  1. Vince, Special thoughts are with you and the DiUbaldo family. I saw dear Carolyn’s obituary in the Syracuse Post Standard.
    I have so many fond memories of this wonderful woman. She was a very good friend to my late sister Diane Kringel. That’s how I met Carolyn and and we shared many fun times together, movies lunches in Edwards Tea Room, pizza at Pavone’s in Shoppintown Mall. Those memories never to be forgotten of this lovely woman.
    My sincere sympathy and Gods love embrace you all.

  2. Vince,
    We are so, so sorry to hear about Carolyn.

    When we moved onto Woodgate we could never have expected to have such wonderful neighbors. For 13 years we lived next door and shared many wonderful moments with you and Carolyn. I will never forget when we were grilling hot dogs she would always want one left on the grill…. for a LONG TIME. I remember bringing over a hot dog that was burnt to a crisp and she said it was perfectly cooked.

    Raj remembers and enjoyed the lunches with Carolyn, and going to dinner at the club.

    We have many wonderful memories of Carolyn and we will miss her.

    Sadly we could not make it to her memorial service, but we will plan on making a trip down to see you.

    Your friends and neighbors, Steve, Raj, Jonny, Krisssy, and Anthony.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear about Carolyn. I played golf with her for many years at Lakeshore. She was one of my favorites to play with. She was always so kind.

  4. A beautiful woman, who definitely broke the mold when she was born.

    My mom loved playing bridge with Carolyn; so, I, too, suffer a loss as another of Mom’s friends joins her in heaven. I consider her a friend from a different time. A wonderfully fun time.

    Her easy laughter, quick wit, kindness and eccentric sense of fun were all gifts to those who met her. Those red red lips, her wonderfully styled hats…Carolyn is memorable, and her final gift to us is that we always smile in our memory of her.

    God Bless the family, and special love to Vincent.
