Max died at 3:30 AM this morning here at home on the couch laying his head on my lap he gently and quietly passed away.

[ This is the actual picture that was sent to both Colin & Brennan’s cell phones.  Of course, it was only the size visible on the cell phone.  ]

Here’s is how they have characterized the above picture:
“Father sent to Brennan a picture of the family dog, once he had deceased, and sent it to Brennan on his cell phone.” – July 23, 2009 – Plaintiff’s Response to Defendant’s Emergency Petition For Modification of Custody
– Poor sentence structure, huh? Who had deceased? Father? Brennan? or the dog?

From the Transcript of the Hearing on October 31, 2008.

[In the middle of a discussion regarding a text message they said indicated I was destroying items and putting in the trash for BFI to handle. BFI was NOT even my trash company.]
Mr. Angst: Your Honor, there’s a picture of a dead dog on a table. I don’t know if someone snuck into his house – –
Mr Healy: There is not a picture relevant to that message.
Mr Angst: He sent that to – –
Mr Healy: I sent them a picture.
The Court: You put a dead dog on a table and sent it to your son?
Ms. Healy: The day of my mother’s funeral.
The Court: Would you just be quiet. Did you really do that?
Mr. Healy: I did. It’s not a picture of a dead dog – –
The Court: Is it a live dog?
Mr Healy: Your Honor, i can show you the picture if you like.
The Court: No. I want to know. Is it a live or dead dog?
Mr Healy: There is a picture. I had laid the dog in a blanket next to a candle. Just a very peaceful, calm picture. the dog did no tlook maimed or hurt. The dog looks alive.
The Court: Why is the dog here? You sent a picture of a dead dog to your son?
Mr Healy: It was the family pet.
The Court: Couldn’t you have sent a letter? Why did you have to send him a picture of a dead dog?
Mr Healy: I was very upset, Your Honor.
The Court: I understand why you’re upset.
Mr Healy: I was letting the children know their family pet died.
The Court: Couldn’t you have done that by letter? Why a picture of a dead dog?
Mr Healy: I was upset after the dog had died.
the Court: I understand why you’re upset. But why is it good judgement for you to upset them?
Mr Healy: It was not to upset them.
The Court: Please. Do you understand how somebody might be upset if they saw their dead pet?
Mr Healy: Your Honor, it – –
The Court: Would you stop? Mr Healy, do you know how bad that judgement is?
Mr Healy: Your Honor, the message that was sent along with the picture did not imply that it was – – I was not sending a picture of a dead dog. I was sending a picture of the family pet before I had the pet cremated.
the Court: Can I make a suggestion to you, Mr healy?
Mr Healy: Yes, sir.
The Court: Whether it’s the family pet, it’s still a dead dog. you sent a picture of a dead dog. Now whatever your motivation was, it was ill conceived. you would never send a picture of a dead animal to somebody.
Mr Healy: Your Honor, the children hadn’t been to see the pet. I kept telling them to come over to see him while he is sick.
The Court: If he didn’t do that, and he didn’t want to see the dog while it was alive, can we assume that he didn’t want to see the dog when he was sick, because otherwise he would have come over.
Mr Healy: I don’t know that the messages got delivered to my son.
The Court: Well, he certainly got the picture of the dead dog, didn;t he?
Mr Healy: This is the first I got confirmation of that.
The Court: Wow. You two folks – –
Mr Healy: Your Honor, the picture has him wrapped in a blanket – –
The Court: I dont; care if the picture has him wrapped in swaddling clithes and lying in a manger. That is not something you do. Now I only recently came to love dogs. Actually it;s been two years, coming up on two years. All right? Up until that point in time, I had no love for dogs. But I still do not want anybody to send me a picture of a dead dog, even when I didn;t love dogs. But to send me a picture of my pet if my pet had died? I, at my age, and with a lack of love of pets for 50-some years prior, would find that totally inappropriate and disconcerting no matter what the motivation was on your part.
Mr Healy: The text message was clearly not to anger or upset. Maybe it was too much information. but I was letting them know their family pet had died.
The Court: Boy, you just show such a lack of judgement.
Mr Healy: I’m sorry
The Court: And you’re asking me to – –
Mr Healy: Perhaps – –
The Court: You’re asking me to award you full custody of your son?
Ms Healy: Can I say something?
The Court: No, you may not. You’re asking me to award you full custody of your son?
Mr Healy: Yes, sir.
The Court: When you think it’s appropriate to send a picture of a dead dog to them?
Mr Healy: Yes, I do.
The Court: Okay, i understand.
Mr Healy: With the text along with the picture, Your Honor. I sent it to all of my friends as well. they all thought it was quite beautiful.
The Court: Well, that’s great. They’re not a 17-year-old boy.
Mr Healy: They’re not a 17 year old boy.
The Court: And it wasn’t their pet.
Mr Healy: This has nothing to do with BFI.

This has no relevance at all and continues for a few more pages until Judge Del Ricci accuses ME of derailing the proceeding. This is a father getting beat up over a text message, after the mother has denied visitation, denied access, been found in contempt of court, burglarized, vandalized, abducted the child, AND according to Judge Del Ricci’s logic, because I sent a picture to Brennan, I should not have custody. SERIOUSLY FLAWED LOGIC.
