Terri Has Died

Terri Schindler-Schiavo died today. Unfortunately, her family was not allowed to be with her at the time of death. Her "guardian," Michael Schiavo, was with her. Now there will be battles over her burial: the family wants her to receive a Catholic burial in Florida, and Michael Schiavo wants her to be cremated and taken to a family plot in Pennsylvania. No doubt Michael Schiavo will prevail in his wishes.

Eternal rest grant unto Terri, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her. And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
