Quote from Elizabeth Edwards

A year ago today, Elizabeth Edwards, went home to heaven and a few days later we remembered her here on our blog…  On this the first anniversary of her “going home” I thought it fitting to again share one of my favorite "words of wisdom" quotes that this courageous mom shared with the world after the death of her beloved son Wade in 1996 (and as many of you will remember, that is when she retired from being a lawyer) ~ 

At this challenging time of year, the sentiments of this quote are even more poignant… Cherie Houston 

"If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention their child because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died -- you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that is a great gift. "

How blessed she was to have her son Wade waiting for her - I'm sure their reunion a year ago was just as wonderful as she'd always imagined.... R.I.P. Elizabeth Edwards ~ you were an inspiration to so many of your “sisters in grief
