Remembering Carol Cafferty

Jack Cafferty isn't here today for the Cafferty File because of some tragic news.

His wife of 35 years, Carol, passed away unexpectedly this morning. Carol was everything to Jack. The dedication of his book reads, "for Carol, my wife, my life."

Jack wrote about how she was the inspiration for him to get sober and straighten up his life: "In all the years that we've been married, she has always brought to the table her unshakable grounding in something a lot more real than being on television or being recognized in the corner drugstore. She has been my rock, having done a magnificent job of keeping me from getting full of helium and drifting off the surface of the earth... She was all the incentive I needed to make painful but transforming changes – to get sober and stop smoking. I knew that I'd lose her if I didn't. She's an amazing woman who simply wasn't worth losing."

One story Jack loves to tell is how he and Carol met – when he was a local news anchor in Kansas City. They started to meet regularly for a quick meal between his shows and became good friends. Whenever Jack had to leave, his exit line was "We'd better wrap this up. Got to get back to the station." One night Carol finally asked, "What kind of a gas station do you work at? You're always wearing a tie."

Jack explained it was a television station. He loved the fact that she had no clue and couldn't care less that he had been on air there every night for four years. He later described that as one of his life's "twenty-four-carat moments" that made his heart soar. He said to himself then that he might marry her because "it can't get any more honest and pure than that."

Our deepest sympathies go out to Jack and to their two daughters, Leslie and Leigh. Our thoughts are also with Jack's other two daughters, Julie and Jill, and his grandchildren.

Carol was an animal lover. If you'd like to make a donation in her memory, the family asks you give to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. You can contribute at aspca.org.

    No matter how you may feel about Jack's style, or his politics, or his opinions, or anything else about him, no one should lose a loved one at all, let alone with the suddenness that Jack lost his wife.

    My sincerest sympathies.

    Jack;

    I have never submitted a comment even though I always feel the urge and need depending upon the importance of the issue. Nothing you have ever spoke about on air has been so relevant to your loss today. I have such a lady as you describe your wife in your book. My world would end without her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sincerely-Greg

    Jack:

    We just heard the news regarding the sudden passing of your wife Carol.

    We didn't know her and we know you only from your writing and CNN reporting. However, we agree with so much of what you say that you might as well be part of our family. We will be making a donation to the ASPCA in her memory.

    We are sorry for your loss and pray that you will have the strength to get through this horrible time.

  83. Tina Steimle

    Dear Jack,

    Oh, how sorry I am for your terrible loss. In times like these words are insufficient, but may the wonderful memories of your great love bring you equally great comfort. I heard that the late Tim Russert once asked a friend who had just experienced a great loss, would you have rather had him for a short period of time, or not at all? The answer of course is always the same, when confronted with this painful choice. we would all rather have the people we love even for a short period of time because they transform our lives and bring us incredible happiness. They anchor us in the best way possible. But the pain when they leave us must be unbereable.

    I knew Jack that you must've had someone strong and wonderful behind you because in the "Cafferty files,"you always act confident and secure in who you are without caring whether you score points with the "big shots" or not. That's because you knew that you had the biggest shot possible at home. And she loved you.

    God bless you, friend. I am sorry.

    35 years is a long time to have a relationship, and I can only imagine the loss you must feel at this time. We are never prepared for these things in life no matter how strong we are , and I can only hope you the best during this time. Your TV family awaits your return. I'm real sorry for your loss.

    Jack, I'm sorry to hear about your wife. My prayers and sympathy goes out to you and your family. I love your blog and try to get on as much as possible. But I was sorry to hear about your wife. She made you strong before so take what she gave you (which was love, understanding, and compation) keep this in your heart and she will also be there to recieve your love. You will overcome this too because she made you strong to withstand anything. You got to be strong for the children and I believe that you got what it takes to keep them in perfect peace.

    Please accept my sincerest and heartfelt sympathy on your incredulous loss. I will ask God to keep you safe and hold your hands as walk alone during these very difficult times.

    Jack, I just read on a blog that your beloved wife Carol untimely died a sudden death.
    (Don't know how to reach out to you other than to your blog from Germany, where I'm right now.)

    I really know how you feel and suffer from this incredible loss because my (second) wife untimely and unexpectantly died all of a sudden on a Sunday afternoon in her office, just two years ago, having been a German Local National (Police Liaison Specialist) for the USArmy Military Police for more than 30 years of US Government Service. So I know what I'm talking about.

    This is such a tremendous loss, turning everything upside down from one second to the next – and leaving Nothing as it used to be. Just horrible.

    I must admit I'm not good at prayers. But my heart, from the very bottom of it, goes out to you.
    I hope and dearly wish you'll be strong enough to mentally and physically 'survive' this tragedy – as I think (not yet being quite sure of a final result) I so far, somehow, managed to do.

    Once again, my heart goes out to you.
    And I wish you strength to overcome. Carol, your beloved late wife, would want it that way.

    Embracing you in my thoughts.
    Rudi from Florida
    (A Permanent Resident in the US of German origin)

    I am so sorry. My Son, Grandchildren, and I have just experienced a loss similiar to yours, his wife, mother and daughter-in-law.....too soon and too young.

