Minus the mourned, family and friends remember Terri SchiavoTopics: News
(ABC Action News)GULFPORT - Friends and family members gathered to say their final goodbyes to Terri Schiavo last night.
The struggle over the brain-damaged woman's life and death captivated the nation after her feeding tube was removed last month, and emotions in the controversial case clearly remain high.
There were few dry eyes in the house Tuesday night at the Most Holy Name of Jesus church in Gulfport, where at least 1,000 people packed themselves in, and in some cases stood outside, to remember Terri.
"I wasn't going to speak tonight, but I thought it was important to share something with you," Terri's brother Bobby Schindler told the gathered mourners.
Fighting back tears, Bobby told surprised guests that the family had received a Purple Heart in the mail from a Vietnam veteran. Holding the medal up for all to see, Bobby explained that the soldier told them in a letter that accompanied the award that Terri was like a hero.
