George, Cindy, and Lee Anthony’s eulogies at Caylee Anthony’s memorial

February 10, 2009

anthonys-at-memorialToday’s memorial for Caylee Anthony was a beautiful and fitting tribute to a precious little girl who’s life was taken much too soon.  The protesters did not show up, the crowd was dignified and respectful and the cameras didn’t pan back and forth between the Anthony’s memorial and whatever makeshift memorial Leonard Padilla cooked up–at least not on HLN.  (did Leonard even go through with it?)

The Anthony’s personal tributes were moving and heartfelt.  My heart went out to them.  Cindy did an outstanding job with the flowers, the music, the choice of  ministers,  and in conveying what Caylee had meant to her–as well as what Lee and Casey mean to her. The beautiful video tribute to Caylee was really moving and captured Caylee’s personality.( The video tribute is linked below.)  George broke my heart, his pain was so obvious, but he managed to do  a really wonderful job of capturing little Caylee’s memory.

Lee’s tribute brought the only odd moment in the service when he kept referring to “C.M.A”. He spoke of C.M.A. in the present tense, and the initials, (both Caylee’s and Casey’s) made one wonder whether he was speaking of Caylee–or Casey?  Was he speaking in code to Casey?   And, what was the promise he made to C.M.A.?  Not that it’s any of our business because it’s not–but why bring it up on national television?

It appears that Casey did not watch or listen to the service although it’s entirely posible she could have watched on Jose’s computer–She spent her time during the memorial in a meeting with him.  IMO, she would have done herself well to have watched the service.  Her lack of interest in her daughter’s memorial may come back to bite her in the butt in a court of law.  She also might have taken comfort in her family’s words for her daughter and also in their words of love and support for her.

    I thought the memorial was outstanding. You are right the only odd moment was when Lee kept referring to CMA. I noticed he read his eulogy from a lap top. Is it possible that maybe Casey was with him at that moment? Most newer lap tops have built in web cams. Is it possible that she was there at that moment? If Jose had his lap top with him. Couldn’t they do that? I don’t know, but this I do know, Cindy out did herself along with everyone else and I was glad to see her family was there.

    Well ladies, I have to disagree somewhat. Lee’s moment was odd. I agree with that; actually a little creepy. But for a short moment, I wondered if it was about Caylee, or a plea of sympathy for Caylee’s murderer. I don’t mean to offend anyone, but I felt it was inappropriate to even mention Casey’s name, let alone ask for letters of support and prayers for her. Although I have prayed for Casey, that she may tell the truth, and I ask God to have mercy on her soul. That is about all I can give.

    The service was lovely. Cindy did a great job at putting it together, and I am also glad her family was there. I forget to mention that, as well as my heart is heavy for their loss. She did go too soon. We will never know what might have been, and that is a sad thought. I know they all loved her very much. 😦

    I also wondered if Lee wasn’t speaking to Casey. Niecey we think too much alike on many things. I would almost bet he was, as most laptops now come with webcams built in to them. I would bet my last dollar he was, and it is probably why Bozo made the point of being with her.

    I surely do not want to even imagine being in their shoes, ever. I just cannot imagine being able to ignore so much evidence and lack of concern. I just do not know where they get the ability to do this. Maybe they are bigger people than I, because I do not think I would speak of my daughter, or have any other comments, until after the trial. I just wouldn’t. I believe I would have a much harder time at finding forgiveness.

    wow, niecey and friendlymom–you two have quite the sleuthing minds! I remember thinking it was strange that he had his computer, strange what he was saying, and strange what Cindy said as if she were talking to Casey. It is very possible to connect via webcam on your computers and after thinking about it, everything makes a lot more sense if that’s what they were doing.

    maria– I pray for all of them as well.

    I only heard a brief comment about LP’s event, so as I hoped, there must not have been any cameras or press. I am glad, because his choosing to do this is distasteful to say the least. People need to stop even speaking to him. They should remove him from NG as well. He has wore himself out, and out stayed his welcome.

