I received the news from mother who got the call from Betty Lenzi (Gregory Stone's mother). Both Betty and my mother are cousins who grew up in Oregon. Soon afterward I made a cell phone call to Frank Lenzi who works at KPAM radio station in Portland, Oregon, so I could express my condolences and introduce myself as a cousin of Gregory Stone. I wanted to contact his mother, Betty, and asked him to relay my permission to contact her by giving him my cell phone number. A few hours later, Betty called. We chatted for about 15-20 minutes. It was a nice chat. Voice of a strong and proud mother. We talked about how she remembered me when I was a toddler. That was the only time I ever "met" Gregory when he was little as well. My mother held him in her arms only a few times before we moved to Washington state. That was the last time my mother ever saw Gregory.
The Lenzi and Stone families have gone through a lot anguish but are extremely proud of their son who loved the Armed Forces life. What made it especially more troubling is Michael Moore's despicable act of filming Maj. Gregory Stone's funeral at Arlington Cemetery. Moore used the film clip of the funeral in his highly innacurate and tasteless Fahrenheit 9/11 movie. An outrage!
The Lenzi and Stone families were completely shocked and outraged when they were contacted by the press about the film clip of their funeral. Michael Moore is an unAmerican weasel who have no respect and neither the courage to even ask the Lenzi and Stone's family for permission to use the film clip. A typical M.O. of Michael Moore. A sure sign of a weasel.
July 12, 2004Sgt Akbar will get his full due when the time comes when the court decides. What he deserve is the death penalty. No less and let the maggots eat his flesh for a change.
Family of Major Stone Upset Over Michael Moore's Movie
The family of Idaho Air Guard, Major Gregory Stone said they're being exploited by filmaker Michael Moore.
Major Stone's family said a video clip from the funeral service last year at Arlington National Cemetery was included in Moore's controversial movie Farenheit 9-11.
While watching the movie, the family was shocked to see film clips of the burial.
"When he died, that was all Michael Moore gets from Greg," said Stone's aunt, Kandi Gallagher. "He doesn't get to throw Greg into his movie and profit off it."
