When longtime Greeneville Sun Columnist Bob Hurley died this week, he left a rich legacy behind him.
It’s a legacy of more than 40 years of heartwarming, often-fascinating, frequently-touching, sometimes-very-funny columns and feature articles published in the Sun between the late 1960s and the end of December 2013, just a few weeks ago.
Do you have thoughts, memories, perhaps even photos you would like to share about Bob and his work?
If so, the Sun invites you to share them with others in the community by sending them to a special email address which has been established for that purpose: RememberingBob@GreenevilleSun.com
Or you are welcome to write out your thoughts or memories and drop them off at the front desk of the newspaper, located at 121 West Summer St., in Greeneville.
If you would like to send along a photo of yourself to run with your message, that’s fine also.
Please include your name, your address or community (Greeneville, Mosheim, Mohawk, Tusculum, Chuckey, Horse Creek, Baileyton, etc.), and your telephone number, in case we need to get in touch with you. Your telephone number will not be published.
Please email or bring your messages to us by Thursday night. The office is open until 5 p.m., and there is also a drop box at the rear of the building (the Irish Street side), at the bottom of the ramp leading up to the green double doors.
We are presently hoping to publish at least some of the responses in Saturday’s issue: a day when one of Bob’s columns would usually have appeared.
