- PINELLAS PARK, Fl
(Christian Wire Service) -- Terri Schiavo is very much alive and responsive.
That is what lawyers for Robert and Mary Schindler saw when they visited
Terri Schiavo in her room at the Woodside Hospice in Pinellas Park, FL,
on Christmas Eve.
- Attorney David Gibbs III and Attorney Barbara Weller,
of Gibbs Law Firm in Seminole, FL, took on the role of lead counsel for
the Schindlers in September of 2004. The Christmas Eve visit was the first
time either of the attorneys had been able to see Terri since taking the
case. They made the visit with Terri's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler,
and members of her immediate family.
- Counsel was able to personally verify the fact that Terri
is not in a coma or even in a comatose state. She was purposefully interactive,
curious and expressive with her parents during the entire 45-minute visit.
Mrs. Weller wrote a moving narrative describing in detail her reactions
and observations during this visit. (Mrs. Weller's narrative is available
online at http://www.terrisfight.org/press/BJWnarrative.html.)
