Casey Anthony Case, Caylee Anthony Memorial: An Editorial for your consideration


The Memorial Service for Caylee Marie Anthony is scheduled for Tuesday February 10 at 10am at the First Baptist Church, Orlando. I am very much in favor of a public memorial for our “peanut” as some of us refer to her and very much against the current plans for it.


There are thousands of people across the US and outside our borders that fell in love with this child at the first sight of her beaming, trusting smile. As we watched the sickening saga unfold with thinly veiled contempt, we never miss a Nancy Grace or Geraldo. We RSS’d every forum and outlet, and we post and blog our hearts out.  Caylee was found, she was murdered and a new and palpable collective cry for justice has us thirsting for even more “access” to news and those in the “know” of this case.

Problem is, while we are all spending our time consuming every lick of information we can get our hands on, the ratings and media whores are lining their pockets with your money. They are now in receipt of your compassion, time and cash.  Caylee is never seeing any of that.

Stop the Insanity

It is unfortunate, but the truth is the venue and format of this memorial is a hot-bed for trouble. It is a security risk to the enth degree.  Do you recall the Springer family outside the Anthony’s screaming and closing their kid in the car door? Would you pack a room full of people like that and sit in the middle?

The very possibility that once again this child’s memory will be soiled with the Murt and Lert’s of the world, or worse, is unbearable to me. Leonard Padilla is on record saying he is not invited and verbally attacking Cindy over it. So what is he doing in O R L A W N D O? I’ll make this simple, he’s going to do the same thing he did during the TES search, which is stand around and give interviews and take pictures with people that were saying “well, at least he’s looking for her…” I WAS THERE. Leonard, Rob, and Tracy did not search for anything but the nearest TV camera.   The Econ river stunt was PRE-PLANNED. The only information he had about Caylee being in the river was that: SHE WAS NOT IN THE RIVER. It was a contrived publicity stunt and when Greta Van Sustern called him out about it, he has not been back to her show. For the record, in the beginning, I was an advocate of Leonard’s as I believed like most that he was well-intentioned and legitimately looking for Caylee.  Let me count the holes in my Christmas card list as a result.  Don’t take my word for it, he takes everyone’s call; ask him how many pics he and Tracy have been shopping from inside the Anthony home we can expect to see?

Here’s my prediction.  He will be on camera giving commentary on Monday and Tuesday and will say something like “The memorial is a sham anyway because Caylee is still in a box at the funeral home  because her Mother won’t release her and the Anthony’s won’t bury her without  Casey because they  believe they will find the one-armed babysitter responsible for her death.

Inflaming people =Market Value= Cash.  Yep, all boils down to the permissive marketing strategy developed by Seth Godin that all of us in the Agency biz cut our teeth on.  I for one am opting out.


I have spent countless hours of analytics and investigative work, sharing much of it with you, the reader, on Caylee’s case for 3 reasons:

To find her. The thought of that baby out there discarded like some ill-fitting shoe that gave you calluses so you tossed them for a better fit haunted me. Never mind that the new shoes were stolen out of someone else’s closet. Metaphorically speaking of course. The closet in this scenario being the region of her mind where she stores her reality.

To expose anyone, any entity, any organization that profits or attempts to profit on the death of this baby.

To restore the legacy Caylee deserves.  This innocent child should be remembered for the ethereal cherub she was.  Anytime I ever hear a child say “Are you tired Poppa?” I will think of her sweet voice. She inspired thousands of people to act on her behalf in any way they could contribute their skills, energy, time, and in some cases money.  SHE MATTERS. We could not protect her in her life; I feel obligated to do it in her memory and am asking for your help.

