      Yes, truly sad. And the fact that I never went in 20 years is downright criminal.

        maybe the other family members that run the Tamale House will take it over?

          Judging from this statement, I kind of doubt it.
          ".I know everyone would have wanted us to continue his business, but my sister and I have other career paths. It's not that we didn't have respect for our father and his dream, it's just that we don't have the 'taco bug'."

            oh Ithought there was anotherTamalehouse that was part of the same family was seperate but may take the other one over

              Tamale House East is operated by cousins of the family.

              Sounds almost exactly like what Dot Hewitt's family said when she passed and they chose not to keep Dot's Place open.
