So sorry to hear about Elfriede had many good laughs with her at the campground she kept us all inline! She always enjoyed it when we brought her tea from Tim Hortons. From one season to the next she was always ready for camping! She will be dearly missed! Thinking of you all at this sad time. Hugs to you all
