The Roses were Pink

Terri Schiavo has finally been laid to rest. In the same cemetery as my dad. Originally her husband was taking her ashes back to Pennsylvania. Her family didn't like that idea and wanted her buried locally since most of their family is here. So, her husband changed his plans to accommodate them. NOW they don't like the grave marker. What next? You watch, the color of the roses in the vase won't suit. Hope the brother's Bush don't get involved again.

What is it with these people? They are NEVER satisfied. I just don't understand this family. The court order required the husband to notify the Schlinder family of a memorial service. He had no memorial service and doesn't plan one. He did notify the family that there had been an internment and the location of the grave. The blue urn containing her ashes was placed in a lead box along with two of Terri's stuffed animals. A beautiful arrangement of pink roses, white Calla lilies and baby's breath filled the bronze vase to overflowing. It was pouring down rain. There was a priest present because she was Catholic. Believe me, that's not a memorial service, that's an internment. We did that for my dad too. Memorial service at the church with friends, family, ministers, music, prayers, eulogies etc. The internment was ten days later at the cemetery when we placed the urn in the crypt along with an item he wanted buried with him. No ceremony, we just did it.

The Shindler's 15-minutes has turned into an hour. Their time is up. There is no longer an issue with the husband. If they want to work for a cause in her name, how about promoting filling out a living will? Visit her grave. It's exactly where you wanted it. But move on.

Right ON!
They don't want to let her die. They'd have to actually live their own lives.
They are hateful and hate filled. Very sad.
