One time Ella and I had late tables at Stone Inn and we both wanted to get out of the restaurant and go home. The dog gone tables wanted hot fudge sundaes. The ice cream was hard as a rock and we were both trying to dip this stupid ice cream. We had also unplugged the hot fudge so we had to heat in microwave. Tears were running on both of us, we were so frustrated! Later, sitting and doing our paperwork, we cracked up over the incident.
I could tell hundreds of Ella at Stone Inn, but for now I’m going to hang on to them so I can reminisce with Ella one day. 😢🤓😢

Ella was a beautiful woman and a good hard working person I use to go into the restaurant and have her wait on me and my family
