The Kern Family

on behalf of Edmond Kern
 HARWINTON, CT


On Sunday, October 23rd, my beautiful niece was killed in a horrific motorcycle accident.  The driver crossed over the yellow line striking five bikes and injuring several riders.  Unfortunately, our loving Aislinn did not survive leaving behind three beautiful daughters.  Her husband Eddy was also badly injured and has a long road of recovery ahead.
In a matter of  seconds our lives have been changed forever. The carelessness of one person has ripped our family to pieces. We will all need to learn how to mange each day without our daughter, mother, wife, sister, niece, cousin, and best friend. 
Eddy will now be given the task of raising these three girls alone. 
Your donations will assist Eddy with funeral expenses, and to help with providing care for the girls.
Gabby, the youngest daughter, has a form of dwarfism and will also require special needs.

Thank you all very much.

Dan Bishop...you either don't live in CT or you live under a rock, because this tragic story is all over the news. And you clearly don't know how expensive it is to 1. Plan a funeral, 2. Pay the hospital bills for her husband that was also critically injured in the tragedy, or 3. Raise three little girls on a single income! Ihope the raise $500,000! Do a little research before you comment!

Great response Kristy Kean Hebb! My daughter Britta and Aislinn were best buddies all through grammar and high school. They would often enjoy sleepovers, play dates, and family functions together. As a father of two beautiful young women I am heartbroken over this senseless tragedy. I call upon my Beacon Falls friends and neighbors to step up and remember this Beacon Falls girl by donating what you can. We can never forget Aislinn.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Ed, his girls and immediate family. I wish Ed a speedy recovery. I lost my step mother several months ago and it took my father many surgeries and over a month later for him to get home. Ed, ever since middle school ive known you as a sweet, kind, guy. Please know I will continue as your sister through God to pray for strength as you go through this unbearable time. With Love, Jessica Campanelli

I unfortunately can't give any money as I'm too young but, I have to say this gave me goosebumps and tears are flowing from my eyes. She was such a beautiful, young mother and my heart aches for her three young children who will have to live on without her! Prayers to the father that he has a healthy, sppedg recovery and for the family and friends and most of all her daughters who are going through this hard time. She's watching over you! :'(

It is hard to raise 3 daughters by one. Please stay strong and love the daughters. It is also hard for them to lose a mother. I hope I could help you more.
