I still remember her getting engaged at Disney World. I am sure all of her family misses her a lot. I think of her and of you often, Carolyn. Keep going forward - even though it has to be very hard.

I worked with Karin at Pillsbury and knew her as a bright and talented attorney. What I remember most about Karin, however, is that no matter how busy she was, she would always take time to stop and say hello. She was a kind, warm and genuine soul, and she always willing to lend a hand. I am deeply saddened to learn of her passing.

Mark,

I am profoundly sorry to learn of Karin's passing. I learned of Karin's story from her friend Kate who reached out to our organization. I suffered AFE during the delivery of my son in 2008 and started an organization to offer support to families that have been affected and devastated by AFE. We would like to connect with you to see how we can best support you and your sons. We'd also like to connect you to another father in Baltimore (also a Penn State Grad) who works for SAIC in VA. He lost his wife, Teresa to AFE and would love to offer you his support, as he truly understands what you have been faced with. Again, we are here to support you when the time is appropriate.

With heartfelt condolences,
Miranda and The AFE Foundation

My thoughts and prayers are with Karin's family. I went to law school with Karin. We did not keep in touch after graduating but I clearly remember her generosity of spirit and enthusiasm for life. She was a wonderfully down to earth person. I hope and expect that her children will live with the same optimism that Karin always displayed.

I worked with Karin at Shaw Pittman and hadn't seen or talked to Karin for several years but remember her as a warm, sincere and caring individual. I knew her before she became a mom but I can't imagine her being anything less than an amazing mother. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Although I never got the privilege of meeting Karin face to face I considered her a true friend. Over the years she offered support and thoughtful advice to so many on the trach forum, myself included. I will forever miss reading what Karin would have had to say. The love she had for Mark, Alex, Brycen and the rest of her family was clear to all. Her time here on earth was not long enough. It is such a tragedy. She will be missed by so many. - Ainsley's Mom

Mark, we were so sad to hear of Karin's passing. Karin and I practiced together at Pillsbury, and we remained in touch after I left the firm. Everyone's comments are so spot-on; she was a vibrant, intelligent, generous friend who took care of others. We had fun seeing you at Dunn Loring Woods last summer; my children enjoyed playing with Alex. Alex was very clearly the light of Karin's life, as I know Bryce would be as well. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Dear Kincaid family: I am so sorry for your loss. I met Karin last year through our sons' preschool and from the very first day found her to be a wonderful, kind, loving lady and friend. She was always there to help me and my son in several different (& difficult) situations and was first one to offer a helping hand and loving advice. Mark, may God bless you and give you strength to raise two beautiful sons you have. Alex, and Brycen always know that your mom loved you very very much and you made her very happy.

Although I never knew your family personally I had made a small connection with Karin concerning our son's. She was so kind and willing to share. My heart goes out to Mark, Alex, Brycen, and the family as you remember Karin and the wonderful life she lived. Karin made a huge impact on many mother's lives who were going through challenging times or needed some advice as they are caring for children with special needs. She will never be forgotten.

Dear Kincaid and Kysilka Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I am a friend of Marks' brother Shawn and have come to know your families through him. Although only meeting Karin, Mark and Alex one time and talking to Karins' Mom Carolyn via email, it felt like I had known you all my life. My thoughts and prayers are with both families as you go through this very difficult time. Alex and Brycen know your Mommy is always there and looking down on both of you with so much love.

I only knew Karin in a online sense though the trachestomy boards but she was always such a bright and vibrant soul who came to the boards with a wealth of information she was willing to share. I'm so very sorry for your loss, it is very clear though Karins posts alone just how much she adored her family

Mark, Alex and Brycen -- I only came to know Karin in the last year, since Alex joined our preschool. She stood out as someone willing to step up and help where she could; to always offer an insight and to always be there for those that needed her. She will be missed and remembered for her kindness and caring.

Dear Kincaid & Kysilka Family-

Please know Karin was a considerate part of our trach parent family, she was always so kind to everyone, very generous with her knowledge and a very intelligent woman. She always reached out to those in need and she will be missed, deeply, by all of us. The loss of Karin has certainly shook our community.

Karin will forever be missed by so many. Much love to you all, especially to her beautiful boys, Alex and Brycen, who meant all the world to their mother.

Mark: I came to know your wife through collaborating in a worldwide effort to bring another family of a child with a trach home from an area of disaster. Her skills in establishing & extending networks were strengths that contributed to the success of our efforts. I knew her also as a loving mother to Alex & know there is no one who will miss her more than you & your 2 boys. Hoping for peace in your hearts and that one day your memories of her will be filled with more joy than pain. She will be missed by us all.

Oh Karin, you are going to be missed so much. You were a good friend to many.

Alex and Brycen, please always know how much your mama loved you. She is your biggest fan and is just cheering you on from afar now.

Mark, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife as you go on to raise the loves you both made.

I'm comforted that her last memory made was giving birth to Brycen. She wanted nothing more than to have him and was so elated in his arrival.
