Thinking of you and your family as the anniversary of Carol's passing approaches.

To Mike, Kim, Kelli & the entire family: we extend our deepest sympathies. It’s hard to know where to begin when someone has touched your life so profoundly....Carol Ann was one of those people to me and to my husband. She was the first friend I ever made. One of my earliest memories is as follows: I was 3 yrs old and standing at the front screen door of our home at 14 King St and looking across at the Trackey home at 14 Frank St. There was a little girl on the sidewalk in front of the house and she was dancing and singing. I remember my mother telling me tha t she was moving in and that I would get a chance to meet her, soon and meet her, I did. Carol Ann was 3 years my senior, so it took a little bit of time for me to catch up, but she was my steadfast friend from Day 1 and it didn’t matter to her that I was a younger kid. That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Others may remember her as “Dom”, but she will always be Carol Ann to me... With a personality larger than life, she loved to sing and listen to music and she had a deep appreciation for the music of bygone days, like no one else I’ve ever known. She introduced me to Billie Holliday, Dianna Ross, & The Supremes, and led me to an appreciation for artists such as Rosemary Cluny, Buddy Hollie, Jerry Lee Louis, Connie Francis and many, many more. We would sit for hours on her front porch, in the backyard, or the living room, listening, singing along and having wonderful conversations trying to figure out life and love. I can’t even begin to imagine the number of times I made the short jaunt across the street to that beautiful little house that sat kitty-corner from mine. We shared so very much growing up. Eventually, Carol Ann would introduce me to the boy who would, eventually, become my husband and the father to our three children...that was 41+ years ago. She was always looking out for me, always with a shoulder to cry on, a sympathetic ear and an encouraging nudge when I needed one. We laughed together and cried together, we spent summer nights sleeping under the sparkling sky, trying to count the shooting stars as we talked our way through the hours until dawn. We slathered ourselves with butter (not knowing better) in effort to achieve the perfect tan...which she always did and I did, never. Then we would take her perfectly tanned body and my burnt to a frightening shade of pink one and head off to the drive-in movies, the (Hudson Falls) bowling alley, the pool in my backyard or head up to Trout Lake for a day at camp. Those were great times. Moments etched in my memory and on my heart. Later, when we both married and became mothers, we were blessed by seeing our children play together. The seasons of a lifetime come and go, friendships ebb and flow and some leave an indelible mark on you. Ours did. She had a heart of gold and she always put on a happy face, but I saw my dear friend, I knew her vulnerabilities, her soft places, and she felt deeply and she was beautiful... I love you, Carol Ann Mandolare, save a seat at the table for me and say “Hi”, to Hellie. 💔💝 Jane (Jordan) Woolley (& Paul Woolley)