On Tuesday I do not plan to watch once one millisecond of coverage of this memorial. I simply cannot be a witness to what I know ultimately has nothing to do with honoring this baby.  You all have been eulogizing her without agendas or selfishness for months with beautiful YouTube tributes, artwork, poems, etc.  SHARE THAT WITH SOMEONE.  Make a list of things you have wanted to do with your children that you have not had time for; and scratch one off that day.  Say something kind to somebody that needs to hear it.  Research a missing person’s case in your area and ask how you can volunteer. If I haven’t listed anything compelling enough for you and you insist, watch with a pad and pen. Make a list of all the sponsors during the commercials.  Find someone with access to redbook and research their agencies of record. Call them and ask them how much the increase in spot purchase increased and how much of the margin of profit increase they will be passing on to their customers in such an economy. If they don’t hang up on you, follow up with asking what they will be donating philanthropically this year.

Report back and tell me if you wished you went for door number one.

      Thanks Red. As usual you are right on target. Thank you for all the work in the dump looking for Natalee. I hope you are over all the illness from that.

    2. Gigi on February 9th, 2009 12:27 pm

      I, too, am so saddened by this sham of a memorial. Cindy is seeking to assuage her guilt and remind us again that Casey is innocent. It is pitiful how dishonored and disrespected this poor little child has been treated. I grieve for the loss of her life and pray that Casey gets the death penalty. Cindy forfeited her right for any sympathy when she allowed Casey to take Caylee and hold her for 31 days without reporting the suspicious activity to the police. How she can live with herself is beyond my understanding. i have a granddaughter almost the same age as Caylee and I know I would be hysterical and insane if she went missing for one minute. The whole thing is heartbreaking.

    3. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 1:03 pm

      Mr Padilla is just seeking notoriety.. signing autographs and hanging around the nancy grace show.. he needs to go home and stay there..
      you dont see tim miller performing in this manner.. he has more class..
      george is faking mental illness to get something going to help casey.. they could care less about little caylee its turned into a money making side show…of which the likes I have never seen

      lee is hiding for fear of what that paternity will find him to be the daddy.. I dont believe the story that he was killed in a car accident. she has lied about everything why tell me should we believe this story.. its bogus …
      I seen the guest list and sure enough it didnt include cindys brother Rick they arent speaking because he sees her for what she is.. a drama queen .. control freak biggtime…

      josie baez wants change of venue well why I ask? does he not think that this memorial will be televised.. and in newspapers and gossip magazines all over this planet!!!

      he created the media attention he so sought and now he doesnt know what the hell to do…
      he isnt your igh profil attorney as he so wants to be known for hell no.. this all ceased to be about caylee when they began marketing her death.

      what a sick bunch of loosers….

      casey makes me sick … to see her in court all smiles like shes auditioning ofr a role.. she is a killer she killed her daughter… cindy worded the memorial to say that caylee was a missing child!!

      excuse me!!! she was murdered by her own mother … all those pictures of casey.. at parties and drinking … tell the truth about what her heart is like… COLD.. she and her lover attorney think she will go free.. by comparing her to the fugitive excuse me NOT!!!!

      RICK PLASEA knows what a sick bunch they are …. the memorial.. will not help his change of venue request… oh and people are going to be turned away geez … cindys eulogy was cold and very inpersonal!!!! not what you expect from a grieving family..
      no one in that family have showed any signs of grief.. they want us to believe casey is grieving behind closed doors!! THAT THEY ARE GRIEVING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS … NOT NOT NOT…

      I always try and be light and witty,but the fact is I fell in love with Caylee the first time I saw that little face,and even though in my heart I knew she was gone,I still prayed that I would be wrong,and that she would one day be found as a happy young woman,she was sunshine,and I dont know how or why that family chose or could let her slip away,and no I wont be watching the “Cindy” show tommorow.

    7. Gigi on February 9th, 2009 1:41 pm

      that is the essence of this: how could they let her slip away? how could they ignore the warning signals from casey, all the lying and stealing and conniving, refusing to name a father for poor caylee. it breaks my heart. i have shed many tears for this tiny toddler. i doubt casey has shed any.

