    That's exactly what I was going to post.

    What did he have to lose by letting his so called "loving wife" be with her parents for that moment? Nothing. I still think he's evil.:angryfire

    R.I.P Terri. May you finally get the peace that you could not find in life.

    edit: Mercy, how'd you like it?

    Van, yeah, I know..I like to think there's a method to their madness..That's what I think they were trying to say about this issue (although I have NO idea what they were trying to say with the dolphinoplasty and kyle's "transformation"!!!:chuckle )

    i know this subject has been approached with so many explanations and theories...but through it all i feel like this woman was let down by her husband, judicial officials and of course the medical professionals, people she trusted would take care of her. the reason i say her husband is simply because he did not honor his vows(through sickness and health until death do us part) he has a live in fiance with two children.the medical doctors that said by removing the tube she wouldn't suffer but die peacefully, the judicial system for allowing her husband so much power by word of mouth and not written proof. for heaven's sake a nurse that could have been one of us heard him say "is the b*tch dead yet, am i about to be rich." this story has touched the lives of many people and has allowed us to be reminded the importance of a advance directive. my prayer is for everyone to realize justice was not served in this case. an innocent life was taken and cut short for personal gain. before you be quick to retaliate as another nurse stated this has been argued to death and she is in a better place now....

    moderator note: this post originated a separate thread - has now been merged.

    Here, I am not gonna argue with you. This has been done to DEATH already here on numerous threads regarding Terri.

    I will just say I hope her family can find peace now in all of this. Their appeasl are over. So is Terri's pain. I know she is in a better place, where no one is deciding her fate for her---where there is no agony. It's become about everyone BUT Terri, which to me, is disgusting. But, Terri is Home now. I am happy for HER.

    Amen.

    To show you how it's become about everyone else, word has it that there will be two separate memorials.

    Rest In Peace Terri Schiavo

    I wept as I read this.

    She has been gathered in the arms of the purest Love, and is gently being carried home. May she rest in eternal peace.


    May those on both sides of this issue find resolution and closure.

    Let us keep this thread as a loving tribute to Terri only.. and take what lessons we can from her life and her death.

    Welcome HOME, Terri.

    I think that was implying the over 700 posts on this thread! :wink2:
    I know - it just immediately struck me as strange to use that dead horse.

    She is dead now though.

    Again.. there are other threads on which this debate goes on.

    Please let us keep THIS one just for Terri.. to honor her and her struggle with both life AND death. Let us keep this thread as a tribute to her.. as our personal moment of silence and respect.
