Not only a brave woman who has battled cancer for over 6 years, Elizabeth Edwards is the model of grace and humility as well as unimaginable humor. Her end-of-life decision to spend her final days in her own home shows me that there is such a thing as a peaceful death, and that we can reach closure with our loved ones. I hope she is enjoying her house full of family and friends and that they are telling stories, looking at old photos and having as many laughs as tears.
Elizabeth, I never knew you but thank you for your courage, grace and dignity.
NOTE: Just found out that while I was writing this Elizabeth passed away peacefully surrounded by love.
