RIP Elizabeth Edwards

She was one classy woman, surrounded by ugliness, but always showing grace.

Her last public words bear repeating:

You all know that I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces -- my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope. These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined. The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful. It isn't possible to put into words the love and gratitude I feel towards everyone who has and continues to support and inspire me every day. To you I simply say: you know.

RIP Elizaabeth

Oh, and by the way. Cancer sucks.



  1. Yesterday really was a sad day. She was an amazing woman. I hope that the memory of her will live on. The way she addressed her health was inspirational. I think we all can learn a lot from her.

  2. Ann, I was very saddened by Elizabeth Edwards' death as well and posted about it at nancyspoint. Hope you can stop by. It's such a great loss to so many. We all relate too well.