    Yes, if she watched, surely she could see what a beautiful memorial it was and that her mother did right by Caylee with the tribute. She could see as well what it has done to her family. But, I somehow doubt it changed her heart.

    I do pray for them all. I have all along. I pray that the truth come forward, and that God help them in accepting it when it comes. I also pray that God embrace them and lead them to a place of peace. As for Casey, I will just let God decide what to do with her. But I do feel he was talking with her. Why else would he have his laptop?

    You know, I think Cindy probably did the right thing in banning him from the service. Even if he had good intentions, which in his mind he probably did, just his presence would lend a circus atmosphere.

    If he had a written statement, why would he not print it out. Computers can fail, or service can be disrupted. I don’t believe he was reading a statement. He was speaking to her. It makes sense. Bozo being there for Casey during this memorial, and her not requesting to watch it. She knew she would get to watch it.

    It just amazes me how he seems to have new things to add each week. It seems every time he is on NG he wants to share something else that happened in that house. He is just trying to keep himself at the water cooler. He has nothing constructive to offer, so remove him.

    The only thing that was nice about this memorial was the few times they actually focused on Caylee and ONLY Caylee (which was not many times) I am totally disgusted with Lee and his CMA CMA CMA. I mean give me a break does he think we are all just a bunch of idiots! It was directed it to Crazy Casey. Did anyone else notice that he was only wearing the small button that represents Crazy Casey and didn’t wear the one with Caylee’s picture on it. (Everyone else was wearing it) I think they should have taken him straight from the memorial to the jail cell. I thought it was weird how Cindy Anthony said she had three children. Just tooooo weird. I can’t wait for this trial to begin, enough of this bull**it from this crazy family. It is time for JUSTICE TO BE SERVED FOR PRECIOUS CAYLEE! Lee talked about truth well bring it on and speak truth for a change!

    I thought so too Niecey. I do think Casey should have listened to them, but not the praise for her. I did not care for Cindy thanking Casey for giving her the precious gift. How could she thank someone who gave her something so sentimental only to take it and smash it like it never meant a thing? I just do not understand how this family operates. They all give me the chills.

    Maybe Niecey. I can’t understand, because I am not living it, but some of it I know is wrong and unacceptable behavior. I am trying so hard not to be angry at them. I honestly am. I am a very forgiving person, too forgiving most of the time. But then there is the side of me that when pushed too far, I have a difficult time finding forgiveness. Pray for me too I suppose. I am trying though. I have had my moments when I really feel for them, and then other times I am so angry and confused.

    Did anyone notice what Cindy was wearing? It was a little similar to Casey’s attire at court. Many were wearing Caylee Marie Anthony Forever In Our Hearts rubber bracelets as well. I’m thinking Cindy may have sent that stuff to Jose’s office. She’s really trying to reach out to Casey with love.

    I have never thought they should not love their daughter still. My God, I don’t think I could ever stop loving one of my children, no matter what they done. The only thing I disagree with is their denial of the truth and refusal to accept responsibility in this tragedy. All else is means nothing to me.

    I just did not think the memorial was the place for them to talk of Casey. If a stranger had done this to Caylee, would they ask that we write letters to him and pray for him? No, they would not.

    I know they are hurting deeply. I know they are in the darkest hours of their lives. I also know they loved Caylee with all their hearts and will miss her deeply every day of their lives. I know they are missing Casey as well, and hurt for her. But denying the truth is wrong. I would not be defending my child like that. I may admit that they are sick, and should be locked away, and would love them still. I know I would never come out and pretend it never happened when the evidence is so powerful in their guilt.

    George’s recollections of Caylee was so sweet and heartfelt. It wasn’t even offensive when he said that he misses Casey – of course he does. He mentioned her in an appropriate way. Except for the part about everyone writing to her – that’s not gonna happen. But he deserved the standing ovation. He was very sincere.

