Elizabeth Edwards’ three children are set to receive an estate worth almost $1.5 million, reports Raleigh's News & Observer. The family won’t have to pay estate tax because the law expired last year, when she died. Edwards owned two homes, one valued at $6.75 million and the other at $1.2 million, and she also was a best-selling author. If the figure seems relatively low, it might be because further assets are likely contained in a trust cited in probate documents. As reported earlier, the will doesn't even mention husband John.
