Caroline was a beautiful girl! I remember our conversations on the school bus riding to the high school hockey games. We traveled to all the games to watch our sons play and Caroline’s mother also rode the bus with us...Mrs. Dolloff was an exceptionally nice woman. Caroline and Billy produced a beautiful family! Rest In Peace Caroline.
