In honor and memory of Caroline, we have set up the Caroline Kramer Faust Foundation that will be used to fund causes that Caroline loved (nature, animals, art and all things creative, school ).  We ask that you contribute to her fund in lieu of flowers or other gifts. Caroline touched so many lives in her short time here, so please share your stories. Thank you for all the love and support you have shown us and Caroline and for helping us further Caroline's interests for her.



We appreciate the Hudson Community Foundation (HCF)'s help in setting up the Caroline Kramer Faust Foundation.  In order to receive a donation letter from HCF, a 501(c)(3), please either donate directly to the Caroline Kramer Faust Foundation
through the foundation webpage below or mail a check directly to the foundation at the address provided here.  Checks can be made out to the Hudson Community Foundation with a note that it is for the benefit of (FBO) Caroline Kramer Faust Foundation.  Donations through GoFundMe do not receive such a letter, if you would like one.


You can find the Caroline Kramer Faust Foundation under the "Fund Name" drop-down menu.

Compassionate Friends is having a worldwide candle lighting tonight at 7PM (your local time zone).

I am lighting candles for Caroline, Emery (Cameron's daughter), Banner (Clinton's son), Chrystie (Lisa's daughter) and Paige (Kristin's niece).


My thoughts go out to anyone who has lost a child too soon.

Thanks to the kind friends who sent us the little angels and to Katherine (aka Nana) for inspiring me to make a memorial (ok...hers is pretty amazing).

We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support for Caroline and our family. When your child is only eight, it seems like every day revolves around their needs and schedule. It is hard to describe the void that is left in our hearts and in our home without Caroline. Losing your child is an indescribable pain that I hope no one experiences.

Dealing with grief, in many ways, is a solitary, personal road. You don’t know how long it is. Whether it will be all uphill, or there are flat spots to catch your breath. Whether you will even make it to the end, and what it means if you do. If you walk with others, sometimes they are done before you, but you need to keep going.

For whatever reason, at least for us, each time we do something for Caroline, it helps keep us connected to her and that brings happiness. Our days were filled with shaping her life… working on homework, reading bedtime stories, driving her to horseback riding, taking her on family trips or walks through the woods. Time spent with people, helping continue her legacy, has made each day we wake up a little more purposeful and hopeful.

We have not been able to share all of those experiences with you, but we are working on a website to do that.

Thank you again for all the kindness and generosity you have and continue to show us.

Thank you to everyone who has been so kind to me, Michael, the boys, our parents, all our extended family and friends who are like family since our beautiful Caroline has passed. We appreciate all that you have done for us and for allowing us to continue to sing Caroline's song for her through her foundation. It means everything, truly.

We have worked hard with Amy at the Hudson Community Foundation (HCF) to get Caroline's foundation established, and it is finally completed.


While you can still donate through the GoFundMe site, we would prefer that you donate directly through HCF either online or via mailed check so we can send you a donation letter from the foundation. You can find the Caroline Kramer Faust Foundation under the "Fund Name" drop-down menu.

More updates to come....

With much love and gratitude,
The Faust Family
