Cancer Sucks

...and having John Edwards for a husband was no prize either.

We note the passing of Elizabeth Edwards, aged 61 years, after a long fight with cancer.  She was a mother who buried a teenage son, a tragedy without solace.  While she freely chose the life of a politician's wife, that task appears to be a tremendous burden even when things go well.  In the midst of her dire struggle with cancer she suffered public humiliation at the hands of a philandering husband.  She suffered more, and more publicly, than her share I think.

May memories of better times be a comfort to her family and friends.
