The Ferguson's from South Carolina write the Florida Guardianship Association

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO REPRESENT THE DISABLED PEOPLE OF FLORIDA. YOUR ORGANIZATION SHOULD HAVE FOUGHT FOR TERRIS LIFE. THERE WAS NEVER ANY WRITTEN INDICATION, OR ANY OTHER BELIEVABLE INDICATION THAT TERRI WOULD HAVE WANTED TO TAKE SUCH DRASTIC MEASURES TO END HER LIFE AS A DISABLED WOMAN. SO MUCH MORE COULD HAVE BEEN DONE FOR HER AND IF YOU CARED, YOU WOULD HAVE READ THE WHOLE AUTOPSY WHICH SHOWED THAT TERRIS FRONTAL LOBES WERE FULLY INTACT AND WORKING FINE. SHE FELT THE PAIN OF STARVATION AND DEHYDRATION, WHICH IS WHY THE DRUGS WERE ADMINISTERED. SHE GASPED FOR BREATH WHILE YOU WERE PLANNING ON AWARDING THIS POOR EXAMPLE OF A HUMAN BEING NO LESS A HUSBAND AN AWARD? SHAME ON YOU.

I PRAY YOU WOULD REALIZE HOW INAPPROPRIATE IT WAS TO DO WHAT YOU DID, AND HOW MUCH ADDITIONAL GRIEF YOU CAUSED EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED TERRI'S FIGHT FOR LIFE, WHICH ACCORDING TO ZOGBY'S POLL, THE ONLY ONE WRITTEN WITHOUT A BIAS SLANT, OVER 80 PERCENT SUPPORTED LEAVING TERRI ALONE TO LIVE WITH HER PARENTS. THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO DESERVED THE AWARD. THEY WERE TRUE TO THEIR DAUGHTERS BEST INTERESTS AND FOUGHT FOR HER TILL THE END. THEY WERE THEY ONES THAT EXEMPLIFIED WHAT A TRUE GUARDIAN SHOULD BE AND DO. NOT A MAN WHO HAS NOT EVER AGREED TO GO ON THE RECORD ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED THE NIGHT OF TERRIS INJURIES. HE REFUSES TO BE QUESTIONED, AFTER INTERVIEWS HE HAS GIVEN OVER THE YEARS CLAIM MANY DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE EVENTS THAT LED TO TERRIS BEING DISABLED. THIS MAN STAGED THE STORY OF WHAT WOULD BE RELEASED ABOUT HIS WIFES LAST MOMENTS, GRABBING THE STUFFED CAT OF TERRIS AND SHOVING IT UNDER HER ARM, "CRADLING" HER BODY THAT RESEMBLED A HOLOCAUST VICTIM, WITH MICHAEL GIVING HER A ROSE, WHEN TERRI WOULD HAVE BEGGED FOR THE WATER IN THE VASE IF SHE COULD HAVE. HE RELEASED THIS SCENARIO BY ACCIDENT TO A NETWORK WEBSITE, WHO POSTED IT BEFORE TERRI DIED! THIS IS THE MAN YOU HONORED!!

THE SAME MAN SO BITTER ABOUT THE MONEY HE WAS LOOSING IN TERRIS BANK ACCOUNT EVERY DAY, THAT HE WOULD CAUSE SO MUCH PAIN FOR HER PARENTS FOR SO MANY YEARS. THE MAN WHO COULD NOT LET GO OF HIS MEAL TICKET, EVEN IN DEATH. HE IS NOW LOOKING FOR A PUBLISHER FOR HIS BOOK, AND SELLING THE RIGHTS TO TERRIS STORY, ACCORDING TO HIM. HE WILL MAKE A LOT MORE THAN THE PALTRY MILLION OFFERED HIM TO LET TERRI LIVE. HE KNEW THAT. IF HE HELD OUT, HE WOULD GET 10 TIMES THAT, AND HAVE A LUCRATIVE SPEAKING CAREER AS WELL. tHIS FROM THE MAN EVERYONE SAID HATED TO WORK TO MAKE A LIVING. TERRIS DEATH MADE SURE HE HAD IT MADE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. LETTING HER LIVE WOULD NOT HAVE YIELDED THE SAME INCOME. I AM SO SADDENED THAT NO ONE CARED ENOUGH TO AT LEAST SPARE HER PARENTS THE EXTRA GRIEF FROM THIS SLAP IN THEIR FACE, AND HONOR TERRIS LIFE WITH THOSE WHO TRIED TO PROTECT IT. IF THERE WERE CONCRETE PROOF THAT TERRI WANTED TO DIE, THAT IS ANOTHER STORY. BUT THAT WAS NOT HER STORY.

YOUR DIRECTOR SHOULD BE FIRED AND SOMEONE SHOULD ISSUE AN APOLOGY TO THE PARENTS OF TERRI SCHIAVO AND THE OTHER AMERICANS WHO PRAYED THAT THIS MAN WITH NO INTEGRITY WHATSOEVER WOULD GO AWAY SIMPLY LET HER LIVE. HOW YOU COULD DO THIS, I HAVE NO IDEA . IF I WERE A DISABLED PERSON IN FLORIDA, WHO HAD NOT RELOCATED YET AFTER TERRIS DEATH, HOPING FOR THINGS TO GET BETTER. . . I WOULD CALL FOR A U HAUL IMMEDIATELY