    8. O4Bull on February 9th, 2009 1:55 pm

      Great Post Red!

      Casey watched the movie “Untraceable” on the night she says Caylee “disappeared”. The whole premise of the movie relates to your post. The killer set up a website in which he told people that the more viewers who turned in, the quicker his victim would die. NOTHING stopped people from watching, even when they knew the victim was being tortured as they watched it live and would ultimately pay with his life.

      I will stand with you, and I will not watch. I care about you Caylee Marie Anthony, and I will honor you this way.

    9. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 2:05 pm

      now tell me does josie baez think that the fact that casey anthony has shown no remorse and has not requested to view the memorial . will help his client any?? GEEZ

    10. Gigi on February 9th, 2009 2:23 pm

      i think jose baez is so enthralled with casey that he can’t make rational decisions. i guess jose will learn the value of experience as this fiasco goes on.

    11. Ellie on February 9th, 2009 2:34 pm

      Thank your for finally laying it on the line, it’s about time someone called Lenny out and in a harsh way. A way that he will remember and not shrug off, Lenny and Murt you are both media greedy whores who have made a living the past 7 months on the back of a sweet 2 yr old baby. Ask yourself this one question, are you proud of how you’ve handled yourself? If so, you need to seriously re-examine your life and take a step back.

    12. tina on February 9th, 2009 2:44 pm

      i will join the rest of you and not watch the memorial service tomorrow, why are they not burying precious little caylee. the whole family has done that child so much injustice, the family was so protective of lying casey they did not try to protect little caylee, the one that should have been protected. i feel so sorry for this precious little angel, she has been done so very wrong by the ones that should have protected her the most.

    13. Carpe on February 9th, 2009 2:57 pm


      I do not think there will be a turn out of
      5 thousand tomorrow. I think it will be much
      lower than anyone could imagine.

      I think most people can see right through
      this psychological lab project gone wrong
      called the ANTO-KNEE FAMILY. They can see
      through all of the lies.

      Sure, the ANTO-KNEES will get some people. Some folks that believe anything… facts be damned. After all… there are morons that answer simple poll questions like DID YOU WAKE UP TODAY? with “NOT SURE” These people need to be forced to
      where specially crafted helmets with chin straps.
      They should only be allowed to drive bumper cars
      to the event, and they need to constantly reminded
      to keep their hands off their neighbors.

      A person with a brain that works will remember
      that the only reason CAYLEE MARIE was a missing
      child… only because her mother researched online
      HOW TO GET RID OF A CHILD and then set forth with
      a plan to do JUST THAT. I know the Anthony family
      is going through hell… but it is one they built
      for themselves, and I don’t have a problem with it.


    14. Deanie Molloy on February 9th, 2009 4:07 pm

      Enough! I read the same personal tripe every day trying to

      trying to find the latest news on this case. Same, same, same said over & over & over again. If you don’t want to attend or watch, don’t. If you do, do. You have the right to your opinion. But don’t put everybody down! Anyone can find the negative in most situations as I am doing in being a little sick of everyone saying the same things over & over thinking their thoughts are unique!!!

    15. Lori on February 9th, 2009 4:24 pm

      I totally agree with this post. This whole memorial is yet again another mockery of this beautiful child’s murder. It’s ridiculous really. I’ve been captivated by this for the same reasons you state. This child needs advocates because her family behaves the way it does. Thanks for a very intelligent post.

    16. Sharon Chicago on February 9th, 2009 4:25 pm

      Tina #12 … I don’t get your statement, how could the Anthony family have protected Caylee?
      In what way. Their daughter Casey murdered her they could not see that would happen. Yes they stood behind Casey trying not to believe or accept the horrid facts facing them…but they
      loved Caylee that is evident.