    Please know that "Jesus is giving her a hug"...that is what my daughter-in-law wanted when she left us.....My son remarked that she was touring heaven....I know that is probably what your wife is doing also.

    You are in my thoughts.

    Your book is on my "to read" list Jack; but I have been swamped, so I didn't know the story of how you met your wife. That story sounds so YOU.

    Jack – I am so sorry to hear of your Carol's sudden passing today. My thoughts and condolences to you and your family at this sad time. She must have been the one who made you into the lovable curmudgeon that you are. When I lost my 9 year old daughter in a car accident long, long ago, I found that in her passing, she had turned me into the compassionate teacher I had never been before that tragedy. I hope that you will find comfort from the many people who are thinking of you today.

    Know that so very many of us value you a great, great deal. Come back to us as soon as you are able! (besides, we badly need your wisdom re: Sarah Palin)!

    Jack and Family,

    It is with such deep sorrow to express how I've been touched by the sudden passing of your dear wife. May the peace of God abide with you and the family and may His grace comfort you. You will find the strenght to continue to do the great job you've ably carried out at CNN. I'm glad that you have been blessed with such a loving wife and a pillar many a man would pray to have in a woman. I've been equally blessed by God to have a wife like yours for 30 years. She's kind and loving. I must confess that I would not be much today if I had married another woman. She supports me more than I can ask for in time of plenty or drought.
    You know Jack, when the demons in our world preside over the spoils of wars and greed, the mostly young people and many responsible adults who listen to your progressive statements would remember and learn that you've been touched by an angle in your life. You believe that America can be better. Much love to you from me and family.

    I am disturbed about repeatedly hearing of McCain's P.O.W. experience as though it somehow makes him more patriotic than Obama. Obama's quiet service to the poor is no less heroic than McCain's military service. It is, in fact, as much a sacrifice to give up a lucrative career to help the poor as it is to lie in a prison halfway around the world. I am not belittling McCain's service, but I am tired of him and his machine belittling Obama's. The thing with McCain's torture experience is that it makes people emotional...flag-waving emotional. But all Americans should equally respect Obama's decision to get down in the ditches to help people in a poor community...when there were no cameras around and no hopes of receiving a medal or "hero" title. Barak Obama's service to his country is at least as patriotic as McCain's.

    I am from Toronto Canada and watch you every day. I just heard Wolf make the announcement of the passing of your wife Carol. I was already very sad today, as it is the anniversary of my best friend's death and then to hear of your wife's passing just broke my heart for you.

    The only insight I can give you, even though it will not be understandable right now for you, but time is the only healer in the loss of the love of your life. When it first happens you cry every day every minute. This lasts for months, and your daily thoughts of the love one that is gone. But as months, years, go by the crying, the pain, the thoughts become easier to deal with. But you can never forget that love of your life. Just as I shed a tear for the loss of my love I shed a tear for the loss of your love.

    Be strong Jack, find your strength within yourself, lean on your children and friends, and allow yourself to grieve.

    My sympathies to you and your family and your wife's family for the loss of your loved one. May she rest in peace and be in a better place than here.

    Regards, Luba

    You definitely deserve this community that cares. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughters especially. I do know how hard it is to lose your mother at a young age and to see my father lose his wife after far too short of time together.
    May prayers, love and peace be in your hearts and minds.

    Jack:
    I offer you my most heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your wife. I didn't know her Jack but over the years I have really grown to love you. You remind me so much of my late "no nonsense" father. I wouldn't even watch the Situation Room if you were not on it Jack. I so look forward to your questions and especially when you're in the pit debating the political pundits of the day. On behalf of my entire family I send my deepest condolences to you and your family. We discuss you all the time as if you were part of our family. We always ask what did Jack say today". God bless each of you during this difficult time. jaid

    Dearest Mr. Cafferty,

    I'm so sadden to hear of your great lost. Had it not been for the election season(s), I would not have met you. Once I began listening to you, you became the main focus of my interest in CNN.

    That's because we (my family, and relatives) seen a man (you, Jack) that apprears to have great moral character, integrity, honesty, fairness and equality. Jack, I know Ms. Cafferty was madly in love with you.

    Really I don't know what to say to ease your heartache Jack except that you're in our hearts and prayers and please remember that our Father can help you through this. Please call on him, and if you have already; continue calling on Him. This is a time he can carry you and your family. In the name of our Lord & Saviour, Christ Jesus, may you and your girls continue to be bless.

    Dear Jack,

    I am so sorry you have lost the love of your life. No one knows your pain.

    When I lost my very best friend (not the same as losing a wife) the one thought that finally helped was to remember I was so blessed to have known my friend for the time I did than to not have known him at all.

    I'm sure for every tear there's a bucket of memories to help keep Carol's love and life alive in your heart. May you find the strength in her memory.

    My best,

    Jack you had someone so special as I read this blog the words of Eugene Peterson came to my heart.

    Most of the time, what we need to help us through the struggles in our lives is not the advice of an expert but the wisdom of a friend.

