Missed by many

I was saddened recently when I stopped at Bentley's Bagel and Brew for coffee and found the store closed. I had been patronizing that store for many years, first when Henry opened it and later when Reyes took over the operation.

There was always a friendly atmosphere along with quality bagels and brew. Both owners also had a sense of community and a willingness to reach out and support neighbors in need. Their kindness will be missed by many.
