Mr. Fredi D'Alessio's letter to the Florida Guardianship Association for their honoring Michael Schiavo for Terri's death

Congratulations Florida Guardianship Association!

According to your website:
FSGA is dedicated to promoting the protection, dignity, and value of incapacitated persons through a code of ethics, advocacy, and the dissemination of information. FSGA's mission also includes a focus on furthering the professionalization of guardians as accountable court representatives through education, networking, and legislative action.
A guardian is directed by ethics and statute to make decisions in the best interest of the ward.
And to be nominated for the Distinguished Guardian of the Year:
The awardee must:
meet the criteria for a Guardian set in FL Statue 744
demonstrate leadership and contribute to the Profession of Guardianship
The awardee should:
be recognized by his/her peers as a positive reflection of the profession
demonstrate a working knowledge of the FL Statues
represent his/her wards with service that improves the wards quality of life
The public stand you took in selecting Michael Schiavo for your Distinguished Guardian of the Year award is indeed a public service as it reveals just how far you have drifted from your original (I presume) good intentions. Thank you for no longer concealing the fact that you have nothing but contempt for everything and everyone you claim to stand for. Do complete this act of openness by updating your website accordingly.

Sincerely,

Fredi D'Alessio, California
