Dearest Hansen family. I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Hansen's passing. When I worked as a cashier at Quality Markets out on Rochester Road, he would always come through my line. Once he found out my father-in-law was a Marine, he would tell me all kinds of stories of his years in the Corp. He always had his Marine hat on. Since I left work there I have always wondered how he has been doing. He was such a pleasant customer and I will miss him a lot. My deepest condolences to you. Mr. Hansen was a very special person who I feel very privileged to have known. Rest in peace Mr. Hansen. Hoo rah!
