I thought a lot about you as my wife, Pat, was going through her battle with stage 4 breast cancer. She succumbed before you.

God bless you both!

PS Pat read your book during her battle and it meant a lot to her.

I'll never forget this beautiful lady. Although I never knew her personally,
I think I am a good judge of character
and this lady was outstanding in all, sways.
I use her life as a role model to my patients and friends and when speaking about breast cancer, women's issues and rights, or just being a good human being whom others can appreciate and love.

And no resident will say: “I am sick…”Isa 33:24. We can expect this to be a reality in the near future; perhaps you or I may see those missing from our lives due to sickness that leads to death. Prayers go out to the surviving Edwards' family and friends.

I think of you often and try to celebrate your life. You will alway be known by me as an amazing lady.

From a distance, Elizabeth Edwards was a person of outstanding accomplishments, but what stands out is her courage and compassion. She left the world better than she found it and "made a difference" in the lives of all she touched..., even those of us who only saw and heard her from a distance. The company of good and honorable people has lost a paragon of human dignity with her passing.
God Bless her family and friends and thank God for her time among us.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

To the Edwards Family,

I met Elizabeth several times while involved with John's campaign. What a dynamic individual. She made an indelible impression on me I will never forget especially in the avdersity of her battle with cancer. I lost my mother and brother to cancer and have a niece who is battling breast cancer. I will never forget Elizabeth, the epitome of grace and warmth.

God bless your family and may your many wonderful memories of Elizabeth sustain you in the days and years ahead.
