RIP, Marianne

I am not entirely sure if it's breaking too much privacy, but as it's been in a UK national paper, the text is out, anyway. If you feel you rather would not read what Leonard wrote to Marianne, don't click the link.
Apart from the privacy issue, this is really a very moving article.

Hello Pe Gu and thank you for your post.

I too considered the privacy issue - in fact, I'm not sure the text should have been made public at all - but as I had already heard the text quoted in posts on this topic, I decided to include the link anyway.

However, it was not clear from my post (above) that the letter was quoted during the interview so I have edited the entry to include that information in case people would rather not hear it.

I hope this helps.
