's the thought of how she must have felt knowing that the person she loved the most and to whom she was so devoted had betrayed her.  I hope she found peace in those final moments.

  1. Spoken like a true gentleman. I wish that liberals had such sentiments when it is a Repub or Conservative who is suffering.

  2. Babe, she's dead. May God's perpetual light shine upon her and may she rest in peace.

    Meantime, I'm wondering: dead so fast?

  3. Final hours, rather.


  4. As a 6-month breast cancer survivor with 4 young children, I can say that one of the heaviest things on my mind throughout all of this is what would my children's lives be like if my cancer were to come back and I don't live beyond a few years -- if they have to grow up without their mom. In my case, I know that my husband will always be someone they can look up to with pride and awe. If anyone ever tells them they're just like their father, they will take it as a compliment. Elizabeth Edwards died without that comfort and that is the saddest part of all of this.

  5. Good bless her and her children.
