Dear Tony,

What abysmal news!

I’m so sorry and send my condolences to you all.

My goodness, I joined the Sun shortly after it opened -—Tracy was a baby so it must be nearly 50 years ago.

I remember Major John Barritt calling me and begging me to join the staff.

“But Major Barritt,” I said, “you told me it was far more important to stay home with my babies!”

“Yes, he replied, but not right now, I need you here.”

Well, for one pound a day, how could I refuse?!

I had many happy years with the paper, short time, part time and contributor.

I mourn the loss with you all.

Best wishes wherever you go and whatever you do.

Remember, when a door closes, another opens.