    17. Sarah on February 9th, 2009 5:34 pm

      Misskatie~ I find it very sad that you judge George Anthony as ‘faking ‘mental illness’ It is an insult to even say that about him as no one knows what his condition is. He is obviously a broken man who is heartbroken and its very cruel to mock him as mentally ill and imply he is trying to cover for Casey..this family is frustrating to many people but I can assure you that unless you are walking in that man’s have no right to be so cold and judgemental. Its easy to put someone down when you are not experiencing their anguish and pain isnt it?!

    18. Carpe on February 9th, 2009 5:42 pm

      The truth hurts sometimes. Sometimes it is positive, other times negative. …but you
      deal with it… unless you’re the Anthonys…

      …and then you do anything but face it head on…
      …oh, and if you can… run out and retain as
      many scumbag lawyers as you can find to
      try and spin it… and if possible, make some
      quick cash off of the victim’s videos and pictures.

    19. Susan on February 9th, 2009 5:43 pm

      Great job, SM! I, myself, will not watch the disgusting, disrepectful, pathetic spectacle tomorrow :-(

      Instead, I will remember Caylee Marie Anthony with a moment of silence.

      Caylee, we love you, precious angel :-) RIP little one.

    20. Susan on February 9th, 2009 5:51 pm

      Ahhh, Jesus, Sarah! George Anthony, along with the rest of the Anthony family, has NOT done the right thing by Caylee!! Their only concern has been Casey, the murdering, lying, no good for nothing sl*t!! No one, I repeat no one, absolutely no one should have any sympathy for George or the rest of that dysfuntionaly, insane family!!

    21. Sarah on February 9th, 2009 6:20 pm

      Well Susan you are entitled to your judgemental hateful opinion and it says alot about people who would jump on a broken man..maybe you will know that kind of pain one day..and you do not speak for everyone by the way..there are people who do feel compassion for does not mean one agrees with things he has or hasnt speaks little of humanity to be so hateful to someone when you have no idea what they are going through..Caylee is not your child or grandaughter..she is their if you claim to respect her then show some damn respect for her grandfather who loved her DEARLY..he is not her murderer! Get it straight!

    22. LilPuma on February 9th, 2009 6:21 pm

      I didn’t follow this case closely. I heard the news reports, but didn’t follow the message board discussions and articles. Friends sometimes kept me informed. But reading Red’s article and seeing the pic of this little angel, I can only say, How could anyone do this?

    23. MANTIS on February 9th, 2009 6:33 pm

      They that love beyond the world
      Cannot be separated by it.
      Death is but crossing the world,
      As friends do the seas;
      They live in one another still.

      For Caylee

    24. Susan on February 9th, 2009 6:41 pm

      Sarah -

      Considering the fact that Cindy, George, and Lee Anthony are all GUILTY AS HELL of conspiring against authorities, aiding and abetting a murderer, and perjurying themselves, let’s throw MURDER ONE in there as well!!

      I’m not being judgemental…I’m just calling it like I see it. George is a weak, hen pecked wuss who should have stood up to his “control freak” wife years ago. If he had shown Cindy (and their children) who wore the pants in the family, Caylee may be alive today! Broken man, my arse!

      I’m not speaking for EVERYONE, nor would I try to, but there’s a lot of folks out there who feel the same way.

    25. HOPE on February 9th, 2009 7:02 pm

      I think this is a wonderful artcle, as well. However, I respect anyone and everyone’s right to memorialize the death of their grand daughter and feel it is a family matter that, although it may be contaminated by all the public relations consultants and attorneys actions to make money for the Anthony’s, I would not interfere. Caylee was their grand daughter, not mine, and any pain that I may feel over her death is nothing compared to what they will be going through over the next several months and into the future when the silence, around their home, will scream out for remedy.

      As for Padilla, who cares whether he goes or not… although he has tried to inject every ounce of his energy into keeping the bucks rolling in for the Anthony’s through all the attention he’s provided for the case, I don’t think he could be considered a friend of either Caylee’s or the Anthony’s. We, often, question one’s right to privacy; and this is one occasion those rights should be held above any ill feelings we have over the Anthony’s or the ‘three-ring circus’ that has been created around them… for Caylee’s sake.

