    Shirley Phelps-Roper is asked if her father was near death yesterday.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Nikki Doll told me she saw Fred Phelps' family picketing the Midland Theater in Kansas City, Missouri, and approached Shirley Phelps-Roper, his daughter on Wednesday. 'I heard on the local news that her father was dying, so I thought it was a good idea to ask the question. She looked at me so evil and mean and glared at me and one of the guys with her started shouting.' Phelps, founder of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church - which has picketed more than 53,000 events - died later that night. He was 84.
