Elizabeth Edwards' Grave Has Headstone After Cemetery Visitors Expressed Concern

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A permanent marker has been placed on the grave of Elizabeth Edwards, the popular author and deceased wife of two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards.

A modest marble footstone was installed last week at Raleigh's Oakwood Cemetery. The marker was commissioned by Elizabeth Edwards' siblings and is carved with lyrics from a Leonard Cohen song she placed on her kitchen wall shortly before she died of cancer in December 2010.

A more elaborate headstone is still planned from the same sculptor who chiseled the towering angel adorning the neighboring grave of Edwards' 16-year-old son Wade, who died in a 1996 auto accident.

The Associated Press reported last month that people touring the historic cemetery had expressed concern that Edwards did not yet have a stone so long after her death.
