Well, if it included Mrs Kelly's full name, date of birth and PPS number
it would be useful for people trying to get at her money.
If it mentioned an embarrassing illness then I'm sure the gossips of
Ballywherever would love to get their hands on the info and could make
her life unpleasant.
Surely at some stage in your life you've confided in someone and
revealed some personal info that you don't want told to the world at large?
