To lose someone

This will be a short one...
I'm not really sure why, but the death of Elizabeth Edwards has been on my mind much more than it should be. I only say this, because I didn't personally know her. Maybe it's because I had only just read about her doctors stopping treatment of her cancer, then hours later, I read that she had died.

It's just so sad, how quickly she passed on. I can't imagine the suffering while she was going through treatments... treatments that obviously weren't working. I mean, looking at pictures of her, you would never know anything was wrong.

It's terrible and I hurt for her... for the pain caused by cancer, and for the pain caused by her husband's infedility... all within the same time frame.

We all deserve so much more out of life than an ending such as that and I really hope that her last year, her last month... her last hours, were spent exactly as she wanted to spend them...

It touched me too, and has prompted some thoughts for a future post.
I totally understand how you feel.
