Just now, on CNN, Cate Edwards, Elizabeth’s daughter, said, “In her last days, we sat by her side and she kept looking at us back and forth saying ‘I’m ok, I’m ok’.”
She was comforting them. Tears, and more tears.
However, as we mourn, we can take some comfort in knowing that the insensitive, bigoted beasts from Westboro “Church” ended up looking like the pathetic little amoebas that they are:
Raleigh, North Carolina (CNN) — More than 1,200 mourners, including hundreds who loved and admired Elizabeth Edwards from a distance, packed a Raleigh church Saturday to pay respects to the activist and estranged wife of a failed aspirant to the presidency. [...]
Other public mourners included as many 150 supporters who gathered a few blocks away from the church for a counter-demonstration against a group of picketers from the controversial Westboro Baptist Church. [...]
In the end, only five Westboro congregants showed for the protest, which took place in a cold, steady rain.
