And the sad saga takes another ugly twist:
The seething feud between Terri Schiavo’s parents and husband raged on even after her death, as both families planned separate funerals for the woman whose final months riveted the nation and reached all the way to the halls of Congress and the White House.
The matter of burying Schiavo, though, is something the two sides have had to settle themselves. The Schindlers, who are devout Catholics, wanted their daughter’s remains buried in Florida, where they live. Michael Schiavo, however, has custody of the body and plans to have his wife cremated.
Schiavo’s ashes will be buried in an undisclosed location near Philadelphia so that her immediate family does not attend and turn the moment into a media spectacle, said Scott Schiavo, Michael Schiavo’s brother. A funeral Mass, a concession to the Schindlers, was tentatively scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday.
Can we all agree that THIS is a private family matter, or are we going to have to watch jackals like Randall Terry insert themselves into this issue, providing us with the real spectacle of jackals fighting over a corpse?
