It is tempting to make some kind of comment about her husband, but let’s show some class and respect for the dead. Ms. Edwards herself seemed like an okay person, and Cnn is reporting by breaking news email that she is dead.
I hope she left this world in as much peace and as little pain as possible. And I hope she finds happiness in the next world.
Update: The story is here. On facebook she recently announced her doctors had recommended against further treatment. This is what she wrote:
You all know that I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces – my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope. These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined. 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. It isn’t possible to put into words the love and gratitude I feel to everyone who has and continues to support and inspire me every day. To you I simply say: you know.
