Elizabeth Edwards Passes Away

In In the News on December 8, 2010 at 3:57 pm


Elizabeth Edwards has passed away—she was 61.  She had fought breast cancer since 2004.  She left behind two young children and an older daughter. 

I liked her; she seemed to be a very strong woman.  She and former Senator John Edwards seemed to have the perfect marriage and family.  That was until John Edwards’ affair with Rielle Hunter became public.

Thus, I don’t like him so much anymore.  He kicked her when she was way down—with his lying and cheating.

I haven’t read Elizabeth Edwards’ book.  Perhaps I’ll read it.  Although I had seen her on The View a while ago, I am curious about the thoughts and perceptions she had during her final days. 

I just hope that Edwards passed away with peace in her heart.  I hope she was able to forgive the man who had done her so wrong. 

In a way, I wish she had been totally oblivious to the fact that he had betrayed her so badly.  That way, she would have been none the wiser and would have died in his “loving arms.”  But instead, his presence—perhaps at her bedside—may have been sort of like having a “giant elephant” in the room. 

I hope her transition was peaceful.  I pray that the children will always have warm thoughts of their mother and that they will make her proud.