    On the part of the stranger, there was a woman whose son was recently shot to death in a near by town and they hadn’t found the guy who did it yet, when she was interviewed by the media she said to the person who shot her son: “God Bless You. I can’t hate you, because I’m not that kind of person”. She is a Christian. I agree with some of the behaviors, but maybe now we should let them handle it with faith. Justice will come.

  31. February 10, 2009 4:51 pm

    It was a beautiful memorial. The songs and prayers and learning even more about Caylee, like her favorite color, her favorite food. I pray for George and Cindy. I hope God gives them strength.

    Oh, Lee……..
    Have you and sis been playin with the Fisher-Price “My First Super Sleuth Decoder Ring” again? Next they’ll just resort to Piglatin. Now I’m really wondering about Lee’s involvement with the Baez camp. He made his loyalties clear today; and I think he made sure Baez had Crazy watching on the laptop. And I think she made that statement yesterday (partially) to create the illusion she was AGAINST the cameras and therefore WOULDN’T be watching…God, they’re so transparent…they set it up for Lee to pledge allegiance to Crazy on live web feed…
    This case gives me high blood pressure…

    As I mentioned before, I guess I am not a big enough person, guess I need to work that one out with God in my own way. I have my reasons for how I feel, but I suppose it is my burden to carry. I have never revealed this, until now, but I was molested when I was 3 years old. He was a family friend, who my parents trusted completely. He and his wife (wonderful lady) babysat for me sometimes. His wife did not know, until after the fact. I was not penetrated, and I had the courage to tell my mother, even though I had been threatened. He was arrested, enough of that. I have hate in my heart for those who hurt children. My burden. If I offended anyone, my apologies. I suppose my tears are just as much for my inner child, as much as they are for every wounded child in the world.

    Friendly Mom, I’m really sorry that happened to you and I understand where you are coming from when it comes to people harming children. I wasn’t picking on you. With that said, I see them trying to take a path of forgiveness, faith, hope and love, and Casey still is there child. I really hope they stay on that kind of course and stay in Church, as they will make a difference in this world before all is said and done, because they chose to follow Christ and because they made the choices He would have them to make, in the face of great tragedy. I’ve never agreed with all of their behaviors, but I admire their unconditional love.

    I can live with that. I also have admitted I could not stop loving one of my own, no matter what. A parent cannot just stop loving a child. (well not a normal parent). I can also agree with them finding a way to forgive. Hate is a heavy load to carry, and in the end, it only hurts the person carrying it. I just do not agree to them defending her to the point of denial. That is the only point I have tried to make. That is an insult to Caylee. They can love her, forgive her, but still take responsibility in acknowledging what she has done. I am very passionate about standing for those that need a voice and sometimes I take it personal. I have much room in my heart to forgive most things, others I struggle with.

  46. February 10, 2009 7:18 pm

    well said friendlymom,

    I’m sorry you went through that kind of horrible pain, but I must say, the fact that you are able to talk about it makes you a woman of courage in my book.

    Your story shared here will help those who share your pain and fierce cry for justice for those that even now as adults went through that pain as children. Don’t apologize for being a woman of heart and feelings.

    Thank you. I know what bothers me the most about this whole thing. It is bad enough to be hurt by someone you don’t know, but to be hurt by someone you trust and love is devastating, especially to a child. Children are innocent and trusting by nature. I remember exactly how I felt at the moment it happened, and will probably never forget. There is the overwhelming feeling of fear and confusion and helplessness. When I think of little Caylee feeling this toward her own mother, it just makes me so sad and angry. I am sorry, but I cannot forgive that. God help me, I cannot.

    Lee is going to up Shit Creek after this. I have to wonder now, is he the father. What secret did he promise to Casey????? Lee cracked today, he can be cracked again by investigators. George was the first to crack, now Lee is cracking. Cindy and Casey will never crack! They were so similar to each other, this is why they butted horns like 2 Rams all the time. Both, total control freaks, only Casey has surpassed Cindy now with the sociopathic behaviour and taking Caylee away from her forever.

