Many was the time my wife Susan and I would run into Mrs. Densel at the Market Basket Shopping Center as she was going to and from her work there. She always had the time to exchange friendly words and make our day a better one.
Our deepest sympathies to Ed, Regina and all family on the passing of a really nice person that we all will miss.
