In Memory of Cameron Taylor Kinsman

Our hearts are broken that Cameron’s beautiful life has been brought to an abrupt end.  

Cameron was born at the Ottawa General Hospital on June 9th, 2005.

Cameron showed great creativity, artistic abilities, and found unique ways to occupy her time. 

She loved her friends and dragged them on numerous adventures.  She loved to explore Orleans and discover new places to experience.  

Cameron’s interests were diverse as she was immersed in pop culture; loving all things music, movies, and fashion.  She was crafty, losing herself in painting, making candles, upcycling, jewelry making, etc.  

She breathed new life into every situation she was involved in, whether it be good, bad, or in between.

Cameron was a great sister, a loving daughter, caring granddaughter, fun niece, and crazy friend.

Cameron had a fiery aura.  She made a statement everywhere she went.  Her height attracted attention.  Her warm heart drew many people to stay. 

She was extremely photogenic.  Every picture captured her beauty.  

She loved to ask deep probing questions that made you think long and hard.  

Cameron was so smart and clever.  She was witty, quick, and funny.  Cameron came up with ideas to make everyday things, like watching the sunrise, lying in the grass, or swinging at the park, a once in a lifetime event.

We can all add a pinch of Cameron’s essence to our everyday.

Cameron’s Celebration Day is going to be held on Tuesday, August 15th, 2023

Condolences

Our deepest condolences to Cameron’s family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

We had what was to be our last supper together in a place called Dreamland. A favorite of yours. Plates whirled and glasses clinked in an effortlessly cozy-cool atmosphere, where you were comfortable as a regular. You laughed easily, you flirted with a friend, you shared secrets.

We told stories to each other of foolish things, of youthful folly.
I ; the old uncle who had seen some things. You; the young niece who was living them right then. We didn’t know it, but we were caught then in that ever-present problem of communication between young and old: We both thought we understood each other and we both, of course, were wrong.

I might try to understand, but our stories are our own even as we share them. And it’s not the ones we tell to others that are dangerous, it’s the ones we tell to ourselves.

My favorite memory of you was in a place called Dreamland.

Now is the time for you to exist in others and no longer as yourself.

You have been divided among us who remember you. Held in our memories unevenly, brief and light to some, and deep and heavy in others.

For all the things you thought and will not think: for all you ought to have said and will not say; for all you have done and will not do; we love you and forgive you.

You have been spread out between us. I hope that means there is space enough now for all the pain and hurt and longing to slip away.

We will hold onto the best parts, and by our living, celebrate you, by going forward we’ll bring you with us, by grieving we’ll help you find the peace in us, that you could not find alone.

To love you now, we will need to love ourselves. To forgive you, we will need to forgive ourselves. As we heal from this, you’ll heal with us.

You’ll live as we live, until we too must pass on as a memory for
others. So a part of us, large or small that our loved ones will
remember will come from you. In that way we’ll be together again
in dreamland.

Your Uncle Gregory

I remember sitting in class with her and having light, fun conversations. We’d smile at each other in the hallway, to say hello.

I didn’t know her very well, but she was always kind to me. I admired her confidence and her contagious smile. Rest easy, angel.

I never had the pleasure of formally meeting Cameron, but I did know that we went to the same highschool. My deepest condolences to your family, and friends. May her memories, life and joy live on forever. <3

My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your beloved daughter. My thoughts are with all of you in these difficult times. May you find some peace.

Colin, Carolyn, and MacKenzie. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. My most heartfelt condolences go out to all of you.

I never knew her personally. I don’t think we’d ever even talked but I can say she for sure lit up every room she had walked into. You could tell from her aura that she was a kind and caring soul. Im sorry for your loss.

Cameron took me in when I was the new kid in 7th grade ,she guided me ,protected me and made me laugh. She was the sweetest person I have ever met.She was loved by so many people.She always had a smile on her face that gave life to a dull room.I’m so sorry for everyone grieving.She will be missed

Colin, there are just no words, while I never had the pleasure to meet Cameron, I can remember fondly how you talked about her. My deepest condolences, keep her memory close to your heart.
Much love
Scott

Our hearts go out to you, Carolyn and Mackenzie, in this most difficult time. We are deeply sorry for your loss.

My deepest condolences to all of Cameron’s family and friends.

Although I was not close with Cameron, she was in many of my classes throughout high school. She was always so kind to me and everyone around her. She will be missed.

Dear Caroline and Colin,
This is such a shock to hear about Cameron’s passing.
My heart felt condolences to you and your family.
There are no words that can explain the pain that you must be feeling.
I only have memories of your delight when talking about your girls.
Hugs,
Jan Jones

Thinking of you and your family as you navigate this heartbreaking loss and time.

