Edwards is an addict who got rich.Unless you live local you may never even have heard his name. My prayers are with him. I hope he gets things right with the big guy upstairs before he passes. I've heard he is very ill.
Whatever

You don't have to live local to know someone lady. Edwards was a conman who came into a lot of money to fast. He was into drugs and criminal activities. I don't feel sorry for the man. There are a lot of good people out there that could use the money that he won and wouldn't have blown it like this jackass did.

Calm down, I feel sorry for any one who is an addict. But for the grace of God there go I. I read that most addicts are self medicating, and that the majority suffer from anxiety , depression,and other illnesses.
There are lot of good people that could use that money ,true, but we really never know what would become of us until we are put in a situation.

David got lost in all that cash. He didn't care about his daughter or his home town. He's addicted to Oxycotin as is his wife, Shawna.
He forced his mother-in-law to sell the house he bought her because Shawna remained on the title.
He's bed-ridden, and he can't walk. He lives his days in the basement in a hospital bed telling me how he loves the Lord. In the next breath it's "f" this and "f" that.
He sleeps with a loaded pistol under his pillow.
He needs our prayers.
He's a pathetic ghost of what he COULD have been.

I know all of you out there are all good church going upstanding citizens, and I am sure that had you hit the lottery and won all of that money you would have given it all to charity, helped feed a small third world country, saved the rain forest, brought about world peace, helped bring the US out of recession and finally shut Sally Struthers up about the starving children. But you didn't...David did. He did what he wanted to do, and none of you could tell me that you wouldn't do the same. So wipe the shit off your noses and shut up...

I never knew or met David Edwards but I did see him on a T.L.C show called lottery winners and he just came across as a total DICK. He was cocky & bragged about how much curtain items cost in his house, he was tanned had designer clothes on and he just acted like he had all the $ in the world when he only had 20 mill 2 play with after taxes. Even before the other show came out called Curse of The Lottery I knew that loser was gonna blow it all cause he just looked like that type of guy. I dont feel sorry 4 him cause when he was living the good life he presented himself like his shit didnt stink. David Edwards u r a fool and god does not like ugly and u did this 2 ur self u piece of shit

Does anyone know if David Edwards health really is bad as people say and if him and Shawna are still together? Like I said in my last posting he just came across as a totally Dick on the T.L.C special about lottery winners and to hear that he lost everthing from over spending and drug use makes me laugh cause people would kill 2 be in his shoes and he fucked it up 4 himself and another thing what happen 2 all of his so-called friends that hanged with him when he was rich r they still by his side
