There is also a probate case regarding wardship; guardian of the person. One can be a guardian of a person and an estate. So, there is no GAL in a criminal case.
    DCF DOES have the authority tho

    I can respect that.

    Although we may never agree, I definitely understand & respect your point of view about it.

    How do you know what they will "never" do?

    I find that strange, because I question WHEN he was there with sonar equipment, this time or the last time. I was there Saturday and there were no boats with sonar that I saw.

    I guess this debacle really got to me today. I suddenly remembered the quote

    "It takes a village to raise a child".

    In this case, it seems it might take a village to honour a child.

    The same can be said for LP... he couldn't have given a call to the A's beforehand regarding a funeral service for their granddaughter?

    I believe that "rational" just isn't much of an option to the A's anymore, and how anyone can insist they act rationally under such a hateful, public onslaught and the despair of losing their only grandchild is beyond me.

    ...To avoid further scenes and violence, perhaps it would be best if everyone who felt the need for closure at this stage, quietly and privately tossed flowers into the water, or left soft toys, cards, etc., in what they consider an appropriate spot, as an expression of their love for Caylee.
    I totally agree with you that this would be far more appropriate at this time and under these circumstances. I can't help but notice that even here in this thread, in discussing things like prayer vigils and memorial services for little Caylee, the hatred and rage against the grandparents she loved has to be included.

    She never had a CHANCE to love anyone else. Her mom dragged her from b/f to b/f. This trainwreck of a family nefver deserved Caylee. They cared so much about her that they waiting for a MONTH before reporting her missing. That's not caring. They trusted an alcohol-drinking, irresponsible thief to provide for this child. George and Cindy KNEW what Casey was like and they ignored it - thereby allowing their grandchild to be put in danger. They failed Caylee as muchy as Casey did

    I think it is safe to say, that even if Caylee's remains are found and the family has their service, that NO ONE outside of immediate family will be allowed to attend. My feeling is that this is the only way any outsiders would be able to memorialize her anyway. So, why wait?

    I just watched the video of the clash today. I understand that the Anthony's are not easy to like. I see how they seem to be in a constant state of aggression and anger but what I really see is devastation. I believe that the Anthonys are so overwhelmed by loss that they can't face their grief. I think they have to be angry and combative in order to avoid that which they cannot face. They have truly lost everything. No aspect of their lives will ever the same. I am so sad when I see them. I'm not justifying any of their actions, but they certainly have earned my compassion.

    According to Cindy that is what Caylee is. CDF said she was at risk. Casey ABANDONED caylee when she left her on the landing of n unoccupied apartement.

    I think if Cindy doesn't get some serious help, she won't survive if they DO find Caylee. That woman is definitely imploding.

    Because it benefits them more if Caylee is "alive out there somewhere" than if she's dead.

    They all appear to have ulterior motives. Of course KC's motive is to keep the needle out of her arm and the Anthony's is the same, not to mention there is no money to be collected on a DEAD Caylee.

    It also seems to me that the Anthonys have already held very PUBLIC "vigils" for her, so I don't think they have a right to suddenly demand the public NOT gather in Caylee's name.

    I read the question and answered without knowing any details of what was planned. I voted yes to a memorial service but did have to think about it. Good question!!
    I think a huge vigil is more appropriate than a memorial service and in a perfect world, the family should always have final say. But...
    This isn't a perfect world though and Caylee had a far from perfect family. Because of that, she became known to all of us, and loved by us in tragic circumstances. We have the right to grieve in anyway we see fit, just as the Anthonys have the right to hate us for it.
    Caylee deserved the best and never got it in life. If she has to get it now from strangers then so be it. Caylee is what matters, not LP, Cindy or us IMO.

    Injustice for Caylee Marie Anthony.

    I think it's in poor taste and nothing but an attempt to gain more media and attention for LP.
    "Life's splendor forever lies in wait about each one of us in all its fullness, but veiled from view, deep down, invisible, far off. It is there, though, not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If you summon it by the right word, by its right name, it will come."

    Oh, of course...but that raises an interesting question...who can have this child declared dead legally. I'm thinking even with a guilty verdict, the As will continue to believe Caylee is alive. Who can assume that role, if anyone?

A search could have been conducted without all the press coverage in advance. TM says he was there with sonar previously, that didn't result in a media circus and the Anthony's on site. The whole thing is just so sad.
    Agreed.....and what is this nonsense about "working with the FBI" and the "FBI turning this BP search over to me" BS.

    This dude needs to get real, and those that think he is doing such a 'great job' need to take off the rose colored glasses and stop being so naive.
