Appalled at illness letter

Sir -- I am shocked and saddened at the letter (Sunday Independent, Jan 3, 2010) headed 'Lenihan has hurt us all'.

There is no comparison to the feeling being experienced by Brian Lenihan's family at present due to his illness, and the affects of the budget. I cannot understand how a person could write such a letter, I am truly appalled, and I wish Brian the best in the future.
