EASTON - An Easton couple who lost three family members in the Sept. 11 attacks is feeling a sense of justice today after hearing about the death of Osama bin Laden.

Lee and Eunice Hanson say they're excited about a Sept. 11 planned memorial, but more than anything are relieved to hear the man behind the deaths of their family members is dead.

The Hansons' son, daughter-in-law and 2-year-old granddaughter were killed when their Los Angeles-bound flight was hijacked on Sept. 11. The Hansons attended a town fundraiser yesterday for a Sept. 11 memorial that is expected to be placed outside an Easton library.
