Cindy Sheehan Still Too Busy For Son's Grave

Nearly two years after his tragic death in Iraq, Casey Sheehan’s mom Cindy is blaming others for the fact that his grave site is unmarked after all this time. From The Reporter in Vacaville, CA:

A Vacaville funeral home owner took exception to “Peace Mom” Cindy Sheehan’s allegation that his mortuary did not fulfill its duties after her son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004.

In her blog last week, Sheehan wrote that the mortuary had refused to pay the cemetery as it was supposed to. Steve Nadeau, the mortuary’s owner, said Monday that not only did he properly pay the cemetery, but that he subsidized the process with his own money.

This was not the only way in which he went above and beyond his responsibilities following Casey’s death, said Nadeau. He also provided a stretch limousine and a driver at his expense, he said, and invited the family to go to the airport with him so that he could accompany them. None of this was required, said Nadeau.

“Having known the Sheehan family for many years through St. Mary’s Catholic Church where Ms. Sheehan had previously been the youth director, it was my desire to provide care and dignity to Casey and the family. I did this in every respect.”

Two years later and there’s still no permanent headstone, because Cindy’s too busy cuddling up to the likes of Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, and Hugo Chavez, though she still has time to pose for pictures on Casey’s grave site.

The good news for the rest of the Sheehan family is that it now appears that a responsible adult is now in charge of getting the headstone.

Sheehan also said that Casey’s grave site was now being handled by her soon-to-be ex-husband Patrick.
