  6. BETTY TYSON says:

    I have many wonderful memories of Mary Ellen and Waldo. My favorite story is of Mary Ellen( who did not care much for fishing) being talked into going out in the boat in Maine and catching a fish quite by accident.When the fish came flying into the boat, she screamed and threw fish and the rod and reel back into the ocean. I will always think of Mary Ellen with a smile, she will be sorely missed. Betty Tyson
