Somewhat Random Flickr Friday....

John and Elizabeth Edwards
Originally uploaded by justhman.

When Elizabeth Edwards publicly announced that her cancer had returned, I sent her a card telling her I was wishing her and her family well and sending my prayers (Buddhist as they are.) And, to thank them for representing my father, who has retired in North Carolina.

Imagine my surprise when I received a little notecard in the mail....
Dear Jill,

When I announced my cancer had returned, the outpouring of compassion and support I received was overwhelming.

I appreciate that you took time from your busy life to think about me. Your kindness lifts my spirits and your caring touches my heart.

I'm feeling strong and appreciate all your support. Thank you so much for the encouraging words.


Elizabeth Edwards

Dignified. Compassionate. Classy.

Namaste, Elizabeth!

(and yes....I donated $6.10 to get Bobbie Edwards Pecan Pie to celebrate Mr. Edwards birthday on Sunday- 6/10.)

She is a class act. What a great thing to get in the mail and what a thoughtful gesture for you to send her a card in the first place!
