My heartfelt condolences to all family and friends.

To say I am shocked would be understating what has happened. I did not know that Carol was ill until a fishing trip in July with my brothers.Her passing should reinforce the fact that none of us should take life for granted and we should live every day to its fullest.

I spent many happy years with Carol and I am thankful for those years. They were a large part of my life and she was a big part of who I am.

God bless and I pray that those she leaves behind can find something in all this to bring comfort. In my mind she is in a better place, laughing, probably drinking some white wine and chatting with Cathy and Dan, with Laya yapping and running in circles.

I would like to express my deep condolences to Carol’s loved ones. I was part of Carol’s work family at CTFS, we all loved her dearly. When she was in the office, there was light and laughter, generosity, style and beauty. Carol always had a smile or a funny story to share. She took the time to get to know people and really cared about everyone. I can’t even count the number of times Carol took the time to lend a listening ear and offered me advice, or made me walk around the office to get my steps. She was the most genuine person. I will never forget her contagious laugh, the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about Jack, her neices and nephews, her brother and sister and her Mom. She loved you all so much, and it showed in the way she always talked about you all. We heard about your weddings, showers, vacations, she loved all of it.
I will miss her so much, she was a very special lady as everyone who ever met her knows. She affected my life and made everything around her brighter. It’s not the same world without her.

I want to offer condolences to all the friends and family of Carol. I wish that we had spent more time together. We could have had some good chats about being married to a Selinger. I will miss her.

We want to extend our condolences to the family and Jack. I had the pleasure of meeting Carol many years ago in Halifax, NS where we both worked for MT&T. We instantly became friends and had kept in touch over the years when she moved to Texas. I was pleasantly surprised when I moved to Niagara on the Lake to find that Fonthill was not far away.
She was a dear and loyal friend, I will miss Carol’s positive outlook on life, smile on her face and just plain fun to be around. She was a kind, giving, loving friend!
You will always be remembered my friend!
Love Joanne+ Stephen

I worked with Carol at Canadian Tire and she was a very special person. She was very friendly, enocuraging, classy, and professional. We enjoyed having lunch together and sharing stories. My heart hurts knowing she is no longer with us.
My sincere condolences to Jack and her family.

My condolences to your Mom & Jack……..

Carol had an inspiring love for life……she was uplifting, her laughter was unique I can hear it now……..her strength was courageous, she was a loyal, supportive & a caring supportive girlfriend. No matter the time that elapsed between us we would pick up and not skip a beat…….

We first met at work many moons ago……. she use to work in the Cafeteria at MT&T …I would walk in for lunch her sun shine smile and bubbly self would just instantly put your day right. We became fast friends that has led into many wonderful loving memories…..some of my most treasure memories are of trips away to Bahamas, I remember smoking Big Cuban Cigars in the Bahamas by the pool and laughing our heads off smoking them only to wake up the next day to terrible headaches…but so worth it…the laughter.

Shopping Trips to the States; I remember a girlfriends shopping trip away to North Conway after the day was finished shopping we would all three sit on the edge of the tub, grab our glasses of wine and run hot water and soak our feet and talk about our day & purchases……then there was the Pee laughs…so many pee laughs…….the one that stands out is Carol pinning herself between a door frame because she was beside herself in fits of laughter that she kept saying….I’m going to pee myself……& she does she cries in fits of laughter that made us all have sore faces and stomachs from laughing so hard………the Best Memories…truly!!

I know Carol you are not far away as I only have to think of my memories with you & I Smile….We were all Blessed to have you touch our lives.
Keep Shining Carol……Love you……..
