Oh, sad news. I just heard on MSNBC that Elizabeth Edwards died this morning. I knew she was ill, and I've read the news reports from the past few days so I knew her health condition was grave, but for some reason, it was still a shock to hear. I've lived with several family members that have died from cancer, I've gone down the same path with loved ones as she did, so I know what her family is going through right now.
I won't say another word of her pig of a husband, they were still married at the end, but my heart goes out to her children, the youngest is just 10 years old. I'm reposting my most beautiful flower of the summer of 2010 in honor of this brave and intelligent woman. RIP.
