Apparently when Elizabeth Edwards died she wanted a tombstone with a quote on it from the Leonard Cohen song Anthem. Seems like a simple request. Too bad John Edwards couldn't be troubled to do it. He just had the standard free plate in the ground that came with the burial plot so all of Elizabeth's siblings chipped in to buy her one after asking John several times and him saying no or he was too busy. What a prick. Look. I understand if you found someone else to replace your wife but she was also the mother of most of your children. Don't you think they would have liked to have her wishes respected and the tombstone made and installed? You were married to her when she died. You did cheat on her while she was dying of cancer. Don't you think you could at least have bought her a tombstone?
