WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Elizabeth Edwards made a lot of friends in the Port City. One couple had the privilege of knowing and working with her.
Nancy and Stan Bozarth worked with Edwards during campaigns. They describe her as grace under fire.
While her husband John Edwards was campaigning for president, Elizabeth Edwards was connecting with people and winning their hearts.
"Elizabeth was just an absolute dynamo-force to be reckoned with," Nancy Bozarth said.
A determined and loving woman, wife and mother is how Bozarth sums up Elizabeth. Nancy and her husband Stan devoted their time to the Edwards campaign. Nancy says Elizabeth always acknowledged hard work and gave thanks.
"She was such a voice, such a voice for so many people, and that's why I'm so upset," Nancy said.
It's a voice now silenced, but it's a legacy that lives on. Nancy Bozarth is proud she knew Elizabeth Edwards.
"Elizabeth had such a sense of mission about her family and being an advocate for people that we going through what she was going through," Bozarth said.
