If the stone was stolen and/or destroyed he would have to find another way. And it's not really clear if the Elixir of Life would prevent unnatural death - such as the Avada Kedavra curse. It sounds more like it only prevented natural death from aging.
I doubt that. The Aveda Kedavra curse does not kill instantaneously. Remember, both Sirius and Bellatrix laughed just after they'd been hit. It more simply stops the heart. No damage or anything, but the heart stops. However, with the elixer, you wouldn't really have any need for a heart, as both the brain and all muscles wouldn't need the fresh oxygen to survive.

The world is populated by shoulda-beens, coulda-beens, and woulda-beens, and the few who had the courage to do it. Grab your destiny or fade into obscurity. There is no middle ground.

Remember, men who see the world a little differently are viewed as insane. The Christians were. They still are.

Every group of people must go through some suffering. Americas is approaching fast.
