My condolences to the family. I grew up just up the street from the Fontaine Family. I used to go hunting with her brother Tom. Caroline always impressed me with her friendly personality. Again, my condolences.

Skip, One of my fondest memories of Christmas is waiting to open the box of cookies your mom made for our family. She would bring them over or call one of the five of us in as we headed home from school. She would have them ready a few days before Christmas. The box would be placed in the dining room with strict instructions not to open before Christmas eve. One of my favorites were the peanut butter cookies with the chocolate kiss. I hope your mom knew how much that meant to us. She was such a great cook. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers even though my mom was not able to attend yesterday's service. The house across the street will always be Caroline's home. God Bless

It is always said to hear about losing a neighbor as I would pass her at various times either going or coming from school or on my way to the ballpark. Was always kind and cordial. Bob Fougere
