As much as I find it lackluster to see people supporting the phelps hateful ideas and self promoting stupidity, I wonder why street justice has not set them free from their mortal coil yet. I will pray to the skies tonight that people do what needs to be done and in a very creative manner.

They can be handled in a creative manner. Please take a moment to watch this clip. A wonderful show of support last year in Nashville for a fallen Marine, Sgt Kevin Balduf. Only three WBC goons showed up and after about 10 minutes they gave it up and went home. This was filmed in front of the same church where they protested my nephew's funeral 2006. Don't mess with Nashville....we're proud of our heroes!!

Is this the marine that got blown to bits in someone else's desert, on the other side of the world, dying to keep gas under $5 a gallon because Americans are so fat and lazy they would rather kill than pay?

Or is this the marine who came back bitter when he saw the price at the pump, and killed his wife and his children in a DOD drug induced haze, and then gassed himself to death in the chevy in the garage?

I'm gonna go with the suicidal scenario. More American soldiers kill themselves every day, than ever die in battle. It's a CURSE from God ya know. The DOD say it's epidemic.

DENVER - An examination of how two men's bodies were mistaken for each other at a hospice facility points to the confusion that can occur when Colorado funeral homes outsource some or all of the work they do.

Robert Mitchell of Denver and Perry Heath of Aurora died at The Denver Hospice at Lowry on Nov. 10.

Interviews by the 9Wants to Know investigators with family members, hospice staff, funeral service providers and industry experts reveal a series of mistakes made in identifying the men. Ultimately, Mitchell was cremated and buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery under Heath's name. He has since been disinterred.

Mitchell's family hired Taylor Funeral and Cremation Services of Aurora to handle his viewing and funeral. Heath's family arranged for a cremation through 5280 Cremation and Funeral Services of Aurora.

But Taylor doesn't have a mortuary and 5280 Cremation, despite its name, does not perform cremations. Both businesses outsourced the work to third-party providers.

Taylor dispatched Metropolitan Mortuary Services, a third-party transport company, to pick up Mitchell's body and take it to Buckley Mortuary, for an outsourced embalming. Taylor staff didn't see the body until a few days before the viewing and funeral when it was clear, if for no other reason than racial difference between Mitchell, who is black, and Heath, who is white, that the wrong body had been picked up from The Denver Hospice.

The same day Metropolitan incorrectly took Heath's body from The Denver Hospice, 5280's transportation contractor, SI Funeral Services, mistakenly removed Mitchell's body from the same facility.

SI staff brought Mitchell's body to their facility in Commerce City where, believing he was Heath, he was cremated.

Both SI and Metropolitan blamed The Denver Hospice for the mix-up, saying they were directed to the bodies they removed and they assumed staff knew who was who.

"You can't assume," Martha Thayer, chair of the Mortuary Science Program at Arapahoe Community College, said. "There is no room for assumptions in funeral service. No room."

Thayer says the ultimate responsibility to catch the mistake lies with the crematory, SI Funeral Services, which admits it went off the hospice paperwork alone.

"A series of errors certainly could have led up to it but it should have been caught before that button was pushed," Thayer said.

She sees a greater issue with a lack of accountability when funeral services are outsourced.

"The problem with this case in particular is that there were third party people all over it," Thayer said. "The funeral homes that work with third party providers really need to look at that and make sure they are aligned with people that they have a relationship with, that this isn't going to happen."

Newcomer Funeral Homes & Crematory, which has several locations in Colorado, uses a third party contractor for cremations. But, area manager David Campanella says, stringent identification protocols prevent misidentification.

"Just a name on a piece of paper does not mean anything. We need to have a 100 percent guarantee that we know who this person is," David Campanella said.

The Denver Hospice says it has taken steps to prevent another identification error.

The Denver Hospice will now require nurses, not other staff members, to accompany transport contractors to patients' rooms and the nurse will check each patient's ID wristband before signing paperwork allowing the body to be removed.

"We're sorry that this happened and we've put in new processes, training procedures and oversight to make sure nothing like this happens again. And we ask people to trust that we are taking very good care of their loved ones," Janelle McCallum, with The Denver Hospice, said. "The care and concern that we show when the person is in our care, and the precision that we use when they're there, has to also be shown as they're leaving."

Thomas A. Parmalee with the Kates-Boyles Publications reported yesterday that Newcomer Funeral Home is occupying a building that was once owned by Henry Vinson. Parmalee reported Vinson leased the building to mostly Black funeral homes. Parmalee reported Henry Vinson was involved in the White House Sex Scandal in the early 1990's and then went on to purchase funeral homes. Thomas Parmalee did not have any information on the record from Newcomer Funeral Home or Warren J.(Ren) Newcomer. On the Newcomer website, www.NewcomerFamily.com , Warren J.(Ren) Newcomer and his wife Theresa Newcomer state "Families save hundreds and even thousands of dollars at Newcomer". Newcomer Funeral Homes operate in Dayton, Ohio; Louisville, KY; Topeka, KS; New Richmond, IN; Beaver Creek, OH; Cincinnati, OH; Florida; Colorado; Columbus, OH; Toledo, OH;. Thomas A. Parmalee did not state the motivation of the article and the article reported no new events. Thomas Parmalee did not report that Henry Vinson was employed by or had ownership in the funeral home. Newcomer Funeral Home and their association with Henry Vinson has some questioning Vinson's suitability to be in funeral business according to Thomas A. Parmalee. Thomas A. Parmalee also reported Henry Vinson was a minister but he did not report Vinson had officiated at any funeral services at Newcomer or other funeral homes. Thomas A. Parmalee reported there are possible investigations of funeral homes in Ohio by the Ohio Funeral Board. Why are these low cost funeral homes mentioned in the white house sexual scandal and how does this impact the community. people have a right to know if their funeral director is a crook of it he is a convicted child molester or worst. people have a right to know who they are dealing with.

Laugh and scoff at the mighty Westboro Baptist Church, the most glorious and courageous movement in the world today, if you will, but you can never stop WBC for it is an unstoppable force for morality and good which no amount of donkey bonkers can hope to stop. May the glorious Reverend Fred Phelps continue to lead the way in shining a light on the forces of sods in this putrid land of sickos.
