No Forgiveness for John Edwards
The National Enquirer reports that when John Edwards realized that the end was near he begged his betrayed wife for forgiveness, but Elizabeth refused to relent.
On her deathbed, a hurt, angry Elizabeth screamed at John, saying You ruined my life Ill NEVER forgive you!
Reports say that John Edwards repeatedly broke down in tears, and actually doubled over with grief at Elizabeths bedside. But she showed John no remorse. Nothing he said could change Elizabeths mind.
The only concession Elizabeth was willing to grant her cheating husband was to pray with him that God would give him the strength to protect and raise their two young children, Jack and Emma Claire, after she was gone.
Cutting John Edwards Out of Her Will
Not only did Elizabeth refuse to forgive John as she neared death, she informed John that shed changed her will to cut him off from part of their $53 million fortune if he married his mistress, Rielle Hunter, after she died.
As she lay dying, Elizabeth Edwards also unleashed her anger at Rielle Hunter for destroying her marriage and ruining the bright political future John Edwards had.
According to reports. Elizabeth also had a few choice words for Rielle before she died, screaming to John that Rielle . will 'rot in hell!
A source close to the Edwards family reported that when it finally dawned on John that the end was near for Elizabeth, and that she would never forgive him, he collapsed.
No doubt John realized that the stress of dealing with his infidelity, and the bitterness and rage she felt about his betrayal served to hasten Elizabeth Edwards death.
The animosity Elizabeth harbored for his mistress, Rielle Hunter, was probably a contributing factor , as well.
Elizabeth Edwards' deathbed words will probably haunt John Edwards for the rest of his life.
I don’t think there are any good people in this story.
So sad and painful to read that. The 10 Commandments are there for a reason.
Can't decide if I want it to be a long and lonely one, or a short and well-haunted one.
Oh well, it's not up to me anyway.
She must have been pretty strong to be doing all that ‘screaming’. Usually cancer patients are barely there when death is near. They’re certainly not screaming at anyone.
Oh please,,, lol
You can only live with them.
Yeah, but...her deathbed actions may haunt her for an eternity.
Your sins will find you out.
I highly doubt it.
In fact, I'd bet money he left her bedside, checked his hair and bedded is mistress that night.
Edwards is a phony in every respect. It’s a shame it took her so long to figure it out.
Why didn’t she just bar him from her presence and die in peace? And cut him out of the will, period, regardless of whether he marries the mistress.
Sounds like she died bitter and angry. I’m so sad for those young trophy test-tube kids they produced.
How sad, to die and be so bitter, I cannot blame her, it’s just all so tragic, mankind is a vicious animal in many ways ...
this POS is probably only haunted by the money he will lose.
Are you sure this isnt what Al gore Screamed at W?
She was willing to keep quiet about the matter as he was seeking the White House. She needs to let it go.
My thoughts as well. She should have forgiven him, then let God deal with him in His own way.
No disrespect for the dead intended, but I doubt Rielle ruined either.
Elizabeth, being a lawyer, should have known that. After all, she married an extremely sleazy one.
Prayers for the children.
PT Barnum said it,, there’s a sucker born every minute. I call BS on this article.
BTW, how much would you like to bet he already has another girl friend?
That’s harsh. I’ve sometimes wondered if I would unleash some harsh truths on my deathbed. I don’t think I would.
Chapter XX of the Life Styles of the Rich and Famous.
He’s a shallow person so he’s already over any guilt.
He outlived her so he won in the revenge game.
Exactly right. The ambulance chaser was in no hurry to get a divorce from a dying wife. Any money he got in the will was tax free.
It was against her adulterous husband not against God. Hopefully God will visit some karma on Edwards.
The only other rag......er......trusted news source that could be believed to carry such an obviously true news piece would be The National Enquirer.
Of course he collapsed, just thinking of all the money he'd be out.
It’s too bad she didn’t either forgive him or ignore him. Dying full of anger and hatred hurt only her, not him.
As much as I pray for her redemption, I am afraid she was the angry beatch to the very end.
What a pissy, poorly written article. She is trying to move our sympathy from the dying woman to her scumbag husband. What is with using the word “remorse” in referring to what Elizabeth won’t do? Remorse is not the right word.
It was within Elizabeth’s power to extend grace and forgiveness. As a Christian I believe she would have been obedient to extend forgiveness. It would have helped her reach a better state of peace in this life. But John had no right to expect or demand forgiveness. Grace is not grace if it is owed.
This story moves me to be sad for Elizabeth. John’s pain does not move me in the least.
I admire her restraint.
I agree with Elizabeth Edwards ... Infidelity is the greatest of all sins.
I could see him excusing himself from her bedside to make sure his hair was perfect in case photographers were in the hallway, though.
He’d be just the sort of weasel to try to spin his wife’s dying into his own personal pity party. Can he just go away now, please?
The Regime Media has always painted this evil pair of lawyers as saints: both horrible, horrible people who deserved each other.
agreed ... some homosapiens simply don’t have a conscience ...
That’s their story. You believe it?
Odd. In her last public statement, God was strangely absent from her message.
"The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered," she wrote. "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."
"I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope," she writes. "These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined. The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that."(from her facebook page)
You know, though she was as grasping as him in her own way...I hope this story is true.
Has John booked the Dave Matthews Band yet?
I don't believe that for a minute.
John Boy is a King of Torts type trial lawyer.
With the Obama regime in power, John has basically unlimited income potential.
“Elizabeth Edwards’ deathbed words will probably haunt John Edwards for the rest of his life.
Yeah, but...her deathbed actions may haunt her for an eternity. “
You are absolutely right....especially if she has ever prayed the “Our Father.”
....(as we forgive those who tresspass against us....)
I really doubt John “ruined” her life as much as cancer did and I serious doubt John cared whether she forgave him. If he cared at all, it was about getting cut out of the will, which may not mean much either depending on North Carolina inheritance laws.
In reality, Elizabeth had no power to hurt John and John knew this which is why he had the affair to begin with. NEVER confuse Democrats with human emotions. All a Democrat ever sees is political opportunism not genuine grief or sorrow. John lived his life for the power and his wife and children were merely props.
I bet Edwards never marries Rielle Hunter and not just because of Elizabeth’s will. ‘Silky Pony’ got reeled in. Not that he didn’t deserve it, but likely she got pregnant for whatever money she could get out of it. I bet he is sorry now, but it is too late.
Did he mean it when he apologized or was he just in it for the money? He did make her life a living nightmare.
$ 53 million can buy a new girl friend ... or three ...
