Elaine Gelber Thank you for this interesting interview with my mother! I learned a few things about her, her family and Sodus Point that I never had heard before. One story that didn’t come out in the interview was that she happened to be in the old Sodus Point lighthouse during the attack on Pearl Harbor and then 60 years later on 9/11, when she was volunteering at the lighthouse museum.
