Marine's Funeral Hijacked by PA. LT.Gov Catherine Baker Knoll w/anti war MSG:'I want you to know our government is against this war,' " Goodrich said.
The funeral for Staff Sgt. Joseph Goodrich, 32, was highjacked by LT Gov Knoll who decided to butt in while friends and family gathered to pay homage to the fallen Marine who had been a policeman in McKeesport and Indiana County. "Our family deserves an apology," Rhonda Goodrich said. "Here you have a soldier who was killed -- dying for his country -- in a church full of grieving family members and she shows up uninvited. It made a mockery of Joey's death."