Cam was a beautiful person- stunning, bright, so kind and caring, with a quirky sense of humour. An amazing soul. We hope that memories of her wonderful and joyful times bring you some peace as you grieve. Our family has many fond memories of Cam over the years she spent with us after school. Our deepest condolences

Our deepest condolences to you Carolyn and Mackenzie during this difficult time! May Cameron rest in peace ❤️!

I’m so sorry for your loss. Cameron and I met in dance class a long time ago and became best friends for the next few years after that. She was a big part of my life growing up and I’ll never forget the memories we made. Rest easy Cameron <3

Words do not begin to express the heartfelt sorrow we feel for the passing of Cameron. We are grateful to have experienced her kindness and fantastic sense of humour and fondly remember the girls’ dance classes, sleepovers and shenanigans. Wishing your family peace, comfort and strength as you navigate this difficult time and many happy memories as you celebrate Cameron’s short but impactful life.

Carolyn, Colin and Mackenzie. My sincere condolences. I wish you all peace, comfort, courage and love at this time and in the coming days.

My deepest condolences to the family of cam and to all of her friends my thoughts and deepest prayers are with you all ❤️❤️

To Colin, Carolyn, MacKenzie and family, you have my deepest condolences. Her light shone too bright to last very long.
May Cameron rest now in your hearts.

I’m so sorry for your loss, I had the pleasure of meeting Cameron once at a party and I wish I would’ve known her for longer but with only meeting her once I saw how much of a fun, kind, caring person Cameron was. She truly had a way of making people feel appreciated.

Dear Cameron,

I know we didn’t get to interact too too much as cousins but I knew you were always so kind and joyful in the family. Tolstoi was always a blast when we played lots of games together as a family and seeing you and Mackenzie for dinner when Nick and I went out to Ottawa with my mom. You were a hero in a lot of people’s hearts and you gravely impacted a lot of us. It’s very sad to not get another chance to see you again but I can at least say I got to know you a little bit as an amazing cousin.
Rest in peace 🕊️

Cameron baby doll
I miss you and talk to you everyday.
You made me a better mom and a better person. You have made me stronger. I will keep my promises to you. I love you to the moon and back. Goo Goo plus.
Love forever
Mom

My Dearest Cameron

I have not seen you since you were 12. But from birth to 12 was a challenging and fantastic time. From 9 to 12 you and Mackenzie by all accounts were my daughters and I could have not been prouder of the both of you.

We shared many many experiences that made me love you more each day. From campfires, water fights in the pool, simple errands and buying flowers for your mom (your idea), playing cards (luckiest player ever), teaching you how to skate, playing on the swings and monkey bars in the park, Xmas in Winnipeg eating perogies, cotton candy adventures and movies, movies, movies. Don’t forget the Easter egg hunts, you were always able to outsmart me every year.

I will never forget your mom calling Cameron, Cameron come for dinner, but you were always immersed in whatever you were doing. If it was not for pepperoni pizza and hot dogs I am sure you would have starved.

Cameron you were such a special girl, artistic, imaginative and kind to everyone (especially the fish of the sea). Your energy, aura, compassion and insight about life at 10 years old was more than most adults.

I listened to the heartfelt words from your piers. Wonderful.

I have never seen a mother love her girls more than Carolyn. I can only hope that she can manage somehow. Your beautiful sister Mackenzie will silently miss you the most, your bond was more special than anyone can ever know.

It is said that a parent should never outlive their child. I NOW understand what that means. I am sure loosing you Cameron will get easier with time (HELL NO). Cameron you will always be apart of me. I am honored to have been a part of your life. No words can ever come close to describe the pain of loosing you.

All I can say is I love you sweetie.

Rick

Our most sincere condolences to you all. I can’t begin to express how truly heartbroken I am for you having learned about the loss of your precious girl. Carolyn, I remember well the the pride and love you always expressed when talking about your wonderful daughters. I pray the wonderful memories you created together will give you strength.

Happy New Year Cameron
Mom here
It has been excruciatingly hard these last 5 months and terribly hard this past 11 days to bring in a new year without you. Thank you for all the wonderful memories you have given me and I implore you to continue helping me through this.
Love you to the moon and back.
Goo Goo plus. ❤️❤️❤️

Hi Cameron
Mom again
I don’t know why it helps me to write these messages to you. I know you aren’t at the funeral home. But here goes. I can’t believe it’s March. It feels like yesterday that you were still here. I still come up the stairs and expect you to be there. I still wonder what I can make you to eat or where I need to drive you today. I’m off to Phoenix to see Grampa and still feel you are coming with me. You should be coming. I miss you Cameron. I love you so much. I desperately need your spirit to stay on earth to help me deal with this. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
