Elizabeth Edwards was a role model in public presentation. I admired and respected the manner in which she conducted her multiple roles as mother, wife, professional and woman. She seemed to present her own voice with grace and dignity. It seems easy to imagine that she left her children feeling very loved and valued. May God bless her family. May her spirit live on.

An elegent, eloquent,graceful soul has gone and I am very sad. I met her several times and found her to be a role model for all of us. She showed loyalty, strength, resilience, integrity in everything she did. Her ability to share her pain and hardships with others was a true selfless gift.She faced the world with hope and grace and made a real difference in peoples lives. An amazing woman who will live on through all the goodness she has done in the lives she has touched. Peace.