    Dear Jack,
    I was ready to say some very angry words to you about your digs at the Republican Party. However after reading about your wife's passing, I knew this was not the time.
    Anger and arguements should not enter into a persons time of distress. I pray that you will find a peace in your wife Carol's passing.
    Everything happens for a reason, and just know that God wanted her Home now.
    I became a widow 10 years ago, after 45 years of marriage. I can't even say I feel your pain. I have not walked in your shoes. I walked in my own. Every marriage has a special story and I know that yours is special. May God Bless you and may He bring you a peace that passeth all understanding.
    God Bless You!

    I applaud and respect Sarah Palin's ambition and achievements. However, I do not believe that our "desired standards" should be relaxed at our highest level. She is in the throes of a personal family crisis that should NOT be played out publicly We are all aware that teenage pregnancy is a problem. But I find it amazing that the most unlikely folks suddenly thinks out-of-wedlock sex/pregnancy is fine and that marriage for an uneducated 17 year old is to be commended. What a standard of aspiration for all young girls of America and around the world! I cannot imagine how this "hockey mom" would think that this is an admirable image (and image does matter) and I cannot imagine the added horror her daughter is experiencing. In his act of frenzied desparation, John McCain disregarded moral implication and perception.

    I'm not a religious person, but the words written of your loss reminded me of this old song:

    'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
    'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
    When true simplicity is gain'd,
    To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
    To turn, turn will be our delight,
    Till by turning, turning we come round right.

    Best wishes and condolences to you and your family. Karen.

    P.O.W maccain a failed operation cannot be a war hero, real war hero take action even when they failed in a life and death situation, thats the way it is, because you have to make that sacrifice. Not a looser like maccain thats been capture in mission that he may cause himself P.O.W. HAH HAH!!!

    I hope you don't censor this one.
    Mr. Cafferty,
    I disagree with you on just about everything politically but it is apparent from what I read above we would agree on the issue of the importance of a good wife.
    I nearly lost mine last year and I know if I had it would have devasted me. I hope and pray that you can find the strength to make it through this. I am sure the women you speak of would want that.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you. One day at a time.

    No one can express a sentiment that truly helps ease the pain when one has lost their life partner. The feeling of loss is as deep as the relationship that was formed with love, commitment, and shared joy over 35 years. The gift of Carol to you is one of God's greatest blessings and only He can bring comfort with his enduring love and presence. May God be close to you and your family.

    Mrs. Cafferty must have been a wonderful person. It is evident in the fact that she married a wonderful man -"YOU" !!!

    I know you will miss her and always cherish memories of your life together. May you find peace by always being thankful that "the God
    of your heart" allowed Carol to be your love, friend, companion and
    wife in this life's journey.

    Through the life that you live and all that you continue to contribute towards peace and understanding -- we will ALL continue to remember Carol - as her "light" will be reflected through you.

    Dear Mr. Cafferty:

    My deepest condolences on the passing of your wife. I lost my husband Aug. of 2007 been married for 28 years. There are no words to express the feeling and sadness we go through each and every day. Memories are wonderful and I force myself to remember the goods times rather than the the sadness of his passing. It is very difficult when you lose a spouse, it is as if you lose yourself. I pray that the days, months and years with the help of your children & grandchilden will comfort you.

    With our prayers Carol has seen the Lord.

    Sincerely,

    There are no words at such a time....only feelings. You have come to be such an important part of every week day...some days I wonder what I would do without you. You simply add a bright piece of sunshine...even when you feel "grouchy" and I have come to value and respect you, your opinions, the very unique view...that is only you. You say it like you see it...and I admire you for that.
    I want you to know that you will be in my prayers, along with your family. I believe that you will be upheld...by an entire nation, for you have great worth and are much loved.

    A man is measured by those who would grieve with him. Today thousands of people are grieving with you. Your wife was a very smart lady to have married such a good man. I'm sure she was very proud to be Mrs. Cafferty.

    I hope that you find the strength to get back to work soon. Our country needs you as you are one of the few remaing voices of sanity on cable TV news.

  332. Jackie in Dallas

    Jack:
    There is nothing anyone can say to help ease the pain of losing someone you love...and loved as long as you did Carol. I think that the majority of those of us who follow your blogs, no matter what our personal beliefs and politics, would love to be able to take just the smallest amount of the pain away - but there is no way we can. Hopefully, just the sheer numbers of people responding will help, in a small way, remind you that there are many others who care about you.

    You are in our thoughts, our prayers, and our hopes that you can make it throught this dark night of your soul. As John Donne once wrote:
    --------------------------–
    DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
    Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
    For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
    Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
    ....
    Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
    And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
    And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
    And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
    One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
    And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.
    -------------------------------
    Bless you and keep you and your children safe.

    Jack, I like your show...I'm a 53 year old white republican and since viewing you and Lou Dobbs...I've become independent – – – But, I'm going to vote for Obama-Biden because I believe Obama is telling the truth about CHANGE that will unite all Americans. I used to make over 100,000 3 years ago – but after batteling Breast Cancer and Bone Cancer I have nothing left after 35 years of work and I'm one of the luckier ones in life!!!

