To everyone wanting to protest at #FredPhelps funeral... Be better than he was, lest we leave the whole world blind.— Cody (@codylynnclark) March 20, 2014
Everyone's allowed to feel what they feel abt #FredPhelps' death. I ask: Is world a better place bcuz u were in it, or better bcuz ur gone?— Suzanne Brockmann (@SuzBrockmann) March 20, 2014

I'm going to miss Fred Phelps so much :( Best of luck @WBCSays— Devin Komiega? (@DKomiega) March 17, 2014
End of the #FredPhelps era signifies the beginning of better things. How about a religious system free of hate? That'd be ideal.— Tracey A. (@PlaysWithSticks) March 20, 2014
#FredPhelps reported dead. Good riddance frankly, but let's not follow his lead and picket a funeral, unless the signs read We Forgive You.— Jamie Bellinger (@JamieBellinger) March 20, 2014
Not going to cry over his death, but certainly not going to dance on his grave. #FredPhelps Don't sink to his level, people.— kimberlyjsmith (@kimberlyjsmith) March 20, 2014
To all of the Westboro Baptist Church, I'm very happy for your loss. Did I type that right? #FredPhelps— Crutnacker (@Crutnacker) March 20, 2014
#FredPhelps I grieve for the life that Fred Phelps led. I grieve for the people who Fred Phelps hurt. I grieve for his wider family...— H.Majesty h_e_l_e_n (@helen_monday) March 20, 2014
As much as a bad guy that he was, he died. A human, like you, died. We shouldn't glorify it. #fredphelps— Donova(n)� (@DonovannMusa) March 20, 2014
