Thank you, Caroline!

As part of our tribute to Caroline Nevin’s years of service to CBABC and the legal profession in this province, we reached out to past presidents, executive committee members, volunteers and staff.

So many individuals shared their personal stories, memories, and well-wishes with us.

The response was overwhelming.

When we looked at all the responses together, a strong theme began to emerge: laughter.

“Laughing together,” was one favourite memory. It was “the kind of laughter where you laugh so hard it makes you cry.” And another said, “Caroline’s laugh would brighten any day.”

When asked to share the funniest memory of Caroline, one respondent captured it well, “Just one? Caroline has a delicious sense of humour that always made working with her great fun.”

Another theme arose out of the responses: dedication. One read, “Regardless of the demands on her time and patience, Caroline was always exceptionally engaging with people.”

We also asked people to share something they would say to Caroline if she was standing right in front of them. These responses were the most illuminating. They gave a clear vision of what Caroline means to the legal profession in this province and across the country.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you at CBABC... You made it fun... You deserve every accolade and kind word you’re receiving.”

Other key words jumped off the page, “Your... friendship... commitment... strength... dedication... hard work... wisdom... inspiration... support... thoughtfulness... good spirits... common sense approach... incredible humour... strong, steady force... leadership.”

Many listed Caroline’s qualities as a leader: “You have been an excellent listener. A fabulous problem solver. You have a wicked sense of humour. You made a lasting impact on the CBA. Your leadership is well respected by all of your peers across the country. Your passion for the CBA remains an inspiration... a reflection of your even greater passion for life.”

More succinctly, “Caroline, you made a difference!”

Join us in thanking Caroline for everything she’s accomplished and wish her well on this next phase of her journey.
