A deep sense of loss engulfs me knowing I will not be able to once again sit beside Carolynn and glean from her wisdom, kindness and wry humour. For us members of the Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre, Carolynn is truly an inspiration. With Wayne, she has been a tireless dedicated volunteer for years, gathering us weekly in our drumming circle. Many of us had never drummed before. We learned the true healing power of our circle, shifting our vibrations, setting our intentions, energizing our positive hopes for self and others. Even in this 2020 Covid year, Carolynn and Wayne continued our drumming, hosting us in their yard. Her courage in living the challenges of her life, her gratitude and love flowed to us all. I aspire to her example. Carolynn, I intend to honour your request that we continue drumming with Wayne. Hopefully, we will hear your drum echoing ours. Oct.photo

To Wayne, Michelle, Madeline, Jasmine and Lorne - my deepest condolences to you, I am so sorry for your loss. Carolynn was a gift to everyone who met her – she was remarkable for the way that she cared for people and she shared so much of her life – her poems, her paintings, her drumming. She told me once that for Wayne and her it was all about trying to lift people up and that doing so helped them too. Carolynn was a great inspiration to me. She was my cousin and she was my great friend. I will miss her so much, she will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
