Sir — In a tribute to the late Gillian Bowler (Sunday Independent, December 18), Liam Collins included a quote from her from 2004: “Time is the most precious thing we have and yet we don’t realise it.”

Although Ms Bowler died at a relatively young age, she could never be described as wasting time. She achieved enormously in her life.

She never let her health problems in her early life, or the fact she didn’t finish her education, hold her back. She is an example of someone who took life by the scruff of the neck and lived it. On Sunday, I watched that excellent film The Way on that soon-to-cease channel UTV Ireland.
