Al Molnar (The owner/founder of the In-n-Out) December 2004(From Cathy Gemain DeBruyn)  (from Cheryl Buzzell West) also I am sure most of you have seen the emails regarding Al Molnar.. from the 'In and Out'.. which was really supposed to be called 'Kwik Snack'..  He passed away in Texas.. his obituary was in the Register on Christmas Day.. Some of you may remember that he was our guest at the 3 way joint reunion many years ago.. quite a precious member of our high school days..and memories... Cheryl Buzzell West 12-31-2004

Got this from Henry Weibert; had to play it more than once.  Boy, did it bring back memories, especially about those french fries.
