SUN subscribers praise ‘columnist’ as caring man

Longtime subscribers to the Las Vegas SUN expressed sorrow Saturday upon learning of Hank Greenspun's death. Some broke into tears as they praised him as a caring man and an informative columnist.

Adele Epstein, a subscriber for 29 years, said she probably wouldn't have taken the paper if Greenspun had not been its publisher.

"He was a wonderful man," Epstein said. "I just loved his columns. When he wrote a column, it was something else."

Epstein, who knew Greenspun personally, said he was a caring, giving person.

"He did many, many things that were wonderful," she said. "He did things for people that he didn't even want in the paper."

J'Lene Collet, a 29-year subscriber, said Greenspun wrote "straight to the point."

"He told it as it was," Collet said. "I just think he was a real fair guy."

Ellen Bromberg, a 25-year subscriber, said she favored the SUN because Greenspun was generous in printing announcements, stories and pictures on the society page.
