Elizabeth Edwards dies at 61 after battle with breast cancer

Elizabeth Edwards died December 7 morning in North Carolina at the age of 61 after a long battle in breast cancer Elizabeth was an attorney and also a bestselling author. At the time of her death, she was separated from her husband John Edwards, the former U.S. Senator from North Carolina who was the 2004 United States Democratic vice-presidential nominee.

"Today we have lost the comfort of Elizabeth's presence but she remains the heart of this family," said a family statement. Estranged husband John and other family members and friends had gathered in recent days.

"The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered," Edwards wrote on Facebook yesterday. "We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful."
