My heart is broken that we lost dear Carolyn..Julie, Carolyn often spoke of you as her wonderful systir...I'm so happy that she had you and her lovely family to help her through this wretched disease. I miss you Carolyn.

I miss Carolyn so much. We clicked so fast and wrote each other long rambling emails. We fit in each other's hearts as family, and found amusement and joy in the conspiracy and confusion it might bring to "adopt" each other on Facebook - her listing me as her niece, me listing her as my aunt. The world is a darker place without her, and I still find myself opening a blank email to start writing her to tell her about something that happened. To share the amusement, the outrage, the frustration, the gamut of life, as she shared with me. I miss her terribly. - Susanne

It's hard to see this, and to write here. It makes it more real, and I don't want it to be real. Your hearts must be broken. Mine assuredly is. I feel so lucky to have become friends with Carolyn. The only contact we didn't have was in person, but we communicated in every other way possible. I will always miss her, but she will always live in my heart. I hope it comforts all of you to know how much she was loved and appreciated by so many of us in our virtual community. The world seems emptier now. But we will cherish her words, images, and the memory of her kind, generous heart. Kathi

My sincere condolences to all who loved Carolyn. She will forever hold a special place in my heart. She was the first person to reach out to me on social media when I was trying to come to terms With my de novo stage IV diagnosis. I will miss your Kindness, Humor and Passion. Until we meet again, rest in peace.

I'm totally heartbroken for you all. I wish I could have met your beautiful Carolyn. Always kind and generous and had time for everyone even with lots of things going on in her life and with this awful disease. I will miss our chats over social media and laments on life. We laughed and cried together and consoled each other in various aspects of our lives which our paths happened to cross. I'm so so sorry for you, your family and friends. The tributes say it all, she was a very special person in so many ways - sincere condolences - sending all our love Jo, Jeff, Regan & Faron Taylor xxxx (@abcdiagnosis)

My sincere condolences Julie to you and your family. Carolyn was a fantastic photographer and artist and I know she touched the hearts of many people. Rest in peace Carolyn

There's nothing I could ever say to convey how amazing Carolyn was or how fan-freaking-tastic a syster/friend/mother/aunt/daughter/cousin/grandmother/person she was. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Rest well Carolyn, rest well.

Worked with Carolyn in her very early years at Wagner Equipment and she was a delight in every way. A beautiful soul even then in 1980's so beautiful to see that her life was completely filled with love and artistic endeavours. Life takes us through it with many roads.Carolyn appears to have followed many. Celebrate her life with gusto and happy memories of your darling Carolyn... Jean Gilmore of Vancouver (

I only 'knew' Carolyn through you, Julie, and some of her blog posts and comments on your posts and she came across as a strong, life-loving wonderful person who must have been great fun to be around. You were clearly so proud of her. You (and your mom) have been in my thoughts so much over the last weeks. You will never stop missing her but I hope, in time, the pain of losing her will be less acute and jagged. I wish I could wrap my arms round you and give you a big comforting hug - but am sending my thoughts and my love. Mary
