HEMSING – Carson Matthew

March 23, 1983 – June 4, 2011

Sadly, on Saturday, June 4, 2011, Carson passed away suddenly, after only twenty-eight great years. He was a good friend to all who knew him and always had a smile on his face.

He enjoyed travelling; whether it was with family or friends, he cherished those moments.

He is also survived by grandparents Bill and Ada Hancock; aunts and uncles Sherry and Jack Lane, Phyllis and Marinus Smit, Gordon and Linda Adams, Jerry and Elizabeth Hemsing, Diane and Russ Hemsing, Pam Hemsing, Brad and Carla Hemsing and numerous cousins. Carson was predeceased by his father Kelvin.

    Our family wishes to send our deepest feelings of sympathy for you and your family, Sandy and Danielle, on the passing of Carson. Michael and Philip, will miss Carson. Good friends for such a long time and from a very young age. Carson will be remembered by everyone in our family. When I think of Carson, I will always see his smiling face. Carson emerged from his teenage years into a very nice, polite and caring young man. He was always excited and proud when good things happened to his friends. Carson was eager to help his friends when he could. He was there to lift their spirits when they were sad. Carson’s passing will leave a void in each and every life that he touched, but their memories will be there, in their hearts and their minds, for their lifetimes.

    I met Carson in 1988 on a jobsite with his father Kelvin. Over the years I’ve always felt like I was part of the Hemsing family. Carson was always cheerful and fun to be around. My heart is sad for his mother Sandy and sister Danielle. I pray to the Lord to help carry them through these tough times.

    When tomorrow starts without me,
    And I’m not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    all filled with tears for me,
    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn’t get to say.
    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    and each time that you think of me,
    I know you’ll miss me too.
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand,
    And said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I’d have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.
    But as I turned to walk away,
    A tear fell from my eye
    For all my life, I’d always thought,
    I didn’t want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    So much left yet to do,
    It seemed almost impossible,
    That I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays
    The good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    and all the fun we had
    If I could re-live yesterday
    Just even for a while,
    I’d say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.
    But then I fully realized,
    That this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories,
    would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    My heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked through heaven’s gates,
    I felt so much at home
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From His great golden throne.
    He said, “This is eternity,
    And all I’ve promised you.”
    Today your life on earth is past,
    But here life starts anew
    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day’s the same way
    There’s no longing for the past.
    You have been so faithful,
    So trusting and so true.
    Though there were times
    You did some things
    You knew you shouldn’t do.
    But you have been forgiven
    And now at last you’re free.
    So won’t you come and take my hand
    And share my life with me?
    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don’t think we’re far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I’m right here, in your heart.

    Carson you will always be in our hearts.

  13. Paul van Kampen :

    Sandy and Danielle,

    As you know, Carson was my best friend for a very long time. We both shaped each others childhoods in many ways. I have a million wonderful memories attached to Carson, and I feel that I can truly appreciate the tremendous loss that you are now going through.

    I knew him as a bright, funny, adventurous and loving kid, and from what I’ve read, he kept those attributes into his adulthood.

    I think back on some of the wonderful memories; trick-or-treating, building the shed in the back yard, our trips to fish creek, shoveling walks or raking leaves around the neighborhood for cash, building bikes… I could go on forever. We had such a great time!

    For what it’s worth, Carson made an enormous impression on me, and I will never forget the amazing friendship we had.

    I want to wish you the very best through this difficult time. Carson was a wonderful person, and will be greatly missed.


    Paul van Kampen

    Sandy, Danielle, and Jaden: We are so saddened by Carson’s passing. He was more than a nephew. Uncle Brad worked with him on many job sites. Auntie Carla will remember how much he liked her baking that she sent to the job sites. He always liked the extra special package she would send for him. Uncle Brad remembers that no matter what the job, Carson would do it with a smile. He will be missed dearly, but always remembered.
