Michael Schiavo's book about the fight to let his brain-damaged wife die, called "Terri: The Truth," is to be released today, the day before a book by Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, "A Life That Matters: The Legacy of Terri Schiavo, a Lesson For Us All," is released. Friday will be the first anniversary of Terri Schiavo's death, 13 days after her feeding tube was removed.

The remains of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman who died March 31 after her feeding tube was removed, were interred in a Clearwater cemetery, her husband's lawyer said. Two days after her death, Schiavo's body was cremated and her husband, Michael Schiavo, was given possession of her remains. He had said her ashes would be buried at a family plot in Pennsylvania. But Monday his lawyer, George J. Felos, said in a statement that the service and interment occurred in Clearwater.

Dr. Ronald Cranford, a neurologist and medical ethicist whose positions in thorny right-to-die cases drew both praise and vilification, has died. He was 65. Cranford died Wednesday at a hospice in the Minneapolis suburb of Edina after a 30-month battle with kidney cancer.

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, acting under emergency authority approved earlier in the day, ordered a feeding tube restored Tuesday to a brain-damaged woman recently taken off life support at her husband's request. Bush's order came at the end of two days of rapid legislative and executive action in the case of Terri Schiavo, 39, who has been in a coma-like state since 1990. Critics said the law that authorized Bush's action might be unconstitutional.

For the final two weeks of Terri Schiavo's life, Jon B. Eisenberg was part of her husband's legal team. But he knew he wouldn't walk away with a fee. Instead, the California lawyer said, he spent $2,800 of his own money to travel to Washington when it looked as if the Supreme Court might agree to hear the case. "Flight, hotels, food, cab, Alka-Seltzer, coffee -- it all came from my pocket," said Eisenberg, an appellate attorney from Oakland.

Like many Christians, the Rev. Mark Brewer and his wife, Carolyn, disagree over what should happen to Terri Schiavo. Carolyn Brewer believes the brain-damaged woman's feeding tube should be reinserted. Although her husband agrees with her underlying principles, he wonders whether it is right to prolong Schiavo's existence in such an impaired state of consciousness. "We should always protect life, because God gives life," Brewer, the head pastor at Bel Air Presbyterian Church, said Sunday.