    You are all so wonderful. My story is just one of many. I kept it secret for many years, as I felt ashamed. I came to terms with it eventually, and opened myself to other victims (where I volunteered for several years) that I may help them, and in return, it helped me to heal. Many stories are much more horrific than mine, and many children did not survive; either at the hands of their abuser or at their own hands later in life. I feel fortuate that God has led me in a direction of healing as well as helping. I pray that every victim out there never stop listening to his word. Even in our darkest hours, we are never alone. We just have to trust in God, and listen for his guiding words.

    I have to say I STILL feel for the Anthony’s (cindy george and LEE!) Maybe they are in Denial still about casey, and let me say innocent untill proven guilty, no i do not support or believe casey but a part of me wants her to be telling to truth tho, i believe she is Not. But she is also A child of God and can be forgiven AND thats great if the Anthonys want to forgive their Daughter, my parents have uncond. Love for me too. A long time ago ( as a young teen 17-19 ) I had gotten 2 DWI’s and they always stood by me yes they were mad but they wanted to help me and they wanted to forgive and DID! That is why im where i am at today! 29 and no drinking since 19 yrs old, anyways my point is- unconditional love for your children ALL of them! the LEE thing w/ CMA How does everyone KNOW he was talking To Casey and not to/about Caylee! So what Padilla says Lee said CMA refured to casey -yeah- i realy believe him he’s not been very accurate and HAS stretched the truth Alot. but he’s search so much also. Yes Lee loves his sister and he LOVES CAYLEE and LOVED her very much I do believe. No one know’s the whole thing except Or Lord and the Truth will eventuallly come forth. I believe Lee was talking to/about CAYLEE w/ the CMA!!!!!

    These people have no class NONE.NADA..all that matters is KC..

    I pray for Caylee whenever I see her picture on TV which is often. I can not find it in my heart to pray for the Anthony family. I am sorry for their losses but I truely believe that they have brought much of this disaster on themselves. They have spent a lifetime making excuses for Casey and closing their eyes to her terrible behavior. And the memorial ceremony was more opportunity to cheer lead for Casey. Poor little Caylee was caught in the cross fire of her family and never had a chance. When I see the photos of Casey dancing and laughing only days after Caylee disappeared it is revolting. I hope that she never sees the light of day without bars again.

    I know there are some who took no objection to the lies coming out of Cindy’s mouth yesterday. I know some will say they weren’t lies but in my opinion they were. If those lies somehow were presented in court and helped Casey with a Not Guilty verdict, would it still be okay?

    No matter how you twist it turn it a lot of what Cindy said was not the truth…soooo she was lying…the announcement of the pregnancy was a real winner…there she is in the house of the Lord and her mother sitting AND SHE TELLS A BOLD..BLATANT LIE…is that really what one should expect from a Memorial?? Shouldn’t a memorial be some what sacred?? It was anything but that.

    Lee was a total embarrassment…that message was to KC. I of course can=not prove it but I have a gut feeling and wouldn’t be afraid to bet the ranch that it was KC. they have a very unusual brother/sister relationship to say the least

    I was pretty irritated by Cindy’s contrived “memory” of learning she was about to become a grandmother. In her (now deleted) MySpace post from July, she recalled a terrified, single, pregnant daughter coming to her for support. Now we are told Casey was, in fact, “radiant” and “excited” to share the news with her mother. I think I got a little whiplash when I heard her “thank” Casey for giving her the gift of a grandchild…does she not remember Crazy’s heartfelt (now also deleted) MySpace poem, in which she said:
    “That which is given can be taken away…” ?????????? Am I the only one who remembers that?

    And yes, Lee is uber-creepy. He looked like he was tongue-kissing his wrist…and he was talkin about his nutty sister-wife in jail, not his brutally murdered niece-daughter, for whom everybody else was there to mourn.

