Terri Schiavo Memorial

A division of Memory in Heart

Light a candle, then be quiet, bless Terri Schiavo in the heaven!

With a deep mourning I heard Terri Schiavo was declared death this morning on March 31, 2005. Over the night I created this Terri Schiavo Memorial website in memory of her. With our upmost godliness, let's bless Terri Schiavo's soul in the heaven, would never suffer any pain. Personally I disagree the removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube. Now Terri Schiavo has left us, please stop any quarrel. Let's give Terri Schiavo some quietness in the heaven. Let's bless Terri Schiavo together. God bless Terri Schiavo!

Terri Schiavo



Theresa Marie Schiavo (December 3, 1963-March 31, 2005), commonly known as Terri Schiavo (pronounced shI-vO), was an American woman in a persistent vegetative state whose husband's successful efforts to discontinue life support prompted a fierce debate over bioethics, euthanasia, legal guardianship, federalism, and civil rights, while overcoming active counter-efforts to keep her alive.

On February 25, 1990, Terri Schiavo suffered severe brain damage caused by a cardiac arrest, believed to have been brought on by chemical imbalances in the blood due to bulimia. She was hospitalized at the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast in Pinellas Park, in the Tampa Bay area. On March 18, 2005, her gastric feeding tube was removed under court order. The removal of the feeding tube resulted in Schiavo's death by dehydration. Florida courts had previously ruled that Schiavo was in a persistent vegetative state and consequently could not experience the suffering normally associated with starvation and dehydration, because conscious awareness is impossible in the absence of cortical activity. An autopsy is expected to be performed.

Michael Schiavo, her husband and legal guardian, contends that he carried out his wife's wishes not to be kept alive in her vegetative state. Mrs. Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, who are both practicing Catholics, dispute Mr. Schiavo's position, as have Mrs. Schiavo's brother and sister. The courts all ruled in favor of Mr. Schiavo, and the feeding tube was removed three times. The parents vigorously appealed the decisions, leading to the reinsertaion of the feeding tube the first two times. Vatican officials, U.S. President George W. Bush, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, many Republicans, and several Democrats in the Florida Legislature and U.S. Congress have sided with Mrs. Schiavo's parents. Other groups and individuals, including the American Civil Liberties Union as well as many Democratic and several Republican legislators, have expressed support for the position of Michael Schiavo.

Terri Schiavo died on March 31, 2005, at around 9:05 a.m EST, after 13 days without a feeding tube.
