Tribute & Message From The Family


My partner for 50 years. It would have been a gift to extend it another 50 years. Lia and Christopher could not have had a better MOTHER. She didn't just give unconditional love, she gave them the sun, the moon and the stars. Her son-in-law Paul truly became her second son. She couldn't have picked a better mate for Lia. Being a Grandmother made her life complete. Sierrah, Mitchell, Cayden and Paxton gave her sunshine when the clouds were most dark. She was also so happy to have the chance to meet Verenice, Christophers' better half. Her many friends have lost a precious jewel they will never have again. She touched
everyone with a gentle hand and an enormous heart especially the hundreds and hundreds of patients cared for in over 40 years of being a Registered Nurse. For all of us our future days will never be as bright. For me in particular there is a large portion of my heart that's broken and I doubt it will ever be mended. No words can express had badly I will miss her. The last seven years of her life were pure hell. Hopefully now she will have peace and comfort. All our love goes with her.
--Joe De Carpio

Condolence & Memory Journal

Carolee and I were cousins. Our mother's were sisters and, growing up, as kids, we spent a great deal of time over each others' house. In our early 20's Carolee became a Registered Nurse and I became a cop in the NYPD. She married Joseph and they both moved to California for a better life. I guess the geographical distance and responsibilities of raising our respective families and work caused us to slowly drift apart. I don't know what caused me to "Google" her after all these years, but I was shocked and saddened by the result. To Joseph and her loving family, please accept my sincere condolences. She was a real Sweetheart, as, I'm sure, her family and those who knew her need no reminders. If it is any consolation, know she is in a better place, free of pain and suffering with her Mom and Dad, Lillian and Howard. Again to Joe and her family go my deepest sympathies and to stay safe and strong.

Lil Ma,

As we said our last goodbye and laid you to rest today, i will never forget the special place you hold in my heart. In 13yrs, you have shared your home, your family, and unconditional love for me and your grandson Anthony. Only those closest to us understand the importance you have contributed in our lives. I will miss your compassion, our chats about current events, and your love. No matter how much time had pass in between, we always picked up as if it were just yesterday. I can still hear your cynical laughters about things that didn't make sense or disapproved of. *smh .. lol .. You were wise, intelligent, and strong as a lion. You overcame inevitable hurdles and still managed to derive the strengh to be an enotional caregiver. Everything i wanted in a mother, you provided without hesitation. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU Carolee De Carpio!! Heaven is lucky to gain a special woman as yourself.

I've had the honor of knowing Carolee the past 18 years. Little did I know the first time that I met her and her wonderful family during Christmas Eve that she became such an important person in my life. Carolee, you had such a presence, infectious laugh and some of the best humor I've ever been around. You were always so heartfelt and loving towards me, Steve and Anthony and Jackson. I am going to truly miss you and I feel blessed to have been able to seeing you last Christmas Eve. May you rest peacefully now. We love you.
