Elizabeth Edwards Funeral: John Edwards Will Attend, But Won’t Speak


Friday, December 10, 2010

John and Elizabeth EdwardsELIZABETH Edwards‘ estranged husband John Edwards will be attending her funeral in Raleigh, North Carolina, Saturday.

The funeral — which will be open to the public — will include eulogies from Elizabeth’s eldest daughter, Cate, and two close friends.

But former presidential hopeful John — who cheated on Elizabeth with mistress Rielle Hunter – won’t be speaking.

“Elizabeth would want it this way. She hated what John did but never stopped loving him,” a source told the PopEater website.

“She died in the home she built with John, surrounded by loving memories of their time together and at peace.

“He will never forgive himself for what he did to her and she will remain in his heart for the rest of his life.

“We were all praying for a miracle. But now realize Elizabeth was our miracle. Just having her in all our lives was the best gift of all. She will never be forgotten.”

Elizabeth passed away earlier this week after losing her valiant battle with cancer. She was 61.

Meanwhile, sources say Rielle — who is the mother of John’s love child Quinn — is hoping to tie the knot with the shamed politician.

“Rielle has been very patient through all of this,” an insider told RadarOnline.

“She still believes that John is her soul mate, and she thinks that they’re going to get married.

“She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She’s been selfish and horrible this whole time, no matter what else has been said about her.

“She will say nice things about Elizabeth, but only if it makes her look good.”

      A person who is a liar, can never be trusted. You can forgive the person, but you will never be able to believe anything that person says again because there will always be doubt. When John lied, it was over. Not the love Elizabeth had for him, but the trust she could never regain.

    Elizabeth you are now at peace with our Lord & Savior. May you always know the impact you made on so many…your strength, courage & grace.

  • Chris

    My heart has ached at every mention of her trials and illness. My prayers and sympathy go out to her family.

  • Cracker Jax

    What a wonderful class act woman she was. I feel like I’ve lost a very good friend. John is just a weak man and he deceived her terribly and she came to accept that. As for the “Huntress” she is a homewrecker and would have gone after any man who could provide her with a pocket full of money. She is without conscience and God help John Edwards if he continues this charade…he’s borderline the most hated man in America right now. He can only redeem himself by getting away from her.
    My condolences to Elizabeth’s children. She loved them so.

  • Linda

    Her struggles are over. Now she’s at peace with our blessed Savior. God Bless her children and also bless John. He will need all the blessing he can get in order to deal with the internal struggles that he have, and will continue to face. I’m sure he’s feeling the stench of what he put Elizabeth through

      Hopefully she is now in the right afterlife,That to me being Our Christ and Savior.We all think we know what was in her heart and soul. Bless HER chidren,may God be with them in this life we are ALL passing thru and may John ask for forgiveness for the things he did. Talk to our Savior everyday. It gives us peace. I know Johh did an awful thing and don’t get me wrong,for I think he was in the wrong too. I hope he see’s it and will ask our LORD to forgive him.We can ALL be saved by the blood of Christ.I would never hope someone to go to hell for any reason.All without SIN cast the first stone.

    i really admired elizabeth edwards , she was a good person and john edwards didnt deserve her, i don,t think much of him and that slut richelle . how could he do that to a wonderful woman . hope he rots in hell and that woman too. to put his and children through what he did he doesn,t deserve to be happy. she was a saint and he was a horrible, selfish person. god bless her.

      Um, Newt is a Republican. I seriously doubt that the Democrats fawn all over him. Why not put your brain in start before your mouth in gear.

  • swaps

    Once the Muslim law becomes the law of American land a man like Edwards will simply have a second wife and no big deal.

    Newt Gingrich dumped his ill wife and ran off with someone else and he is completely rehabilitated and the Democrats fawn over him as a possible presidential candidate yet again.

    It is sad that Mrs. Edwards became catastrophically ill and it is sad that John Edwards turned to another woman but it is illogical for you posters to say that when a spouse becomes catastrophically the well one has to suffer the disease too. I took care of my ill wife 10 years at home and she is still alive still a quadraplegi in a nursing home 20 years from her initial illness and women who would not go out with me (for dinner even) until I got divorced themselves have strayed from their original husbands and yet you moralists say nothing about the serial polygmany in America. How hypocritical…

    John and I are supposed to be saints for 20 years of celibacy while half the American women casually discard husbands and walk out the door because they are unhappy and do not feel fulfilled.

    If morality is relative, then the hundred million icorces who strayed from a healthy spouse are far more evil than John Edwards.

    WHAT MAKES RIELLE THINK THAT THIS SLEAZE-BAG WON’T DO THE SAME THING TO HER? SHE HAS NEITHER THE BEAUTY OR CLASS OF ELIZABETH SO IT SHOULDN’T BE TOO LONG BEFORE HE TIRES OF THE SAME KIND OF LOW LIFE HE IS. SHE BETTER HOPE SHE NEVER GETS SICK IN THE MEANTIME, BECAUSE “IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH MEANS NOTHING TO JOHN”.

  • Lynda Thornhill

    Elizabeth, I could not hold back the tears when I heard you had passed. What tragedys and pain you had to endure in your life but now you are resting in the arms of God and will forever be protected from all humiliation and pain.

    My prayers and love go out to your family and children. You loved them so dearly. Now you can hld your precious son in your arms you lost so many years ago. I can’t imagine what a reunion you must have had when you firt saw each other.