    I was married 22 years...I know what loss is. My heart goes out to you and your family...I'm so sorry for the loss of your wife and friend!!!
    Please come back soon and help us get someone elected that cares about all of us! Thank You. God Bless You Always!

    Dear Jack Cafferty,
    My name is Irene Jagla and I am writing on behalf of my family–my mother, Barbara; my father, Chris; and my 16 year old brother, Alex.
    The Jagla household just hasn't been the same without you these past couple of days. I live in Washington D.C. now, but I call my family in Round Lake, Illinois, almost everyday and for the past few days there has been a lot of complaining, and not just about the RNC. The family has been wondering, "Where is Cafferty? Why isn't he reading emails and delivering poignant political commentary?" Today we found out that your wife passed away and we just want you to know that we miss you and are keeping you and your family in our prayers. We know that your wife meant a lot to you and that you need time to grieve and heal. But just know that when you get back in front of the cameras, we will be on the other side of lens, in rapt attention, waiting for more of your wit and wisdom to guide us through a sometimes chaotic, confusing world.
    Thank you! and God bless
    –The Jagla Family

    God Bless You and Your Family

    Jack,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I lost my second husband
    9 years ago. I feel your pain. All things heal in time. I have just
    recently remarried and I feel truly blessed. Just take things a day
    at a time.

    Mr. Cafferty,

    I've never written a comment before, but I've always been a big fan of yours while watching the Situation Room. I just wanted to express my deepest sympathies to you in this awful time. My girlfriend and I are so sorry for your loss and will keep you and your family in our thoughts. Please take care.

    Jack,

    I disagree with you politics 85% of the time and I was going to write a snide, petty comment about some politcal development. Not now. Very sorry to hear of your loss.

    You're the best, Jack. Your work helps inform everyone who sees it. My deep sympathy and best wishes for you and your family. I hope to see the Cafferty File resume soon.

    Jack,

    I am heartbroken for you and your family. I read the story of how you and Carol met and have listened to you speak of her over the years. Your love for her and your girls always shined through. We grieve with you during this time. I hope that the love of your faithful blog family lifts you up just a little during this difficult time.

    Jack,

    I am so very sorry for your loss today. I have always sensed you were a kindred spirit in your frank and open opinions about any and all subjects.

    I now understand why I felt so strongly. As a fellow recovering alcoholic and reformed smoker, I know where that honest and down to earth courage you demonstrate comes from.

    Stay strong and hurry back....you are missed!

    The first thing I do is go on your site to read your comments as you are indeed a straight talker (not grandpa war as he would like to believe). I value and treasure your analysis and perspective on the issues. You do not mince words. Whenenever you are away, all of us feel your absence even though we know you need the break. This is one break I wish you never had to take. Please know that even those of us not in the US are thinking of you at this time. Canada

  373. Liz in West Hollywood, CA

    Oh, Jack ... I was positively shocked when I heard. I can't imagine your grief. The feelings of a husband at a time like this are far different from those of children, even adult children. Stay close and strong for each other; let others reach out to you even if they don't quite know what to say. I would also like to add that Wolf Blitzer's announcement was as lovely as it could have been under the circumstances. And you have your CNN "family" at your side. Count on them.

    Jack,
    Wolf read your comments about your respect, admiration and love for your wife Carol. I am sorry for your loss and hope your memories and the joy she added to your life, as well as your children, will carry you through this difficult time. Carol appeared to be a remarkable woman and her passing must be devasting. We are thinking of you and hoping you will find peace in knowing love lives in the hearts and minds of people touched by Carol.

    Dear Jack...

    In this most tender and grief-filled moment for you and your family, all the political spitfire and spinning that is getting tossed around must seem nothing short of absurb. There is nothing more important than how we love and care for one another, recognizing the strength and hope that comes from those bonds of connection. As you and your family hold each other during these difficult days, please know that there are many of us who invisibly walk by your side, offering our deepest prayers of care and concern. As for all this political stuff...well, unfortunately, all the remarkable biographies and one-up-man-ship rhetoric that won't help anyone will still be here when you get back.

    God's comfort to you and yours...

    Jack, I'm an avid viewer of the "Caffertyfile" on CNN. I became an avid viewer because of your insightfulness and straight talk on various subjects. I have tremendous respect for you. I am not an American but i certainly practice American values. You're good man, a confident man, fair man and a very practical man. My personality caused me to suffer in the prior years, that's until I started watching you. I ADOPTED your "straight talk" demeanor and it has brought me tremendous success in changing the way i present myself to people and the way i couduct myself overall. Thank you for being such and inspiration to my life. I never knew your wife but i'm sure she must have been a wonderful person just to be associated with you and far more being your better half. She has gone to be with her maker and now you're left to carry on her legacy; one i'm sure will be remembered for years to come and never forgotten by those closest to her. Please accept my condolences for your loss. This will be a trying time for you both mentally and emotionally as your life long partner has passed on but please stay stong; i'm sure that's what she would want. Good people like you and your wife are hard to come by and difficult when we lose them. She will always be with you in spirit and in truth, remember that when lonliness attempts to overwhelm you. You will have a friend in God in those trying times, just lean on him. Best wishes to you my friend, we need you to continue making a difference in our lives.

