Having lost my father less than two years ago, I tend to be drawn to articles concerning the loss of a parent (“Mourning Mom and inherited scars,” Nov. 24). As most are lovingly poignant, I was disturbed as I read Marta Fuchs’s “inappropriate airing” of her recently deceased mother’s shortcomings and their obviously difficult relationship.
It saddens me that if this author could not show respect for her mother, perhaps NJJN could have taken that opportunity.
Ms. Fuchs is obviously capable of great feeling, as she describes her sorrow when her beloved father passed away. But I question her motive for this writing and don’t feel that her professional credentials justify her openness. Perhaps she should seek help from a psychotherapist.
