The memories came flooding back as I looked at the slide show and thoughts of Lucky Wishbone - the old days. I am so sorry for your loss. I will try to get a real card off but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

We will all miss her - She was a joy to work with over the years when I've had the chance, and an icon in the family. Deepest sympathies to all the kids, grand kids and great ones, nieces and nephews all around the country . . .

Hello, Ada Marie, Larry, Peggy, Linda, Kenneth, and the rest of the family,
I regret that I was unable to attend your mom's funeral. I am very happy to have seen her at Dawn Rita's anniversary celebration & to have gotten one last kiss on the cheek from her! Your mom was a great teacher! I worked with her in Sunday School at Emery Park and she also taught me how to work the grill at the Lucky Wishbone when I was 16! I loved that she was so organized & industrious. I can still hear her laughing, often times to tears! Will look forward to having her greet me at the gate when the Lord takes me home! Praying for you all during this time of grieving. Love, Cathy (Waldon) Tullgren

I will miss Aunt Mary Lou. I remember when she worked at Lucky Wishbone. I loved to go there and see her beautiful smile. She was a wonderful mother, aunt, and friend. It was always a priviledge to go to her house and visit with all her loved ones. May the LORD take good care of her.