    A loss of a dear one is indeed heart striken and no amount of emotions or words can really describe how you feel. I lost my dearest dad and its changed me in a positive way, because i learned to to ask Christ to bear my grief and He has. Ask Him, He is the only way out. We love you, you are the only reason we stay glued to situation room. You are honest and very objective. God bless you.

    Jesus, Jack. Through the "wonders of television," I, like millions of others, feel like I know you. You and your girls are in my prayers. It is always incredibly difficult to lose someone you dearly love. It is a particular challenge when that person is the one with whom you wake up, with whom you share your meals, your jokes, your innermost thoughts, your challenges and your triumphs. It is also a pain that is, I think, difficult at our time of life. You were extremely fortunate to have found Carol and fortunate to have had a pretty long run together. Not that that matters a hoot right now. I hope it helps a little to know just how many people you have never met and never will are holding you in their hearts and in their prayers now and in the days to come. God bless you and your daughters.

    With my deepest sympathy,

    I am sorry to hear Jack lost his wife. What a tragedy for anyone to lose a loving family member. My sympathy goes out to Jack and his family. However, asking people if they would like to make a donation to her cause is a little too much and in my opinion distastful. That should be left to her family, friends, and Jack's co-workers not the viewing public. Jeanette Lewis, Hilliard Ohio

    Very sorry to read about the loss of your best friend.
    I was touched by your story about (soon to be) wife wondering what gas station you worked at when you always wore a shirt and tie and how you loved her honesty and innocence. I was reminded about a similar experience about my own wife when I was in the Navy driving on a naval base. My wife spied a bumper sticker on the car in front of us. The bumper sticker read: "Semper Fi" and she innocently asked me what sorority that was? Hold on to the humor you once shared.

    My wife and I extend our condolences and prayers to Jack and his family. Jack has become a member of my family in the past year. Lacking a brother of my own I have adopted Jack, and we frequently have talks and yes, disagreements. But in the end, I can turn on my TV at 4:00 Monday thru Friday and Jack is usually there, ready to resume where we left off.
    Unfortunately for Jack and his family, he can't bring Carol back that easy. But I'm sure that the memories she leaves him will strengthen him during this time and the trying times to follow.
    One day at a time, Jack.
    We love you.

    To Jack and your family; To say I'm sorry for your loss does not seem to be enough, but it will have to do. I am sorry for you, your children, and your grandchildren. Your wife seems to be more than a rock, she sounds like a precious gemstone. Keep the Serenity Prayer in mind during these dark days and know you have family, friends, and many fans pulling for you. My husband has a favorite poem called "The Station" stuffed in his desk somewhere. I'll try to find it. For now, I will make a donation then give my son and our dog a hug! Suddenly, having to take the dog out in the rain seems like a privilege.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

    My mother and I watch you every night and remember you from your New York days with Sue Simmons and Chuck Scarborough. We enjoy your wit, sense of humor and honesty...it is quite refreshing.

    I was widowed at 30, I lost my husband to cancer. It will be 13 years next week (9/10) and I still miss him. Not a day goes by that I do not think of him. The pain lessens...but the memory never fades. That is my sincere wish for you and your family Jack. I hope your pain lessens, but I wish you beautiful memories. May the Lord heal your heart. Take one day at a time and keep the faith.

    So Very Sorry for Your Great Lose of Your Wonderful Wife.

    My Thoughts and Prayers are out to You and Your Daughters.

    Great Spirit, I am weak, as winter begins with spring and death begins with birth. Let Love, Understanding and Forgiveness be the trail I walk in the circle of life and bring me the Serenity and Peace of mind I need to Help my Family and Neighbors face the Tragity of Lose and the Suffering of Pain.

    I too am a lover of Animals. I have 2 cats, Buddy I rescued from an animal foundation and Bootz I got from a family that found him and 4 other kittens with a dead mother. The kittens were about 2 or 3 days old. I also have contributed to the A.S.P.C.A.

    Again Jack, My Very Best to You and Your Entire Family.

  525. Jeayn Fahey

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Jack, yet am grateful you had 35 transforming years with a woman you loved.In 1965, at the age of 19, I met a young Canadian hockey player in New York City. We married 23 days later and are still married. We were from different countries, cultures, religions, backgrounds, etc. and nobody said it would last. It lasted through many personal disasters because what we GAVE to each other far outweighed what we TOOK. And, I know for you, today you are remembering what Carole gave. I hope you will also remember what YOU gave, as well. For I'm sure for Carole that is what she remembers. Jeayn & Trevor Fahey

    Mr Cafferty,
    I am very sorry, nothing will fill the void. I never knew your wife, but in a way I did. I just asked my Mother to buy your book last week. I told her you were a special man, with a talent for being honest, in a world that lacks honesty, especially in politics. Mom had a drinking problem like you, many years ago, and she quit for my Dad, like you quit for your wife. It wasn't about your drinking that I recommended your book, it was about the man that your wife and you made into a good man, and how you both shared that good man with his honesty to the whole world through this idiot box we call TV. Mom has been a TV news watcher since I can remember about 55 years ago. She knows a good reporter, and though she just started watching you, she has seen it already. So Promise me that you won't let that wonderful wife Carol down. Take all the time you need, but when you are ready, you come back, and you be you and Carol, all the people out here that care will cheer you on. By then Mom will have read your book, and she'll be shedding a tear like I am now. Sorry sir, you are a good man, and give a thanks to that wonderful woman for me, the love shows.

