From Ms Lynne J. Collins

Sir: Has it never occurred to S. James (Letters, 22 August) that the human race succeeds and prospers through the individual pursuit of self- fulfilment? And that this ambition and the personal qualities that drive it serve to inspire others to greater heights of achievement?

The family of Alison Hargreaves can be proud of her and will, I'm sure, consign to the rubbish tip mean-spirited, hurtful and sanctimonious remarks that only thinly disguise envy.

Yours sincerely,

Lynne Collins
