Memories Timeline


  1. I new the days would come that we would lose our Dad, I knew the day would come that we would lose our mom. We are never prepared for when it happens. We just lost our Dad a short time ago, now our mom is with our Dad and the rest of our loved ones who past,

    The pain is strong, The sadness is stronger, knowing we will not see our Mom again in our life of this earth is devastating. Knowing we will Join Her again when we pass brings happiness to our hearts for the day we are all together in a place we call peace and love

    I love you Mom I am so glad I told you many times before you passed "I love you" and to hear you say it back makes life on this earth worth so much.

  2. I will always remember Janet & Freddie and their big personalities. They were my Godparents. I felt special because of that. I spoke to Janet 3 years ago when my Mom passed and we had a lovely conversation about family and life. What a lively discussion. I will never forget it. My deepest condolences to the family

  3. I have very fond memories of my cousin Janet. I remember babysitting her when she was a little girl.
    My sincerest condolences to her theee sons, Freddy, Darren and Anthony; and to her sister Lynn and niece Nikki. May she Rest In Peace!

  4. I met Janet and her husband Fred in St Petersburg. We became good friends and Fred said Janet was my pal. On sundays we went to a great pizza delie and had many laughs. My family was in Rhode Island and they made me feel like family. So i did not feel alone. Also met their three sons who was certainly brought up right being respectlful and nice. I am back in Rhode Island and i think of the Decarlos and miss them so much but glad i had such wonderful times with them. God bless Janet and her family. I am blessed to know them.

  5. Anthony, I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose a mom.
    I remember her so well! My condolences.

  6. I will miss our telephone conversations. I wish you Godspeed. Keep those with you now laughing. Your sister Lynn

  7. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
    love leaves a memory no one can steal.

    Good bye Janet i will miss you.

  8. Fred, Anthony & Darren,
    Our sincere condolences on the loss of your mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  9. Our Mom was a very good mother to us when we were young….She picked us up at the Fairview and Parklane Cinemas and never complained….She would go to my baseball games when our father was working hard days and nights for us. They did everything correctly. She was outspoken and stubborn, made mistakes like everyone else but oddly never admitted it. She loved Reeses Pieces, or Peanut Butter Cups she often could be found eating them in the dark.

    Our Mom new she was had a bad heart, but she did not seem to be concerned. She still was out everyday, and in the end tried the best she could to leave a United family although as many families become estranged due to a variety of reasons – she did everything she could to make a stable home for us when we were young and I for one will never forget.

    I miss you mom, even the arguements, yelling, and such but I just wish sometimes I could call you to talk some stupid thing to you.
