Jeff and girls,
I so wanted to attend your celebration of Rae's life today. Rae was one of a kind.....strong willed, but gentle and loving. She was there so many times for me when the boys were young, a friend, an accomplice and a true supporter, protector and confident. Although I have only seen her a few times in the last few years, I think of her often. It was with great sadness that I heard of her passing. A truly unique individual who always put everyone else's need before hers.... the glue that held so much together. She will be missed by many. My thoughts are with all of you during this time of profound sadness. Love Janet
My Heart goes out to all the girls and Jeff I am so very very sorry for your loss....Rae made such an impact on my life that I'm sure she never even knew. I learnt so much from her about natural healing and alternative choices she was my go to person when my first son was born 17 years ago for what to do about different things. She gave me an old book about natural remedies that I used as my bible through out the years with both my boys. She gave me a diaper cream line as a gift when my first son was born and I call it miracle cream and ever since anyone I knew having a baby now always got the same thing from me....it might seem like a silly story but she made a difference in my life that I will never forget and it meant a great deal I'm sure there are hundreds of other people that feel just the same in the lives she touched. I am sending much heartfelt love to you all.
It's so hard to find words to reach out and express my condolences to you - Rae's family and those she held dear in her heart - in this time of sorrow. Peace and love to you all.
May you find strength in the memories of your strong, creative, passionate, intuitive and fearless mother, wife and friend. I hope you find comfort in knowing that Rae's beautiful spirit will live on in the glorious scents of her life's work and legacy.
Thank you Rae, for being the trail-blazer we needed to get aromatherapy and holistic therapies into the daily lives of others. Pioneers like yourself are few and far between. I'm honoured to have known you and worked with you. We will meet again! And to your family, please accept my sincere condolences on the untimely passing of your wife, mother, sister and daughter. Pllease know that she was, and always will be, considered a great healer and mentor to many. May time and love help heal your hearts.
Pat Antoniak, Delta,BC.

Dear Rae. The time I was so fortunate to have with you I have never forgotten. Your kindness, patience, warmth and humour. You changed my life, opened up a new perspective, and just gave so much. I remember your charming nature, and gentle way of teaching and guiding. Peace Be with You
We are sorry for your loss Jeff; with sympathy from the Mounkes Family.
Rae Dunphy was a great mentor, inspiration and business woman whom I loved to share stories and developments as our business grew. I will so deeply miss such a wonderful leader who was so passionate about aromatherapy and provided the top quality with great integrity that I have always trusted from the day I was introduced to her line of essential oils. I will continue to use and enjoy the essential oils with love honor, gratitude and memories of your wonderful dedication in this amazing field of alternative health. Thank you for your vision. May your loved ones be comforted as you journey on the other side...from one visionary to another farewell for now.
I will always remember all the wonderful gatherings that Rae & Jeff hosted at their cozy home, over the course of many years. Rae continues to be a warm, loving, bright light that will shine forever in all our hearts. Much love & light to Jeff and family...we're thinking of you.
Many thanks, Rae, for your contribtion to the aromatic world.
Thoughts and Prayers for you and your family.
Sending love to the family during this difficult time. I am grateful for having met Rae through her aromatherapy products and involvement in this industry. My condolences to all who knew Rae, she is full of light and love.
Rae of Light, thank you. As this news sunk in, I smelled rose. You continue to touch hearts...
I had not met Rae personally but talked to her many times on the telephone. She recently ordered me Rose Oil from Turkey and took the time to send pictures and explanations of where the oil came from. She was a bright spirit and with both of us loving essential oils we connected immediately. My thoughts are with the family and I hope your memories will be a gift.
Rae was a profound inspiration on so many levels, to so many. Her sage wisdom directed many of my life choices, and for that, I, and my children, are humbly grateful. Thank you Rae...thank you...
The Board and membership of BCAOA (British Columbia Alliance Of Aromatherapy) sends their condolences to all of Rae's families. Rae has left a great "Legacy" and was a mentor to so many. Her "Flame is burning brightly"
<3 I miss you Big Cheese.
Rae was one of those people who truly lit up a room and people's lives. Thank you Rae! It was truly a pleasure to know you.
Rae is a visionary, a graceful muse, a wise woman, Mama bear and soul sister. Into the light she goes. Heartfelt love to Jeff, Camilla, Laurel, Carmen and Laine. The loving care, timely support and protective circle they created showed that they learned every lesson Rae taught them about the aching beauty of being human.
Rae was simply the best, in so many ways. I will miss her very much, especially at family time at Christmas.
I have known Rae since the mid 1980s. She was such an important part of the natural health community in Calgary, and a significant educator about the amazing potential of essential oils. It is very hard to imagine that she has moved on to a whole new chapter. Here's to a job so well done Rae, may you be peaceful and joyful on your new journey. We will miss you.
I am so saddened to hear Rae's passing, she will be missed. I always enjoyed her visits to the store, and the great conversations we had. I feel blessed to have known her, she made the world a better place. Hugs to your family, I am so sorry for your loss. Katja Kohlhammer
Rae will be missed by everyone. My prayers go to her legacy, her family. I always felt welcomed by Rae because her heart and home were open to everyone that crossed her path. I feel lucky to have known her at all.
Laine and family, We are very sorry for your loss. Love from Mark and Bev
I am a long time friend of Rae's sister Les. Although my path only crossed with Rae's a dozen times so , each time was always full of such light and humour. I know her sense of fun will be alive in all of you her family and I hope its' presence helps a little in bearing your grief. Love, robin
Thoughts and prayers with Rae's family who will miss her daily presence in their lives - and gratitude for having been touched, many times, by Rae's love and grace.
And admiration for her courage and her light demonstrated in her living and her crossing over.
We are missing you so much, Rae. And always will. Luke and I sending our deepest sympathies to Jeff, Camilla, Laurel, Carmen, Laine, and all the rest of the beloved family.
I met Rae at the Esthetique International Spa Show in Toronto. I will remember her as a Ray of Sunshine as she had such a lovely presence and lit up the booth with her radiant smile and graced everyone with her profound wisdom. She will be sadly missed at the show.
we feel the pain of loosing a loving friend ,,and she will always be with us ,,
Deeply sorry for your loss - our loss - may the beautiful scents Rae loved so dearly comfort our hearts and heal our lives.
My heart goes out to Laine and her family. My deepest condolences.
Rae was so easy to love. I will miss her sweet face. I feel her legacy is that ease of a loving nature and a love of nature that she lived. Thank you Rae.

Dear Rae's family
I am so honored I was able to work along side of Rae for the past 10 years. She has been my dear friend and teacher. As her designer, I am most proud of the work we did together. She encouraged my creativity and taught me to be a better entrepreneur.