    You know, I don’t fault any of the family for being in shock, denial, for still wanting to love their daughter unconditionally, or even wanting to learn to forgive…but when they spit these blatant lies in my face, and tell me I oughta believe their BS over MY lying eyes and ears, then I’ve got some issues with them…as Judge Judy would say, don’t piss on me and tell me its raining! Grief doesn’t give you license to try and rewrite the truth. Yes, I feel terrible for their situation, and nobody should ever have to go through this; but my sympathy is not a free pass for them to spread more BS…
    Is it just me? Does anybody else sense this?

    You are right, Mand. To let bald-faced lies roll so easily off her tongue in church is really telling isn’t it?

    And yes, of course Lee was talking to Casey not Caylee. Who needs proof over something so obvious? It’s also obvious that George loved Caylee — do we need pro0f of that? No. Some things are clear and easy to see if we have a brain.

    No it’s not just you ostella. Nor is it just MAND, nor is it just me. There are many people who can see though this very clearly. It is one thing to feel badly for the family (which I do) but it doesn’t mean we need to buy into the lies.

    You know, even if they just came out and said, “We are in such deep grief that we can’t see straight…we can’t help but wanna love and support our daughter, but at the same time we want justice for our grandaughter. Please pray for our family to find the strength to get thru this. We are lost right now…” That would be entirely appropriate. I would never judge them for that. But to stand up there and preach more BS and insult EVERYONE’S intelligence, and then hide behind the guise of the grieving family, and lash out at ANYONE who has the gall to point out that they are in fact LIARS…I’m sorry, but it’s terribly manipulative…and I, for one, refuse to fall for it.

    The only normal part about the memorial was GA’s genuine grief for his deceased granddaughter. He wore his heart on his sleeve. He finally had the courage to be true to himself and not be told how to express his emotions by controlling family members. He said it was Caylee’s day and it should have been! BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Enter Cindy and Lee. How much more bizarre can these two gong show rejects become? And who wears club clothes to a child’s memorial? Hand cuff that bastich!

    CMA…CMA…CMA! UGH! ENOUGH! Casey is NOT dead! CAYLEE IS! Not once did her uncle use her name. Lee is just like his sister. That is what is so stinking frightening! He is just as psycho and dangerous as Casey. They understand each other. They have a bond. I do not believe their bond is incestual nor do I believe that Caylee is Lee’s daughter. I truly believe Caylee’s name was made up out of sentiment for an older brother she adored. If Lee was the father, it would have come out a long time ago. They are diabolical and delusional. They can weave some incredible stories if it means survival.

    My final thought…this whole memorial may have been a set up by the defense to make Casey look like a caring, loving and grieving mother. The letter Bozo read to the media days before the memorial didn’t seem like something Casey would write. She didn’t give a crap about her daughter during this whole tragedy so why would she care about how her daughter is memorialized? Casey dumped her daughter like trash, but she wants a head stone to visit? C’MON!!! I bet that letter was written by one of the three stooges who call themselves Todd Black. Also, Cindy and Lee took full advantage of the memorial to back Casey. Did anyone else not notice the laptop in front of Lee during his speech? Of course Casey was watching the service! Baez was in her cell during the service…and guess who brings a laptop with him?

    Bottom line…the memorial was not about Caylee. It was a stunt put on by Bozo himself. How sad. Caylee was murdered again! When will she get the respect she deserves from a so called family. Casey, Cindy and Lee…you know where to go without directions.

    My heart goes out to Caylee, George and all missing angels around the world. Now it’s time to move on and heal from this. Rest in peace angel face.

    Ostella….well said!

    I thought the same thing too. It would be so much easier to be sympathetic if they came across as grieving grandparents who were caught between agony for the loss of their grandchild and unconditional love for their daughter. When they said ‘if you were in our shoes’, I might have actually contemplated what it would be like.

    This is what has been so troubling. The inconsistencies, the lies, the cover ups have only made it worse AND they refuse to own up to it.

