Terri, rest in peace

The AP reports that Michael Schiavo's monstrosity extended even to preventing Terri's parents from being at her side to the end. [Minor change here, the original wording implied he let them stay at her side.]
The feud between the parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, and their son-in-law continued even after her death: The Schindlers' spiritual advisers said the couple had been at their daughter's besides minutes before the end came, but were not there at the moment of her death because Michael Schiavo did not want them in the room.

"And so his heartless cruelty continues until this very last moment," said the Rev. Frank Pavone. He added: "This is not only a death, with all the sadness that brings, but this is a killing, and for that we not only grieve that Terri has passed but we grieve that our nation has allowed such an atrocity as this and we pray that it will never happen again."
I was hoping for a miracle. It's difficult to understand why God lets things happen, but we can only press on with our faith, believing there's a higher purpose we can't yet fathom.

I still ask: even if Terri didn't want to live that way, do you really think she wanted to die that way?
