          Yes, rest in peace Elizabeth Edwards.  I could say more but I'm sitting on my hands instead of typing what I'm thinking.

                    So what are you thinking? Do you think she wasn't a good woman or is it her husband you don't like? Inquiring minds want to know.

                      The marital mess she endured was horrible, but my heart hurts when I think of her and her  three children losing their mother and during the holiday season. Losing a loved one is very difficult for most everyone…but when it occurs at a "marker" like Christmas (* they are Christian) it seems amplified and could fill their lives with additional dread of this period of time forever( now seems like the holiday is two months long!) . The pain of those 2 little kids is haunting my mind. I can't even imagine.  I wish for her, and her kids, she could have held on until the holiday had passed…young kids are so vulnerable- they could have used the tiny break of a couple more months before their lives fell completely apart. I imagine their mother would have wished the same for them. Damn. Heartbreaking.

                          I so agree with you.  Only the kids matter right now.  And holidays are forever changed for innocent children.  How sad.  Beth