    I didn't know Carol but if she helped to mold you into the man I enjoy watching on CNN then she was an exceptional human being. Often we never realize the person on the other side of the TV screen is real and has real relationships that effect who they are and in turn have an effect on we the viewers. My sympathies and thoughts go out to you and your daughters.

    Jack,

    With the advent of "celebrity journalism," I've often felt a chasm growing between those of us out here in the so-called real world and those on the business end of a TV camera. You've remained an exception to that rule–a straight-shooting, no b.s. guy who clearly loves America and the people in it who are so often screwed by its government. Of all the people on the TV, you're the one guy I feel like I know.

    So, despite the fact I've never met you or your wife, I'm struck by this news as if the tragedy had befallen a close friend. It's odd, I know, but it's a testament to your character and, by extension, the character of a woman who must have been something to go toe-to-toe with you for so many years.

    You will be remembered in my prayers.

In a year of troubled times in America, it is refreshing to see some one like you Jack, who calls it the way it is. That is the problem in America, you need more straight shooters to keep the political hacks honest.

    Jack,

    I want to extend to you and your family my deepest sympathy for the loss of your beautiful wife. I know that all who work with you there at the CNN Newsroom and many of your admirers,as well as myself, feel your pain.

    The story you tell of how you met your wife and what her love and inspiration had done for you to change your life for the better...brought tears to my eyes. She sounded like she was your hero. Now she is your shining star in heaven.

    Your coverage of the Conventions (both Democratic and Republican) was "RIGHT ON". You never missed the mark- bringing out very important points for we as "Viewers" to consider and give attention to.
    Thank you for reporting the facts in your "No Nonsense" way. We all await your return to CNN –
    God bless you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Genie Da Cruz

    My deepest sympathy to Jack. He is one of my favorite journalists and may just well be the best one on TV. He is the main reason I watch CNN and it's like having a regular afternoon conversation with a good friend – something I look forward to every day. Especially in these days of all the political rhetoric.

    I don't know Carol, but she must've been one heck of a lady!

    Jack Cafferty is an extraordinary American. That doesn't matter to him now, but it matters to the rest of us. I can't imagine his pain. Life means loss; he was fortunate to have love for as long as he did. God bless you, Jack, and your family, who isn't as well known but feels the loss just as much. I hope that when Jack and I go – and we will – that we will be as sorely missed. But for now, all the best, and thank you, and thank her. She must have been a hell of a woman to put up with you, and to help make you the voice for so many of us who need you.

    Jack,
    In these recent weeks of the presidential campaign I have turned to your blog for honesty and insight (along with some much needed humor) concerning the candidates and their VP's. When I logged on to check your blog this morning and saw that there was only a message saying you weren't in I was worried something might be wrong, but I never thought it might be the loss of your wife.
    My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family.
    I hope you can return to the Cafferty File soon but I more than understand if you can't.
    Again, you and your family will be in my prayers.

    I just finished reading Cafferty's book my husband bought for me as a gift. The book was great, especially his description of his life with wife Carol. It was wonderful and the way they met ...how she was unaware of his celebrity.

    Jack, I cannot begin to express my sorrow for the loss of the love of your life. Words are completely inadequate.

    I love you and look forward to seeing your segments every night on the Situation Room. In your grief, try to remember that you bring so much true joy and light into the everyday life of working stiffs like me. We will be praying for you and your family. Our thoughts will be with you during the empty months ahead.

    Those of us out here in your television audience wish we could bring a smile to your face or a belly laugh to you during these next months of grief. You do so much to brighten our boring days; we only wish we could return the favor.

    Being the mom of two adopted pets, Carol will be remembered by me and my life partner by a contribution to the Mississippi Animal Rescue League (MARL).

    Anyone who could love Jack Cafferty for 35 years has to be an "animal" lover!

    We all love you, Jack. God bless you and your family.

    Dear Mr. Cafferty, I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how sorry I am for your loss.

    Dear Jack,
    I am so, so sorry. You and Carol are too young to die.This is horrible, I'm devastated.
    All the platitudes apply but I wont go on about how Carol's spirit will live on in you.I know you feel as if you died, now.
    Please know that I will be praying for you, that every day you grow a little stronger, a mite further along the road to recovery.
    You will, but it's wrong to even suggest it now.Life without your Carol won't seem like life.

    You know there are so many of us, praying for your consolation, and sending support..I hope this will be of some comfort in days ahead.
    I'm a supporter of SPCA and have made a contribution in Carol's memory.

