Women's love is no contest

Sir -- I am writing regarding Barry Egan's article (Sunday Independent, November 14, 2010), on his interview with Morah Ryan.

As a woman who also lost a husband I had loved but separated from, and before that lost one of my young children to cancer, I have experience of being in her shoes -- but also in the shoes of Melanie Verwoerd.

While I have nothing but deep sympathy for Morah and her children, I am beginning to find Barry Egan's repetitive use of the words "exquisitely dignified" grating and wearying.
