This news is sickening. Elizabeth Edwards was a lovely woman, who fought cancer as hard as she could, but lost the battle on Tuesday. Edwards, was the wife of former Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards.
John and Elizabeth Edwards were estranged at the time of her death due to his infidelity, which spawned a love child with Rielle Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards funeral is set to be held on Saturday in North Carolina. Hopefully the people at the Westboro Baptist Church will realize the harm this is sure to do to the Edwards family and change their minds.
