Dear Sun staff,
I’m devastated for you all.
Truly this is a very sad day, especially so for the staff, but even for people like me who have a past association with the paper.
I have such happy memories of my time there and of all the people who became such good friends.
I think you have done a fantastic job growing the paper and responding to the challenges of the digital age — no doubt all done on a shoestring.
I know from my experience just how challenging the job can be and under your stewardship it became a much bigger one.
I do think, although I didn’t really appreciate it at the time, that the Sun did provide an alternative voice and that the country will be the poorer for its demise.
