Her spouse was at her side. Could there be a big inheritance in this picture?

He probably wanted to be there for his kids, not to mention they were married for a long time at least at one point he loved her and I can't imagine he wanted her to die. Anyway, she was a fine woman who showed a lot of strength when she was hurting the most. My prayers go out to her kids and other family members.

Both John and Elizabeth put their children first. They were still a family, no matter what. My heart breaks for all of them. Our world has lost a wonderful woman.

If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention it to them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died--you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that is a great gift.

~ Elizabeth Edwards



Words like those are the mark of a person who has a deep understanding of life -- and of how to help people get through the painful parts of it. She would have made a great first lady.

I agree with Wendy. Elizabeth Edwards was a classy lady. I just read that members of the Westboro Baptist Church were planning on picketing at her funeral.

I heard that too, Vicki. I think we need to keep track of when any of their membership dies and picket the funeral.

I would rather see a crowd of wonderful people gather in front of the Westboro picketers to sing hymns of love and forgiveness. Let a chorus of beautiful voices drown out the ugly shouts; let a congregation of loving people block out the band of ugly haters.

No arguments, no confrontation. Simply a very peaceful demonstration of God's true grace. That's the most effective weapon against Westboro.

Maybe a bunch of us CULPERTS should attend...

I agree she put the kids first, he, on the other hand destroyed their family for his own selfishness.