      Being concerned about a victim of crime, wanting justice for that victim and questioning the reasoning behind a heinous crime is a far-cry from loving someone. Fortunately, for us, we don’t have to deal with that loss on a day to day basis. Nor do we have to suffer the blow that losing a child or grand daughter can bring to a family… and I, for one, hope that they will take this time to mourn in whatever fashion they feel necessary. Above all, that is the ‘right’ thing to do.

      Justice for Caylee!

    26. brie. on February 9th, 2009 7:21 pm

      There is a lot of mental issues in that family but I don’t believe George was going to commit suicide. People that really want to commit suicide do not text their family and write a letter. No doubt he wanted to be alone and try to have some peace and quiet. Living with Cindy without the case has got to be a nightmare. George thought the case was going to trial because March had been mentioned numerous times. He doesn’t want to testify against Casey and with hospitalization in a mental ward he maybe wouldn’t have too.

    27. brie. on February 9th, 2009 7:50 pm

      The Anthony’s are trying to play on the sympathy of the people of Orlando and others. As long as they are going to support Casey the murderer I doubt if that is going to happen. It’s just a PR move so they can say they gave the people of Orlando closure.

    28. Buzz on February 9th, 2009 8:02 pm

      When the A’s first announced a public memorial, back in December, I thought it was a very kind gesture on the family’s part. What has transpired leading up to this service has just made me sick.

      It should be about Caylee. Poor little Caylee has been lost in this. Tomorrow people will disect every word said at the memorial. LP will be strutting like a peacock about his private memorial where she was dumped. Tomorrow the nut cases protesting the memorial will get prime time coverage.

      I wish, and hope, that tomorrow could just be about Caylee. I’ve been willing to set aside my negative feelings about the A’s to honor Caylee for a couple of hours. It’s become obvious that Caylee will be an after thought tomorrow.

      I believe you are right, tomorrow will not be just for Caylee. I will honor Caylee tomorrow in one of the ways suggested.

    29. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:07 pm

      it seems to me that nancy grace is being to lenient with the anthonys .. she said that cindy wrote a beautiful eulogy. I am sorry I think she is being to double minded so as not to get sued.. she I am sure isnt feeling what she is saying.. she is just trying not to get sued again.. leonard padilla is a big joke .. having his own memorial for casey he thinks he will deter trouble makers from the memorial .. I didnt buy it … she is all into child find.. like if caylee was kidnapped .. not.. she was murdered by her mother whom isnt caring to watch the memorial.. shes going on with her day by ordering all her snacks bottled water and make up.. what a buncha sickos

    30. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:08 pm

      I dont think the eulogy was person it seemed so cold and inpersonal

    31. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:08 pm

      oops it wasnt personal

    32. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:10 pm


      furthermore the father probably isnt dead.. shes lied about everything else
      why should we believe her now?

    33. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:15 pm


      this is a blog where people write their concerns and thoughts.. how dare you come here to critique us for caring .. you dont need to be here.. so if it upsets you go away.. this is for those that loved caylee and yes we will continue to say what we please dont try to make people feel bad for saying whats on their heart and mind..

    34. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:19 pm

      well sarah
      this is a blog where we come and tell how we feel.. we cant all agree.. you have your right to believe in georges mindset.. just dont force it on me.. who are you to say what he is doing is real… your not a mental health professional.. I have a right to my opinion as well as others.. if you dont like it go also. u wont be missed

    35. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:21 pm

      thanks susan that whole family is dispicable and disgusting.. they failed caylee …….. and thats who I care about her rights to Justice again susan thanks

    36. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:22 pm

      I couldnt of said it better myself high 5′

    37. Carpe on February 9th, 2009 9:23 pm

      What tires me out is that bozo-headed drama queen HLN Anchor Jane Valez-Mullet-Head claiming that George and Cindy are VICTIMS…

      Here Ye , Here Ye old girl… the true
      victim in the case was Caylee. A defenseless
      sweetheart 3 yr old who was double-bagged,
      duct-taped and tossed in a swamp to rot!
      So much for Case-Face’s “I wanna casket and
      a grave to visit” plea. That Baez statement
      today was pretty laughable.

