Elizabeth Edwards had a nice moment of cheer in her final days, reports People. Daughter Cate, 28, delivered the news that she and physician/boyfriend Trevor Upham got engaged over Thanksgiving. "Elizabeth was thrilled," a friend tells the magazine. The two met at Princeton, and Upham helped the family unravel the medical information surrounding Elizabeth's cancer. Her funeral is today, and Cate, an anti-discrimination lawyer, will deliver a eulogy, notes AP.
