Dear Niki and family,

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear one. My prayer is that the memories you hold will be of great comfort during this time. May there be laughter amid the tears as you remember good times with Carlo. And may you feel the tender care of the God of all comfort as you grieve his loss.

Dear Carlo,
All the times we spent yakking about anything and everything, in my backyard or yours, will be forever remembered with fondness and love. You were my big brother when Terry was away. You helped me make some difficult decisions in my life, and also celebrated with me, the ones of laughter and achievement. Thank you. I truly appreciated all of it.
Now, you're with Terry once again. Stay out of trouble! You two did get into some fine messes together down here. I remember the time when you both....oh, never mind. I'll just have to save that one for myself.
You were a mentor and a friend. The last time I talked with you, I also called you my brother.
For that, I am forever grateful.
Ciao Carlo. I'm going to miss you.

Carlo will always be the first memory that my wife (Francheska), daughter (Penelope) and I have of our life in the neighbourhood. We moved two doors down from him in 2016, and whether he was playing tunes on his guitar, serving espresso from his front porch, or just saying 'hi' to us as we rushed out the door to get the kids to daycare in the morning, he always made our day better. Auburn and Greenlaw won't ever be the same, and we extend our sincere condolences to his family for their loss.

I know Carlo for several years having met him through (his sister) Niki. We spent Christmas holidays together at my home enjoying the festivities. I also enjoyed spending time with him and his mom during the summer when she would prepare lunch for everyone. Carlo was right there making espresso and ready to serve dessert.

He always had stories to tell and always had a smile on his face. Carlo was a sweet soul who was appreciative of the phone calls on his birthday and at various times of the year. During the last month or so when he was sick, we talked every few days. Although he was sick he was still appreciative and had a kind word.

I will miss Carlo and our telephone calls and will fondly think of him.

My lovely sister-friend Niki, I am praying for you, Martin, Andrew and his family and Jessica. I am so glad you had the time together. God is so faithful. I know you are finding comfort in His provision and care. God bless you. Love you and appreciate you.

I have many memories of Carlo in High School and at the skating rink.

In the old neighbourhood my sisters and I would go skating at Earls court Park. On many occasions I would see Carlo skating away. He would often ask to skate with us never lacking in conversation. He was always such a gentleman.

May you Rest In Peace, Carlo
I’m sure You are conversing with your mom and dad right now!!

Looking back over 40 years that I've known Carlo I remember him as a gentle soul as Niki has said; soft spoken, full of information and very hospitable. Speaking to Carlo just a few days ago and knowing he was not feeling well that day he still gave me all his time and reflection on our conversation. May the Lord be with Niki and all of her wonderful family; Martin, Andrew and Jessica and all of their lovely family members at this time. Niki, the Falco sisters have always felt family with you and we will continue on - we feel your pain and we will be there for you when you need us.

Love Franca

My dear brother Carlo, as I reflected back on all the childhood memories we shared, the laughter and the tears, I could not help smiling. You had a way of ingratiating yourself back into my good graces no matter how much you teased me at times. You were my hero, the one I looked up to. I was so grateful to be able to tell you I love you a few short weeks ago and know it was received. I will forever remain your biggest fan and baby sister! Rest in peace my brother. Give my love to "mummy" and "daddy".
