Mandy Quinn checks on Jerry Fox during his daily lunch visit to the Traverse City Applebee's. "When Hilda died I wasn't cooking much," said Jerry Fox. "I came here and met Mandy, an that's when it all started." Fox has lunch daily at the Traverse City Applebee's following the death of his wife several years ago. The staff has become like a second family to the 86 year-old.
