Don't attack the dead I

I was appalled by the news story “Monsour Medical Center founder recalled for intensity, short temper” (Jan. 9 and TribLIVE.com) by Richard Gazarik.

Everyone is aware that the Trib has a vendetta against the Monsour family — we are reminded daily with the ridiculous countdown on the Greensburg Opinion page. The Monsour organization may have made some major mistakes, but when a family member passes away, please show some respect.

Why not put differences aside and write about the many good things “Dr. Bill” did, as noted in his obituary? He was a husband, father, brother and good friend to many. He was my father's employer, physician and, most of all, his good friend. He could not have been more compassionate and caring before and after my father passed away.

Mr. Gazarik, how would you like to read an article like the one you wrote about one of your family members when you were grieving your loss? I hope you never have to face that day. The article was cruel and uncalled for, and should never have been written nor approved for publication.
