We’ve shared some of the highest of highs during our growth and, like others in this industry, we’ve been through the lowest of lows. Today as we continue our journey with the dozens of people here at Sun who put up with our craziness all day, I can honestly say I could never imagine anyone else by my side but my friend, my brother, the mayor of everywhere…Julio Aponte.”
