Caroline was the oldest resident in the town of Southborough and a dear friend of our family. She went to school with my father John Bartolini the second oldest resident when he passed away in Jan. In good weather I would bring my father to Caroline’s house for a visit. They would talk about the old days growing up in Fayville and always smile.
