Bobby Schindler Responds to Schiavo Grave Inscription

Topics: Terri Schiavo's Life Matters

Unfortunately, Terri Schiavo's biological family, the family that fought so hard to prevent her from being starved and dehydrated to death, continue to endure one agony after another as a result of Michael Schiavo's apparent complete lack of human compassion.

As written in my previous post, the cremated remains of Terri Schiavo were buried yesterday at Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park in Clearwater, Florida in the presence of her husband, Michael Schiavo, at least one of his brothers, and a priest. Terri's grave marker is inscribed at the bottom with the words "I kept my promise," although just which promise that was and to whom isn't made clear. We all know that he would like everyone to believe that the promise was to Terri, but no one other than Michael and his own relatives ever verified that Terri ever asked him for a promise 'to starve and dehydrate her to death' or that he in fact made such a promise to her. However, Terri was in fact starved and dehydrated to death by judicial fiat, she was cremated, and contrary to a court order -  she was buried without her immediate family being notified in advance of the service.

Michael used a bronze grave marker to list Feb. 25, 1990, as the date his wife died. Feb. 25, 1990, is the date Terri Schindler Schiavo experienced a still unknown event that left her severely mentally disabled. Terri Schiavo actually died March 31, 2005, nearly two weeks after her feeding tube was removed by court order, so, like everything else related to Terri's mysterious collapse, nothing Michael Schiavo says rings of the whole truth.

Now, owing to Michael Schiavo's most recent insult to the memory of his sister, Bobby Schindler, Terri's brother, released the following statement in reponse to the inscription on Terri's burial site marker.

"This clearly illustrates the spiteful lengths to which Michael Schiavo will go in order to purposely hurt those that loved Terri unconditionally - her family. It seems to me that the only intention of this inscription was to be hurtful, and had absolutely nothing to do with Terri, but only to cause my parents additional pain over the loss of their child. Maybe even more tragic, is that in doing so, Michael Schiavo shows nothing but a lack of respect for Terri."

As Tim at ProLifeBlogs points out, "The inscription also contradicts Michael's 1992 testimony he gave during a malpractice suit against Terri's doctor that ended in his favor. Michael testified, "I believe in the vows that I took with my wife. Through sickness, in health, for richer or poorer. I married my wife because I love her and I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I'm going to do that.""

Perhaps Michael Schiavo expects the inscription on Terri's grave to help sell more of his  upcoming book

Kevin McCullough comments on the interpretation of Terri Schiavo's autopsy that is promoted by the mainstream press.  He writes,

The sad part of all of this early spin-doctoring did very little to bring clarity to the picture of what really happened with Terri, and her potential outcome could be.

Terri's family released their own findings from observation of the official autopsy results. None of which were even acknowledged by the mainstream press, much less refuted successfully by George Felos and Michael Schiavo.