      George & Cindy obstructed the investigation
      a number of times. They were way less than
      helpful… at times even destructive!

      They are such sad, dysfunctional apples that
      I doubt they will get T-BONED for it by the
      State of Florida. The only sympathy I can muster
      up for them is the “Stop Poking Yourself In The Eye If You Don’t Friggin’ Like It” kind.

    38. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:24 pm

      I am one of those that feels the way you do 100%

    39. misskatie on February 9th, 2009 9:47 pm

      I meant to say susan

    40. HOPE on February 10th, 2009 2:59 am

      Thanks, Carpe… you’re right.


      As much as I wanted to go to the memorial, at one time… I won’t be there, nor will I be watching it. I think I’ll write a letter to Caylee, instead.

      I’m not perfect and I’m not made of stone. There has to be balance in my life or I get overwhelmed. My mom used to tell me to just cry and I’d feel better. It worked for me as a child. But, as an adult, I’ve found that there are some things that make you cry and, it doesn’t matter how much you cry, it couldn’t, possibly, be enough.

      God, please, watch over Orlando.

    41. ANewGirl on February 10th, 2009 3:41 am


      I’m with you. Also, another good idea below….as Carpe says:



      I know for a fact—that when donating to Equusearch or “JusticeforNatalee” in the past—the money goes to where it is supposed to & supports those in need to assist in finding Lost & Exploited Children/Adults.

      To all of us whose heart has been captured…I maintain that this is where our voice can be heard the loudest and make the most difference.

      *****RIP Babygirl Caylee****


    42. ANewGirl on February 10th, 2009 3:59 am

      As far as what Casey Anthony quote “wants”…..

      should we tell her what Joe Q. Public wants????

      Her life in Prison behind bars or better yet, the Death Penalty.

      We are so OVER YOU CASEY ANTHONY, your Scumbag Lawyer, the 3 Ring Circus of losers that are looking to profit off the death of Caylee—and most of the American public should learn to get over the entire ANTHONY Family.

      And to that Poster who handed out the lecture on feeling sympathy for George Anthony faking his suicide—-GET A GRIP, will you?

      What don’t you understand? No normal family acts like this. It’s as obvious as the nose on your face. No one is saying these Grandparents didn’t love Caylee…..we’re saying FROM THE BEGINNING—it should have been all about their Grandaughter or even their OWN DAUGHTER—who ends up being a Murderer. These people want sympathy now after all these years of being in denial (From June of 2008 until present in particula)the last few?????? Cindy & George Anthony should have done the “right thing” BEFORE—YES, BEFORE their Daughter MURDERED their Grandaughter!!! While they are not responsible for the act taking place- they ARE responsible for the CRAPPY JOB THEY DID RAISING THEIR DAUGHTER. Everyone makes mistakes, but they didn’t stand up and STAND IN when they should have…Why? IMO, it’s because Cindy & George were/are too selfish & it’s all about them.
      Also, Cindy Anthony should not have forced Casey to keep Caylee and raise her at home. Why couldn’t this child have been adopted by a loving family? Cindy insisted on Casey keeping that Baby so CINDY could care for her—so CINDY could have this child at home in a lame attempt to rescue her failing marriage or bring some faux happiness back to that home?????? Sick, that is just sick. Caylee Marie was so innocent in all of this—-yet she HAD NO CHOICE, SHE HAD NO VOICE & she deserved so much better.

      Who CARES about the Anthony’s is right!!? Who gives a Rat’s Ass about Casey or her lame public Statements? Who cares about her inept, disgraceful fame seeking, money-grubbing Attorney ???

