Tributes have been pouring in for Caroline Cromie, a cherished member of the Carrickfergus community in Co Antrim, who tragically passed away while on holiday in Benidorm over the weekend. Caroline’s unexpected passing has left her family and friends devastated, but it has also brought out the tremendous love and support that she garnered throughout her life.
Caroline, affectionately known as Cromie, had just celebrated her 42nd birthday a week before her untimely death. She was not only a loving friend but also a funny, bubbly, and loyal companion to many. Her sudden loss overseas added an additional layer of heartache for her family, who must now navigate the daunting task of arranging a funeral and repatriating her remains.
In response to the challenging circumstances faced by Caroline’s family, Jenna, a close friend who had known Cromie for an incredible 30 years, took it upon herself to set up a GoFundMe page. The page’s description beautifully encapsulates the essence of Caroline’s personality and the outpouring of love from her community:
“Hi, my name is Jenna, and as most of you all know, our dearly beloved, funny, bubbly, loyal, and loving friend Caroline (known as Cromie) passed away suddenly on Sunday, 8th October abroad, just one week after celebrating her 42nd birthday. With Cromie passing away abroad, it just adds to the heartache for her family and multiplies the costs of arranging a funeral and bringing Caroline back home, among other expenses.”
Caroline’s popularity and the deep love she inspired in her community have sparked an overwhelming response to the fundraiser. Jenna continued, “With Caroline being so popular and well-loved throughout the community, I think it would be the right thing to do in organizing a fundraiser to give Charlotte and Colin that little extra financial support to help with all the costs.”
It’s abundantly clear that Cromie touched the lives of many during her lifetime. She was not just a friend; she was a legend and a source of joy to those fortunate enough to know her. Jenna’s heartfelt words are a testament to the profound impact that Caroline had on her friends and the larger community: “Cromie was a complete legend & hoot & has been my friend for 30 years along with so so many others. She will be missed sorely by everyone. Sleep tight, beautiful girl.”
The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust has also stepped in to assist Caroline Cromie’s family in bringing her remains back to Northern Ireland. This noble effort is yet another demonstration of the unity and compassion that has emerged during this difficult time.
As the GoFundMe campaign continues to receive generous contributions from friends, acquaintances, and well-wishers, it serves as a touching reminder of the power of community, love, and support during moments of profound loss. Caroline Cromie’s memory will undoubtedly live on in the hearts of those who knew her, and her legacy of kindness and camaraderie will continue to inspire others.
