After returning from a family vacation at Lake Burton in Rabun County, 3-year-old Mary Laura woke up Saturday morning and told her parents they “had to get to the candy store.” Geary and Melissa Bush complied with their oldest daughter’s request. The Gainesville couple put Mary Laura and her 2-year-old sister, Emma Ann, in their family car to make the short trip to Liberty Candy Company in Flowery Branch.
