Her suffering is over

After 15 years of severe brain damage and in her 14th day without food or water, Terri Schiavo died just after 9 Thursday morning.
David Gibbs is the Schindler family attorney. He said, "As you can imagine as a mom and dad, this is a very difficult day."
Even in her final hours, the bitter split between her husband and family was evident. Father Pavone, Schindler family friend and Schiavo's parents were not at her bedside when she died. Her husband Michael apparently was there.
The fight over Schiavo's life gained world-wide attention and reaction from the state house in Florida to the White House. Local and federal lawmakers took unprecedented measures to try and save Schiavo's life.
"I wish I could have done more. That's the sadness in my heart," Florida Governor Jeb Bush said.
Most polls showed that a majority of Americans felt that the politicians and lawmakers overstepped their bounds and that Schiavo's fate should be a private family matter. Of course Terri Schiavo's life and eventually her death were very public.
Even in death, the fight over Terri Schiavo continues. There is still a heated battle over how and where she will be laid to rest.

After a long fight, Terri Shiavo's suffering is finally over. She will no longer have to live through the church,politicians, and the public in general way over stepping their bounds and invading her family's privacy. Her husband can finally, after all this time, lay her to rest.
