Schiavo Kin: Parents Not Wanted at Burial
Guardian ^ | 3/31/05 | MICHAEL RUBINKAM

Posted on 03/31/2005 3:02:29 PM PST by hipaatwo

Associated Press Writer

LEVITTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Terri Schiavo's ashes will be buried in an undisclosed location near Philadelphia so that her immediate family doesn't show up and turn the burial into a media spectacle, a member of the Schiavo family said Thursday.

``If Mike knew they would come in peace, he would have no problem with it,'' Scott Schiavo, Michael Schiavo's brother, said during an interview at his home.

After an autopsy, Michael Schiavo plans to have his wife's body cremated and her ashes brought to Pennsylvania, where she grew up. Scott Schiavo said the ashes would be buried in a plot left by an aunt and uncle, but the family does not plan on providing the specficic location for the burial - underscoring the bitterness of the dispute.

Her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, had fought for years to prevent her feeding tube from being removed, and they opposed cremation and wanted her buried in Florida.

Neither Terri Schiavo's parents nor her siblings addressed the issue of her burial in their remarks to reporters in Florida on Thursday. A spiritual adviser to her parents, Paul O'Donnell, said they plan to hold a Roman Catholic Mass without her body sometime next week.

Scott Schiavo said he received a stream of calls Thursday from people denouncing him. On his answering machine was a message from a man from Texas who called the Schiavo family murderers.

Police made visits Thursday to both Scott Schiavo's home and the home of his brother, William, in Philadelphia, as a result of threats to the families.

Scott Schiavo expressed relief that his sister-in-law's ordeal was over, and anger at those who have attacked the Schiavo family.

``This isn't over by a long shot, We're going to get our name right,'' he said. ``The world is going to know who Mike was, they're going to know Mike wasn't a beast.''

At Terri Schiavo's alma mater, Archbishop Wood High School in Warminster, workers changed a sign that read ``Terri Schiavo, Class of 1981, We pray that you may live'' to ``We pray that you rest in peace.''

Good luck on that one.

That is just down right cold hearted of them.

They're behaving like Terri was a piece of property they bought from the Schindlers and won't allow them near it.

Just Damn!

Accuse someone of being a wife-beater for seven years without any real evidence to support said accusation, and they might not want to have you around for some odd reason.

To deny her own flesh and blood knowledge of she's going to be buried - the Schiavos are beyond depraved.

I confess that I had mixed feelings about the removal of the feeding tube.

But no mixed feelings on this. To deny the parents access to their daughter's burial is monstrous behavior.

This is the act of a vile man from a vicious family. And you're right. Good luck to them on restoring honor to their family name.

And this surprised you how? The two families have been going after each other for almost 10 years now. There is no love lost between the two families, no compassion for the other side, nobody is going to kiss and make up.

Doubt it's a Catholic cemetery it since the Schiavo family are Lutherans.

Oh come on... is anyone really surprised? Would the Schindlers ~really~ find any peace at any service Michael is organizing? Would their thoughts be of Terri or their hatred for the man across the aisle?

Most families can bury differences at family funerals. This family has extraordinary vitriol and no one should suggest they should have attended the same service. May they both find peace in services attended by their friends and loved ones, and may no one bring hatred in the door with them to any of the memorials to come.

If Michael Schaivo really wants to pursuade the world that his only interest was in carrying out his wife's wishes, then perhaps public statements saying that her parents aren't welcome at her funeral isn't the wisest course of action.

Even moreso as this has been a long-running dispute. It tells me that his real interest was in "getting" her family.

He must, or at least his family must. Otherwise, why would his brother be so concerned about the Schiavo name and Michael not being remembered as a beast.

Let's look back at this...Michael has been called a 'wife beater', 'murderer' and worse by the Schindlers and their spokesmen (the shrill Randall Terry especially and others) and it has escalated in the final days with all of the media coverage. Can anyone really expect him to forget all of this and make up. I am suprised he even will let them know what region of the country the service will be held.
As I and many others have posted before, there will be and is no good outcome from this whole episode...

My God. Every time I think it can't get worse - it does.

I believe M. Schiavo will be tortured by his actions or lack thereof, the rest of his days.

Real classy move. Does he intend to film himself peeing on the ashes and sending it to her parents before he throws them in a dumpster?

I dunno but as Catholics we know that the Church is a hospital for sinners, few of us are saints.

It is so difficult to not be outraged over this... and it will not end for her family even with this poor woman's untimely death.

A normal human being would bury her quietly in Florida where her entire family resides.

Heard an independent pathologist will not be allowed at the autopsy... only the resident coroner will do the autopsy.

It's unimaginable that this complete scumbag is being exonerated as the 'good guy' and the Shindlers are blasted as 'those evil' people by some.

Read all the gory details here: MANIFESTO OF THE WPPFF/WILD TURKEYS/COALITION OF THE SANE

A few samples...

This entire Schiavo business is bullsh*t. Why people get so worked up over it is a mystery.

Yes, she died. And all you guys can do is blame us. That's fine. Do it on the main forum. This is still OUR thread. God said "NO" to all your millions of prayers. It was his will...he wanted her. So get your bad self off our thread, because you are disrupting it..Leave us in peace.

Good is evil, evil is good, up is down, down is up, WEIRD!

It was hideous enough that the family was denied the comfort of spending time with Terri in her last moments, this is an utter outrage.

I have seldom seen such callous cruelty displayed on a public stage before.
