Elizabeth Edwards

Although we knew this day was fast approaching, it is still a shock to think of Elizabeth Edwards in the past tense. However, we can be comforted by the knowledge that her example of courage, determination and grace will long be on display to inspire us and future generations. 

May she rest in peace.
