Elizabeth Edwards, wife of one time Senator and two times presidential candidate John Edwards, died today after a long battle with cancer. Edwards was 61.
I, of course, did not know her personally but she seemed to be a sensible woman who dedicated her life to various causes. She endured quite a bit and her husband’s infidelity was pain on top of pain. She deserved better than that.
I send my heartfelt sympathies to her family, particularly her children, who must now deal with the grief of their loss. It is tough any time a loved one dies but it is particularly tough at this time of year.
May God bless those who she left behind.