    You know she wants you to be OK. So do we all.
    Big support and love, Joan Flaherty,Haverford, PA

    Jack–
    I lost my husband Eric in February to a massive heart attack. We had been married 35 years. I think I have an idea of how you're feeling right now. I miss Eric more everyday. My best comfort has been in memories, the love and support of my family and friends, and the knowledge that I'll be with him again some day. I'll be thinking of you and praying for you in the days to come. I enjoy watching you everyday on the Cafferty File and adding my two cents when I feel strongly enough about something. I look forward to your return, when you're ready.

    Please take solice in the knowledge, that you and Carol will be re-united in the end. Life comes from the light, is born and fights darkness, dies and returns to the light.

    I knew nothing about Carol but pieces fit together for me now. I have no doubt seen her influence many times by watching you, Jack. Your determination to cut through the yada yada nonsense and courageously tell it like you see it, no doubt comes from what your sweetheart Carol has taught you - do real.

    No surprise that she was devoted to the realest around us - our animal friends.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Jack and family,
    My husband and I had watched your news program in NY and probably never misssed a night.'We moved to MD and happily found your news show on cable here on CNN.
    I met you many times in Foodtown in Cedar Grove .. we lived in Verona .....and was very impressed that you did the food shopping!
    How terrible I felt when tonight I heard that your wife had passed away.
    You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.

    On many occasions I do not agree with Mr. Cafferty and his opinions on politics. However today is a day to put our differences aside as on behalf of my family and the rest of Canada, we wish Jack our condolences in the passing of his wife and although we never really get over the loss of a loved one, our hearts go out to Jack .

    Jack, last night you read my thoughts on the air and I was in heaven; today my heart aches for you and your family. May the 35 years you had with Carol sustain you through this most difficult time and always.

    Jack:

    I am so sorry to hear about your wife. You have my deepest sympathies, as do your and Carol's two daughters, Leslie and Leigh. And your other two daughters, Julie and Jill, and and your grandchildren.

    I also lost my wife a couple of years ago. There is nothing worse than loosing someone you love, and nobody more so than your wife. You can take comfort in the fact that she isn't suffering anymore. I know that it gives me comfort.

    I lost my wife after only eighteen months of marriage, but it doesn't hear any less. Please know that your viewers care.

    September 5, 2008 at 9:17 pm |
  805. Winston Taylor

    Jack, you are in my prayers. Let me prove it to you... I heard Nancy Grace commenting that your wife passed, and my heart broke. I rushed to the computer to find the report, and my wife asked. "Honey answer me honestly. Do you really care that this man's wife died?" I told her yes. She asked, "Why?" I asked her to think about the fact that I spent more time with you and the CNN and MSNBC news team than her, and she said, "true". In other words I told her that you are a part of our family!!!! I cry with you and your children tonight, I share your pain. No we have never met, and probably won't- but I want for you to know that you are genuinely part of our family. My prayers are with you and all of yours. May the God of peace grant you his eternal PEACE.

    Oh, Jack I am so sad to hear the news of your wife, Carol, passing away. There's not a day that goes by during the week that I don't come over to the Cafferty Files and wonder what question you have for us to ponder.

    I know the utter pain and agony you are feeling because I'm a widow. My husband died after a heroic 5-year battle with cancer. It shocked me when he passed away as every day he said he would beat it. That he was 7 years younger than me and we had been married for nearly 21 years made it even more difficult. Your angel, Carol, is now with my angel. We both now have our own personal angels in heaven.

    Jack, every night, when I climb into our obviously too big king-size bed, I repeat this ancient Eskimo saying: Perhaps they are NOT stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine and let us know they are happy. Carol will now live on in the wonderful memories in your heart.

    May that saying bring you some semblence of peace in the coming days. Please take the time to grieve, Jack, for grief is the price we pay for love. We will be waiting for you when you are able to return. Jack, you are OUR rock. You are able to ask the tough questions of the issues of the day, and for that I thank you. You are, and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

    September 5, 2008 at 9:20 pm |

    Carol was one of the classiest women I have ever met . First Came the true love of her family. That stood out the most ,but she adored fashon and clothes and the way they made her feel. she always looked stunning and i will always remember many saturday afternoons chatting with you in BRAVA, while Carol shopped. she could have put a bag on and she still would have looked BETTER THAN ANY ONE ELSE IN THE STORE .You were both perfect pieces together. We will never forget her.

    No one has mentioned the fact, since it came out sometime ago in this long race, that Michelle Obama (Baracks wife for those who do not know the woman trying to dance on Ellen Degeneris's show), said
    since her husband picked up the Democratic nomination, that she stated soon after that she was "Proud to be an American for the first time in her life"! Does anyone in America, who are by rights her proud citizens, realize what she has said in those few words? She is basically saying that no matter the fact that she was born in this free country (bought by many like John MaCain), that she is now only proud since her "african american" husband has been put in a position that makes her feel proud! She played the race card there and no one in white politics or black took the opportunity to jump on it. Race should not be a factor in weather we are proud to be American, rather it should be simply upon what we hold dear and that is freedom and liberty, not based upon the color of ones skin or how far up the ladder thay may have come.
    God help us all if the statement that "True power lies behind the throne" holds true. If Obama gets elected we may be in for more than we expected.

