RIP. You're a hero. I hope you're having a wonderful reunion with your daughter.
Godspeed to your surviving family.
the stress he endured, probably stole years from his life.
I am sure that is very true. We know a lot more now about how stress hormones affect the heart and other organs. People can and do die of broken hearts.
Too bad our leaders couldn’t/wouldn’t recognize/support the simple commitment/devotion of a father for his daughter and embrace their moral responsibility and sworn duty to protect and preserve her life from a murderous husband and complicit judge, medical establishment, and law enforcement.
Nor did they honor his hard work and lifelong commitment to care for his disabled daughter in her illness, which her husband has been accused of contributing to.
Thank you, Mr. Schindler, for your courageous battle to save your daughter’s life, which will never be forgotten.
We will miss you!
Yes, the stress and pain he endured certainly led to an early death. He’s with Jesus now, and free of earthly pain and suffering.
RIP Mr. Schindler. You fought a good fight for Terri.
Prayers for the family.
I had the pleasure of bringing Bobby out here for a prolife conference in June. In my several days with him, I learned of the devotion this family has for one another. Bob Sr. was crushed by the ordeal, and the foundation established in Terri’s name gave him a purpose and a new focus. He centered his daily life around the affairs of the office. But his sadness lingered. What decent, courageous, selfless individuals these people are. Humility is Bobby’s hallmark. It’s as if Satan’s minions sought out the finest among us to destroy; but their faith in Our Lord proved greater. They are truly a template for the rest of us on how to be of service in a noble cause.
A good man - RIP
God bless...Rest in peace.
very sad news. may God bless this family
May he Rest in Peace and our prayers are with his and Terri’s loved ones.
God rest his soul. Surely he will hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord.” The joy of seeing the Lord and of seeing his beloved Terri will erase all sadness. The tears have been wiped away.