      We stand by that BabyGirl.

      ***** Justice for Caylee ******

      Sara Thanks so much I totally agree and dont worry Susan is alone in saying you wont be missed. I feel for George and have so much since day one. it is easy to sit back and judge, it takes compassion to realize only he knows the cross he bears. I know I am not envious of their plight. And I do know they arent perfect parents or people, but neither are we. THanks so much Sarah for reminding us of what we should all already know. And may peace come one day to their family.

      Casey traded her baby in for a few laughs and a few beers, how heartbreaking. I honestly dont understand how she is not heartbroken herself. Even if she IS sick and only thinking of herself, wouldnt she be sad that the joy of her daughter is gone from her life? And to ponder her killing for months, ouch how on Earth could she live with herself? Tony sais she woke in cold sweat a few times. I wonder what she is doing now… Boy that would be the absolute worst horror, to sleep every night knowing you killed your precious little *cherub*, as this article referred to her as. I know I for one will never forget Caylee. And shame on anybody who plans to create more heartbreak for the Anthonys tomorrow. They already have enough to last them a lifetime.

      PS Being a thousand miles away, I wonder how Caseys friends and boyfriends are moving on with their lives. It must be tough. I wonder if they are recognized everywhere they go? Boy this woman really did a number on Orlando. And the entire nation for that matter.

      misskatie – You are welcome :-) You’ve defended me in the past, so I felt I should do the same.

      I agree with you, this is all about Caylee, and she is the only reason we are here.

      both george and cindy anthony have aged decades in months. i for one cannot imagine myself in their situation. they have obviously been covering for and rescuing casey her entire life. how to stop what has become automatic?

    48. Gigi on February 10th, 2009 11:48 am

      I don’t believe that Cindy and George can rescue Casey from this “little mess”. Their daughter is a murderer. She took the most prescious from them. She does not suffer remorse or guilt. We all are angry that the Anthony’s don’t get it. I pray that justice will be done for Caylee.

    49. misskatie on February 10th, 2009 12:23 pm

      thanks I always try to get peoples backs if someone is viciously attacking them.. were here to write how we feel our love for this innocent child….. but to judge someone for their beliefs according to what we see to be ovious is wrong..we have done nothing but hear how this is defending this killer… after … it has beeen porven over and over again by her actions.. that she isnt innocent.. her behaviour out partying is unacceptable… the grandparents are just as responsible for covering up things like cindy washing away evidence.. thanks again susan us regulars fight for justice.. from time to time someone comes here to fight and argue and try to force us to think their way. not…me no way..this is about caylee and the dysfunctional family that has turned this into a market. along with josie baez… I feel strongly about this case,,,

    50. misskatie on February 10th, 2009 12:26 pm

      oops how her parents are defending a killer… she deserves old sparky… it fires me up to see this and to see little children abused and tortured in such a manner.. they are defenseless we have to be caylees voice.. we dont come here because we have nothing better to do.. we all have lives

      the biggest part is we have heart that is why we make time to come here and talk about our feeling.. casey didnt want to even watch the memorial all she wants is to sit back order her commisary and forget what she did.. I got new s she will never be able to..
      I think the memorial could of written with more heart what do you think???


    51. Susan on February 10th, 2009 5:13 pm

      misskatie -

      I have no opinion, yet, in reference to the memorial. I did not watch it or any of the news coverage or read Cindy’s eulogy.

      Of course we all know, there would have been a need for a memorial if the Anthony family had taken care of Caylee like they should have to begin with. It’s truly a sad, dark day…

    52. misskatie on February 10th, 2009 5:22 pm

      I watched clips of it but it kept cutting out.. so I only have little info.. I just know what I did see was disturbing.. At the forum theres more info into this.. also REMEMBER
      it was me that said that your friend wont be missed.. it wasnt susan ..YOHOOOOOOOOOO I am the ONE!!!

