Mary's tribute to late husband was incredibly moving

Published 14/05/2015

The article by Mary Kenny (Life, May 12) was incredibly moving. I remember reading an article before by Mary about the difficulty of caring for her husband after his stroke and how people didn't visit him enough and appreciate that his mind was still active and intelligent.

Her words about changing from wife to widow were very poignant. Incredible, too, was her honesty in acknowledging that they were an odd couple and that a Serbian woman was the great passion of his life, and yet the two of them seemed to have a great relationship with "fun times and fighting times, too".

I hope she continues to live a happy and fulfilled life, content in the knowledge that she did everything she could for Richard in his final years.
