Terri Schiavo’s father, Robert Schindler, died last night of apparent heart failure at the age of 72. His health was broken by the ordeal of trying to save his daughter’s life and he never fully recovered from the horror of watching her dehydrate to death. The family is grieving. Any condolences can be sent to: Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, 5562 Central Avenue ~ Suite 2 – St. Petersburg, FL – 33707
What great witness Robert Schindler gave in trying to save his daughter. The very model of a Catholic father. I saw him once at Mass shortly after Terri Schiavo’s death and it looked like the weight of the world was bearing down on him. I pray for his family in this time and for the repose of the soul of this good and faithful servant.
Today is also the funeral of the Senator who led the fight against Terri Schiavo in the Senate. Praying also for the repose of Sen. Kennedy’s soul.
