I apologize! My post came out sounding rude, which I didn't mean it to.

I was surprised to learn that Terri went to mass that day. Because Michael has stated that she wasn't really that devout. His reason for denying Holy communion.

Again, I apologize

Felos said today that the court...Greer....ordered the cremation. Does that make sense?

Michael says her ashes will be buried in his familys private plot. Through Felos, Michael said Terris parents can erect a memorial to Terri anyplace they wish....except where she's buried.

He's a real prince.....of darkness

Seems to me if her wishes really were to die if faced with the situation she was in, her wishes would include her family being present at her funeral.

Wonder if MS will bring the new wife to the funeral. If he does I'm sure his family/friends will argue that was Terri's wishes as well.

A Catholic cemetery is not "required by the Catholic Faith"

I am on staff at a Roman Catholic Church, so I do have credible answers to your questions.
A Catholic does not have to be buried in a Catholic cemetery, but it is preferred. If a Catholic is buried in a non-Catholic cemetery a priest should conduct a graveside service in which the grave and remains or in Terri's case, cremains, are blessed and prayed over. If not, it is not a Catholic burial.

He would not allow daily Communion.

She couldn't swallow, it might have killed her early.

Terri's Holy Communion consisted of a drop of Precious Blood placed on her tongue. This would not have been enough to cause any "damage." Spiritually speaking with the voice of Faith, receiving the Blood of Christ would not under any condition, cause harm unless the person were in a state of serious mortal sin. Terri was given Precious Blood on Easter. Many Catholics believe that merely daily Communion would have sustained her for as long as God willed. There are documented cases of saints that lived years on only the daily Eucharist.

People sometimes don't realize the funeral mass is not a sacrament, but a celebration. And she can have one, body or not.

The funeral Mass, ie. The Mass of Christian Burial or The Mass of Resurrection is indeed a sacrament. Every Mass is a sacrament because the Eucharist is celebrated. The body MUST be present at the Mass of Christian Burial, if a body is not present then it is a Memorial Mass.

I hope the Schindlers will put up a headstone for Terri near where they live so they can visit the site and pour out their hearts.

I don't remember their names.. but I've read that MS pulled them both off feeding tubes and someone said Jodi's name was also in the obituary. i think they live in Florida too and died since 1990. Hope that helps:)

If this is sarcasm, then you forgot your tag, if your mocking my post then think about this, what does he have to lose by allowing HER FAMILY to attend. It would be a great first step in any possible reconciliation that could occur between the families.

Don't you think the whacko protestors will already be in attendance, do you think the family won't be able to attend the funeral with some dignity. I think they would, although I am giving them the benefit of the doubt. I haven't heard them utter one word similar to what you're saying, they've come close, but it's been civil.

So, if it was sarcasm fine, if you were mocking me, don't bother replying, as you have nothing to write or say that I want to read or hear.

Obviously the good citizens of PA don't take kindly to the shiavo family these days. They are complaining of death threats. If they thought they should be treated as celebrities they were mistaken. It seems the notoriety from michael's pursuit of murder has given them a bad name. Boo-hoo.

Thank you. I suppose he looks at that way. I certainly don't think Terri "won" anything.

I did not think he was Italian. Usually there is not the letter H in many Italian names. Who knows.

The Schiavos in Philadelphia were Italian, though. At least according to my husband.

Terri's mom looks Italian and so did Terri.

"To be married in the Catholic church, they must be a priest in attendance, along with certain ceremonies, that must be performed. [True]

"But these can be integrated into another ceremony *at another church."

*False: Not sactioned by the CC!
Some errant priest may do it but it is approved by the church.

We've noticed that AOL browswers won't open it. Other than that, if you have the latest version of Windows Media Player, you should be OK - it does take a while to load. It may say "done" while the play button is still greyed out; I've had to click the play button a couple of times but it does play.

Hopefully you'll find it worth the effort.
