With Dignity, Grace and Respect

I'm sure this has begun to make its way through the blogsphere, and I want to help ensure this message is shared, that these voices are heard, and that Casey be remembered as the hero he is, and that he be honored with dignity, grace and respect.

I understand that his mom is grieving, and I feel for her, but I have to agree, that her actions appear to be politically motivated and do nothing to honor her son's memory, and his sacrifice.

The email (below) is from Cherie Quarterolo, who is speaking for the family and is Casey Sheehan's godmother. The email, with the statement contained, follows:

Hello again Melanie,

Our family has been so distressed by the recent activities of Cindy we are breaking our silence and we have collectively written a statement for release. Feel free to distribute it as you wish. Thanks – Cherie

In response to questions regarding the Cindy Sheehan/Crawford Texas issue:
Sheehan Family Statement:

The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.


Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.
