A Saskatchewan woman who invited people to send photographs of sunsets to pay tribute to a family of four who died in a car crash this year is staggered by the response.
She was inspired by a Facebook post Van De Vorst made before his death about having as many people as possible take a picture of a sunset.
Lawrence turned to Facebook and local media, inviting people to take pictures of sunsets over the weekend.
She says people who knew Van De Vorst helped spread the word and there was a snowball effect.
She says she expected a few dozen responses but ended up with nearly 500, including submissions from Germany, the Netherlands and Barbados.
Lawrence says she is now trying to figure out the best way to present the flood of images on a Facebook tribute page.