    Peace to you all xo

    I believe she IS GUILTY but I also feel for her family their Grand baby is dead and thier daughter is in jail forever. What is wrong with parents loving their children NO MATTER WHAT. Do any of you read the Bible about forgiveness? Unconditional LOVE for your children?

    Melanie,

    I feel sorry for the Anthonys, too, and understand they love their daughter–even if she murdered their granddaughter. I do not, however, believe they have the right to lie, mislead, or obstruct efforts to find the truth, and all 3 of them have done that blatantly in one form or another. That’s the difference for me personally.

    I see your point I just feel sad about the whole thing and angry by it caylee was a beautiful child I have 2 nieces and I am best friends w/ them both they are so special to me. I just can understand the Anthonys denial and wanting to believe Casey. I am a criminal defence senior peri-legal. So i guess I take on that frame of mind w/ cases if you know what I mean, and alot of people hate defence attny’s for that!! believe me. It would be hard to be on Caseys case, because there are so many lie’s and so much evedence, but what if it was an accident and what if she drug’d her to go party and the lil angel passed away does Casey deserve to die too? I for one am totaly against the death pen. might as well live your life in prison it is worse punishment, but once again casey can be forgiven by the Lord. he forgives ALL if we ask him and we truley mean it.

    Melanie,

    I agree with you, I can understand wanting to believe their daughter and not wanting to believe she could have had something to do with her death.

    You ask if Casey deserves to die if she “accidentally” killed her daughter. Did Caylee deserve to die because her mother nonchalantly drugged her so she could go party? (if that’s what really happened) Wouldn’t you be infuriated if you found out your sister or brother was drugging your neices?
    What a terrible thing to do to an innocent little child. The death penalty isn’t on the table, so it doesn’t look like Casey will die.

    I’m just not sure it was an accident at all. Let’s not forget the duct tape over her mouth.

    Fitzpatrick & Ostella- I agree with your comments, you are very perseptive to see through this “Oh, the poor Anthony’s are in denial” bullshit. No the poor Anthony’s have circled the wagons & have been in cover up mode since last July, after coming in contact with Casey’s car & realizing Caylee’s decomposing body had been sitting in the trunk for days.

    I just wrote all the ways I agree with you, but the friggin website messed up & it was erased, I’m not about to write the whole thing over. But thanks, you both took the words out my mouth anyway.

    new docs released today :
    Downing said Lee Anthony told her, “We all know Casey’s done bad things but you need to protect yourself. You need to…if they call you, you need to tell them the truth. You need to tell them anything you know because if you know something you need to tell them….Don’t protect Casey.”

    everyone still think Lee was talking to casey w/ the CMA? There is so much evedence on casey she will be found guilty, the Diary entry for one would be easy to get around becasue no one knows she could be talking about a boyfriend in her life or one of them! She could be talking about anything realy that happened it is like reading your horoscope it could mean anything and could be written about anything that happens in day to day life. hate me people i dont care. I guess im seeing this from a defence point of view thats all. I think she is bi-polar also, and looks like she had post part. depression.

    I agree, Gina. They nailed it.

    Melanie

    One of the attorneys–can’t remember whether it was Lee’s or the Anthonys’, stated that Lee was speaking of all three–Caylee, Casey, and Cindy (they all 3 have the same initials.)

    You are right, the diary entry could be about anything, but what mother could be writting about anything at all–let alone about how “happy she is” 5 days after her baby vanished? I sure couldn’t–could you?

    There is some question as to whether or not the diary entry was really written last June–that it could have been written years before. Hopefully that will be cleared up soon. I don’t know what reason LE would have had to include it in the discovery if it weren’t relevant.

    PS: Nobody hates you!! LOL

    Lee addressing Caylee by her initials was a tad unusual, but I see nothing wrong with it. I have relatives who go by their initials. I don’t know what the big deal is except for those who have to read more into everything than is actually there. Personally, I thought they only odd part was when Cindy said that she had three children. I thought she had two. Does she consider her grandchild her child?
