Some of my best childhood moments were spent with the Elliotts on Honeoye Lake. Your mom made the most heavenly delicious french toast! I still haven’t figured out how she did it! Berryland, flashlight tag, beach fires and playing in the woods - it was all so much fun. I know you’ll miss your mom, she was wonderful. ❤️

Loved that lady! She was always so gracious and loved to laugh. Like Marri said, the french toast was awesome. I can still hear her laugh.
