Elizabeth Edwards Passes
The details were painted out in a book written by former Edwards campaign manager, Andrew Young titled, The Politician.
Mrs. Edwards was also a writer, having authored two books: Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers, and Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life's Adversities. She also shared her story with this year's Kennedy Center Honors recipient, Oprah Winfrey.
Mrs. Edwards was a woman who had been scorned, not once, but at least twice, while being portrayed as a person of strength and courage during her most darkest of days.
Both the President and Vice President have made comments on her passing:
President Obama: "In her life, Elizabeth Edwards knew tragedy and pain. Many others would have turned inward; many others in the face of such adversity would have given up. But through all that she endured, Elizabeth revealed a kind of fortitude and grace that will long remain a source of inspiration."
Vice President Biden: “Elizabeth Edwards fought a brave battle against a terrible, ravaging disease that takes too many lives every day. She was an inspiration to all who knew her, and to those who felt they knew her."
Elizabeth Edwards was 61.
