Elizabeth Edwards , A Lady Full of Grace
My prayers and deepest sympathy go out today to the family and friends of Elizabeth Edwards. She was full of grace during her battle with cancer, and I admire and respect her with all that I am as a woman, and as a mother. She inspired me to be an honest and open writer, to have no fear in the words I choose, and that no matter what I face in my life, my greatest joy and everlasting legacy will be that of a mother.
Her children lost her too soon, but what a blessing for them to have been able to say goodbye, and have no doubt or questions about how much she loved them. Rest in peace Elizabeth. We shall embrace and love your children, and keep them in our prayers. I know you are with your beloved son Wade, watching over your children, and carrying them with you always. You were a lady, a hero and a master, at keeping the faith.
Elizabeth’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Wade Edwards Foundation at www.wade.org.
Full of Grace
