RIP Elizabeth Edwards

Elizabeth Edwards passed away today at the young age of 61 years:
Elizabeth Edwards, who catapulted into the public eye in 2004 when her husband, Sen. John Edwards, ran for president on the Democratic ticket, is being remembered for her fortitude and grace.

Over the past few years, Edwards wrote two best-selling books, fought a well-publicized battle against cancer and saw her marriage crumble after her husband fathered a child with another woman. Edwards died Tuesday at age 61.<

"Many others would have turned inward; many others in the face of such adversity would have given up," President Obama said in a statement. "But through all that she endured, Elizabeth revealed a kind of fortitude and grace that will long remain a source of inspiration."
At least she is out of pain, both physically and emotionally. She deserved so much better than was this world, including her husband, ever gave her. But despite that, she managed to maintain her dignity, her pride and her elegance.
