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.
