Thank you for words of kindness

Kara and I want to thank you for your kind words of condolences during this very difficult time.   We are deeply touched by your own stories of loss, and we appreciate you sharing them with us.

  1. Dear Dennis and Kara,

    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your baby.
    I recently loss my baby girl back in September and know the pain you both are going through.
    Just know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.



  2. Dear Dennis and Kara, I was so sorry to hear of your loss and will remember you in prayer. You and Kara will go on to love and care for your daughter with all your heart. These are the best of times as she grows and takes in the world around her and becomes a young lady to make you proud as my son does me. –Barb–


  3. Dennis and Kara – I am very sorry for your tremendous loss. I have been in the same situation as the two of you are in and I know how heartbroken you must be. Take comfort in knowing that you now have a guardian angel looking over you and your prescious daughter. Kara – heard you were going back to work on monday and just wanted to wish you the best of luck. My first day back to work was very hard and many tears were shed. Just wanted to let you know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers and we will be supporting you from a distance on monday as well as the days to follow.


  4. Dennis and Kara,

    Again, I’m sorry for your loss. Remember all of the viewers who support you Monday when you return. I’ll be watching Better CT on Monday; can’t wait to see you Kara, and Dennis on the evening news.

    God bless and enjoy your time off with your family.

  5. Dennis, Kara, and family –

    I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your baby. My husband and I suffered a first trimester loss in 2006. Explaining what happened to our 5 year old son even though we ourselves did not know why this happened was one of the most difficult things we have ever done.

    However, my most difficult challenge was returning to work. I am a post partum nurse at the Family Birthing Center at Manchester Hospital. The first few weeks were filled with tears and heartache, but through shear luck I ran into a passage the read “every baby has a purpose no matter how long they are here with us.” For everyone the purpose is different, but for me it has become my mission to help other women who have experienced infant loss.

    The hospital has recently given me permission to begin planning a butterfly garden which I have given the name Wings. It will be a place where people who have lost a baby can come and remember their baby. We are hoping to have a ceremony once a year to support each other and bring hope to our lives. Your love for one another and family will help you through this difficult time.

    As we begin planting next year I will keep your family in my thoughts and as we plan our service we will include your baby in our remembrance list. Your baby and the love you shared early on will always be in your hearts.

    Take as much time as you need as a family to begin to heal during this difficult time.

    With deepest sympathy

  7. Dennis and Kara,

    We were saddened to hear of your loss. We experienced a similar loss 20 weeks into our pregnancy in late March. Time, love, and faith really help a great deal. There are ups and downs along the way, but know that you will find things to smile about and give you hope.

    Warm Regards,

    Jen and Jay J.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I too, lost a baby at 10 weeks. What got me through was my faith in God and my family. You are both people of Faith and also strong families. Stay strong and love each other and your daughter. I will say a special prayer for you.


  10. Kara and Dennis, I just found out about your loss and am terribly sorry. I know you both were so happy at the prospect of another child. My husband and I too know the pain you are going through as we have lost 2. It is really important that you both keep the communication open and talk to each other, Dennis you may not have physically gone through what Kara has, but have both lost so much. Your love and faith will help you through it. Nothing anyone can say can really help, but their thoughts are truly meant well. With time the pain does subside, but you never forget. It has been 6 and 7 years for us and there are times when I do think about it, it does make me sad like now, but they do pass.
    My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the both of you and your families.
    Take care.


  11. Kara and Dennis-
    Accept my sympathy at this time. I too suffered an unexpected loss. I was almost 23 weeks. The following has helped me through my journey.

    Greater are our joys
    Deeper is our love
    Fuller is our life
    Because you spent a moment with us

  12. Kara and Dennis, I just want to say how sorry I was to hear of your loss. I too have lost 2, 6 and 7 years ago. Yes it is true, when people say time does heal, but you will never forget, it just gets easier to accept. Be thankful for your beautiful daughter. The main thing is to talk to each other and be there for each other. Don’t try to do it on your own, communication is big. You will get sad when you hear about things like this, but it does pass. My thoughts and prayers are with you.


  13. I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. My husband and I have always talked about how we wanted a a big family – so, we have a 28 month old & a 16 month old. Needless to say, we were thrilled to find out this past March that we were pregnant again. Well, the bad new came when I just knew in my heart that something was wrong. No sooner had we found out that we were pregnant, did we learn that we had miscarried. The frustrating part is that they couldn’t tell us what happened. There was no medical explination for it. Well, I’m excited to say that I was medically cleared and we are now pregnant – and from all reports, everything is ok. I just wanted to share my story with you because I know how much it hurts to lose something that you love from the moment you find out it’s real. Once I had accepted what had happened and started to heal, I was able to start thinking about the future. I wish the same for you and if the day comes when you decide that you want to try again – I wish you nothing but all the best!
    Much love~