      Tonite on Nancy Grace Show, Leonard Padilla did confirm about Lee talking in codes about the CMA. Lee was so emotional, how he was incomplete, a broken man, loves CMA, had to be strong for CMA, and stated that he will keep his promise to her. Sounded like a heartbroken husband…well, Leonard Padilla clearly stated that the CMA Lee was speaking about referred to Casey Marie Anthony not Caylee Marie Anthony! The information was clarified to him by Lee Anthony last year when Padilla was at the house and Padilla happened to see the initials CMA on Lee’s notebook. He asked Lee what those initials meant and Lee told him that it stood for Casey Marie Anthony!

      The eulogies made by Cindy and Lee struck me as being very deceitful, impersonal and insincere..was full of crap. Lee’s speech sounded very suspicious and Cindy comparing Caylee with Casey as being beautiful and compassionate just a bunch of hogwash and wishful thinking! Caylee was the beautiful innocent child, filled with love, and compassion for her great grandpa and grandpa George and grandma Cindy. Casey was the evil one who had no compassion for anyone except herself! She didn’t even have enough nerve to pay her respects to her dead child. Instead, she spent her precious precious time with that Baez!

      yes my dear I felt the same this is what you said and I agree .. it bears repeating ..

      misskatie -

      I watched the memorial on the links SM provided and was touched by the pastors messages. I sat and cried for almost 2 hours watching it, especially when the home videos of sweet, innocent, beautiful Caylee were shown :-(

      I’m outraged and disgusted with the Anthony family’s freak show performance! Of course, Cindy thought she was the STAR…not!

    56. misskatie on February 10th, 2009 10:42 pm

      susan I share your feelings on this .. it was total sickness puke.. of a asking the public to write to casey…they took what was meant to be for caylee and made it for a plea to help casey.. this family has deep seeded problems.. I watch their actions in total disgust as does most of the monkeys here.I wanted to puke when lee began talking to CMA
      we know that it was not caylee he was referring to that was so weird caylee was not the CMA he was talking about .. their behaviours today were totaly bazaar and inappropiate the gum chewing was annoying.. I wanted to reach thru my monitor to slap it out of their mouth.. choke .. can you see my visual lol … wished I could.. casey will not walk she has done made herself look stupid by her actions along with her families actions and baez’s stupid behaviour.. so I heard that the ashes were ordered to return to baez per casey.. did they take them away from the anthonys.. thats bazaar… and whats baez doing with them putting them in a safe deposit box or caring them in his brief case geez it gets weirder!!

    57. misskatie on February 10th, 2009 10:43 pm

      I meant that her family has the ashes and .. per request had to be returned .. they were picked up by baez

    58. Blink34 on February 11th, 2009 12:28 pm

      Sttopping in to say I kept my commitment as I requested in the piece. I have not,and will not watch a lick of this sham..

      TO: God. com

      Dear Lord,

      Every single evening
      As I’m lying here in bed,
      This tiny little Prayer
      Keeps running through my head:

      God bless all my family
      Wherever they may be,
      Keep them warm
      and safe from harm
      For they’re so close to me.

      And God, there is one more thing
      I wish that You could do;
      Hope You don’t mind me asking,
      Please bless my computer too.

      Now I know that it’s unusual
      To Bless a motherboard,
      But listen just a second
      While I explain it to you, Lord.

      You see, that little metal box
      Holds more than odds and ends;
      Inside those small compartments
      Rest so many of my friends.

      I know so much about them
      By the kindness that they give,
      And this little scrap of metal
      Takes me in to where they live.

      By faith is how I know them
      Much the same as You.

      We share in what life brings us
      And from that our friendships grew.

      Please take an extra minute
      From Your duties up above,
      To bless those here at scared monkeys !!!That’s filled with so much love.

      Wherever else this prayer may reach
      To each and every friend,