    We loved and admireed you Elizabeth. You were a role model for everyone going through pain and hardships in their live. You carried the torch for Cancer survivors and almost beat that wicked disease who has taken so many of our loved one.

    Rest in peace now.Sing with the Angels. Walk with God Know you were loved.

    SWAPS – WHAT ROCK DID YOU CRAWL OUT FROM UNDER? FIRST OF ALL IDIOT, NEWT GINGRICH IS NOT A DEMOCRAT. HE IS AS REPUBLICAN AS YOU CAN GET. i DO NOT LIKE WHAT HE DID ANYMORE THAN JOHN EDWARDS. THERE IS A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN A WOMAN THAT HAS BEEN IN A NURSING HOME FOR 20YEARS AND ONE THAT HAS BREAST CANCER. ARE YOU IMPLYING THIS GAVE HIM A REASON FOR CHEATING? AND THAT SO CALLED MISTRESS IS ONE UGLY BROAD. ELIZABETH ON THE OTHER HAND WAS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. MY SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO HER CHILDREN FOR LOSING HER AND ALSO FOR HAVING HIM AS A DAD!!

      JOHN WAS A GOOD MAN…….JUST ASK ALL THE SHEEPLE WHO VOTED FOR THAT REPTILE

  • Leslie

    Why would John Edwards even want to attend the funeral. Has he already forgotten that he didn’t care about her when he CHEATED on her. I would only hope that Cate gets custody of the smaller children. John is a liar and cheater and I don’t think that is a healthy mixture for the kids to be around and learn.

  • Lee

    I had the privilege of seeing Elizabeth in Michigan and she was very charming and so pretty. Although we do not know both sides of problems couples are having in their marriage, I feel that something went wrong. and it is to bad and very sad for the children.

    my prayers goes out for those kids.may God bless the family. God bless Elizabeth’s soul.

    For surving family members greving will see this and it makes the prosses more painful. Her father will never change and out of his own disrespect puplicly he will loose more then gained. Yes its horrble he is not who he should live up to be . and yes he cheated the family. I hope his daughter will try not to repeat this patten and she will have a real Man who will love and chersh her.

  • Maria T.

    Elizabeth, you are now in the hands of God and the angels.
    They will give you the peace that you deserve. Rest, sweet lady. Know that you will be terribly missed……

  • vincent

    Death is a must for all. but stop bringing necessary emotions after death as this is stupid. having more than one affair for men is is not new thing and in the real world having a second lover or a second wife is nothing strange

  • vincent

    rest in peace

  • Tom

    The agony of betrayal may have been worse for her to bear,
    than the sickness itself. In the end she is in a better place than being with her “husband”. May her soul rest in peace. Goodbye Elizabeth, you will dearly missed.

  • annie

    If he feels so bad about what he did to her why the hell he is still with Rielle? He is being a hypocryt, I bet they were just counting the days to her death to get married.

  • http://ElizabethEdwardsFuneral B. Duprey

    May God have mercy on her soul and give Elizabeth eternal
    peace and his abiding love….Good bye Elizabeth.

  • francine

    May you rest in eternal peace, Elizabeth. Once again reunited with the son you lost so many years ago. The joy you must feel holding him again and both of you being in God’s arms just waiting for the day when the rest of your children will join you. God bless you all.

    To Vincent,

    What planet did you come from. The woman had three children by this louse, lost a fourth child, developed cancer, and all the while, the phoney spouse is supposedly standing by his wife throught her sickness, but made time to father a child by someone of the same calaber who would take him to the cleaners for child support. THEY DESERVE EACH OTHER. Mistakes are made every day. This degenerate did exactly what he wanted to do, and there he stood FOR HIS CHILDREN’S SAKE AT HER FUNERAL. WHAT A FARCE. Elizabeth lived with her illness, what he did to a sick woma who loved him is absolutely disgusting. I Liar is a Liar, is a Liar. He better have money, as he will not be wanted anywhere. He should be working on a chain-gang, but this would be too good for him. His weak flesh tore her about, she rallied enough to go on long enough to write two books. This bimbo who he picked up with and he must understand each other very well. Sex is is Sex with anyone, but real love can find fulfillment with only one person as Grace Kelly said. Elizabeth found her love. No one will know who else he was with, he is so stuck on himself. EVERYONE GETS OLD. He is ot made out the of the stuff as Elizabeth was made out of, therefore, he did not stand by her. A degenerate, and opportunist. MAYBE HE WILL LIVE WITH IT, MAYBE IT WILL NOT BOTHER HIM. WHO REALLY CARES. HIS CHILDREN WILL FORM THEIR OWN OPINIONS OF HIM, IF THEY HAVEN’T ALREADY, AND IN THE END WHAT WILL HE HAVE, CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS MAYBE. HE COULD NEVER MEASURE UP TO WHAT ELIZABETH WAS MADE OF. LET HIM LIVE WITH IT.

  • DWEETTA

    I HOPE HE DO NOT GO , HE WAS A HORRIBLE HUSBAND , I WOULD NOT WISH HIM ON A DOG , BUT HUNTER CAN HAVE HIM NOW SHE DESERVE HIM , THEY BOTH DESERVE EACH OTHERS. JUST IMAGINE YOU ARE FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE AND HUSBAND IS HAVING UNPROTECTECTED SEX WITH A WHORE.

    • Enraged!

      Oh he was there, front and center. He’s not going to miss a chance to be in the spotlight. I bet he goes on Oprah before her season is over, full of remorse and trying to redeem himself. Her daughter Kate spoke beautifully and it was touching.
