(Newser) – Elizabeth Edwards' will has been released, and there no mention of estranged husband John Edwards in it. He was sliced from a new will that was signed less than a week before Edwards' death from breast cancer last month at the age of 61. It leaves all of her possessions to her three children, with the eldest, a lawyer, named as executor, the New York Daily News reports.

"All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware, and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death I give and bequeath to my children," the will states. Edwards won't miss the money; the philandering one-time presidential candidate's net worth has been pegged at $25 million.
