Elizabeth Edwards Dead at 61

Elizabeth Edwards lost her battle with cancer at her home in North Carolina today.  It was only yesterday that her doctors told her that treating the cancer wasn’t doing any good and told her she should stop.

She died at the young age of 61.

Elizabeth must have known it was the end when she said her goodbyes to her fans via Facebook,

“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.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones during there time of mourning.

Her children:

Wade (1979-1996)
Cate (born 1982)
Emma Claire (born 1998)
Jack (born 2000)

Her estranged husband was John Edwards.
