It is with deep regret that we write to inform you that Caroline Thompson passed away on Wednesday 8th February 2006. She had bravely fought cancer for several years, until she finally succumbed. Despite her illness she continued to work tirelessly for what she believed in. We still hope to get her final paper "The Chaotic Ball" published posthumously and we will keep her website open for others to read. She will be missed greatly by her husband John, and her children Daniel and Chloe.
