Disappointed by the article about the former Ulster Unionist leader

I just want to say that I was disappointed to see the article on James Molyneaux (March 12).

I had the greatest respect for him. When he was my MP he took the time to come down on a Saturday night to my mother-in-law’s to see my wife and I.

We had not got a house when we got married and I wrote to him.

We did get a house and up to when he was leader I would have been UUP.

I do not know a lot about Jim’s private life, but I do know that he was a wartime hero.

The photograph in the News Letter on Saturday when Jim had not much time left in this world to me should not have been printed.

I respect the News Letter but I think this was an error of judgement.

The person who has come to talk about his great love for Jim would have been better to remember Jim privately.