    Jack......My sympathy and pain go out to you and your family. I know what it's like to have someone so carrying and loving. I lost my husband of 47 years 7 years ago. Early in our marriage, with 4 children, I succumbed to a severe mental illness. My husband stood by my side, thoughout the therapy, and my long road of recovery. He was left wondering when he came home from work on many days if I was alive. I was sucicidal at the time.

    God bless you and keep up your good work on CNN.

    Thanks....Joyce Foley

    Jack, you have many friends out here that think you are the best part of the CNN family. I watch for you each day, since you don't mince words when the truth needs telling, unlike so many others.

    I was saddened to hear of your wife's passing and you will be in my thoughts through this difficult time as will your family. It is so very hard to give up a loved one.

    My husband passed away in 2000 and was 42 year sober. His greatest pleasure, as he battled cancer, was helping the local AA kids understand about sobriety. He was my hero. Remember that you are never alone with friends of Bill's beside you and you are never alone with all of your viewing audience wishing you well.

    Stay strong, my friend, we need you back on your show.

    Although you will probably not be able to read all of our comments, Jack Cafferty, I hope you will be at least touched by the sheer volume of the outpouring. As the widow of a spouse I adored, I do know the numbing loss you are struggling with at this moment, but I also know that those who love you will help you find your new reality if you let them. I also hope you will be able to bring your voice of reason back to us, your loyal viewers, as soon as you are able. You help us make sense of a world gone mad, and we need you. And we grieve with you.

    Jack, when I first begin to watch CNN you were one of the few people that I enjoy watching. You say everything with an intense, sincere facial expression. Your conversation seems so honest and straightforward.

    I pray that God will strengthen and comfort you during this time. I hope that you are blessed today, tomorrow, and forever.

    Jack,
    Words fail an individual at a time such as this. Nothing I am going to be able to utter will soothe your heartache. But I want you to know one thing. That fabulous woman of yours will want you to miss her. She will also want you to live a content life. One that is indicative of the things you shared together. You are supposed to be sad, even in shock right now. But I know this about you, and I suspect it of your bride...You do not quit. Take time to grieve and get your head around things. I will be waiting along with , literally, millions of others when you are ready to get back into the saddle. I think I can speak for the masses of your fans and friends when I say, if there is ANYTHING at all that we can do for you...Make it known and consider it done.

    One of the few things our government and politicians cannot take from us is our sense of family and belonging. You belong in our families as we look so very much forward to seeing you daily. We are in your corner and will be shedding tears with you over the next while.

    Keep the faith. God Bless and keep you as you contemplate your loss.

    Your friend,

    Jason

    My sincerest sympathy and thoughts go out to you and your family. I've never lost a spouse, but I have lost my dad at a young age and watched my mother lose hers. Take as long as you need, but I know getting back to work really helped my mom and it was what my dad would have wanted. It sounds like your wife was as practically minded as my father.

    Did john incane went to college? there is no college or school in this world, where you take courses to enable a person to become president. john incane must understand that. and joining the army is not a pre-requiresite to be a president any body can join the army that does not mean you must be a president at all cost.

Having been there, that hole you feel in your heart NEVER mends and as for "time heals all wounds"...........the one word that should be changed is "lessons, not heals."

    Jank, The dedication you wrote about your wife in your book, and the story of how you met really touched and softened my heart. It also reminded me, in this hyper-political season, that I need to do a much better job of lookng beneath the skin, and seeing that most basic level of humanity that goes so far beyond our opinions and our positions. I am so sorry for your loss, but I am glad that you knew and celebrated such a wonderful person.

    Dear Mr. Cafferty,

    Topic: The ridiculous selection of Sara Palin for VP.

    I am a 50 year old father of three, two girls and one boy, who is appalled at the way our moral foundation is being eroded. I am not saying that I am pure as snow however shouldn’t parents set high expectations for our children? The way the new religious right has framed Gov. Palin’s family is just for political purpose and does not reflect what is in the best interest of our country. To invite the young man who explored in teenage sex to be on national TV is absurd. What he did should not be looked upon as a proud act or something to be followed by others. Instead it is an act of failed family morals and lack of respect for him and her family as a whole. This usually occurs in kids who lack the parental attention and want to start a family of their own so they can get the love that they themselves lack. You properly pointed out that the highest divorce rate is from these young kids who become parent prematurely.

    Now a major political party has chosen to use this weakness as a ploy to get people to relate to their candidate. I am shocked at how low politicians will go to get elected. For Gov. Palin to parade her daughter around with the fiancé as if this was all perfectly planned and that she has control over her family, sadly this is not what has occurred. The choice to have children should be based on the couple’s ability to care for and nurture them to become thoughtful and responsible adults. Gov. Palin seems intent to have as many children that she can without regard to her or her husband’s ability to care for them. Had she spent more time with her kids and less on her popularity contest and her career she may have had different results. It takes two very dedicated parents to raise children and neither can take a break to do their own thing. Both my wife and I work and we play phone tag very often to coordinate family issues every day. Kids will not stop and wait for the parents to get back into the game. My wife is a public school teacher specializing in special needs kids. Many of the children she works with come from troubled families who lack in one area or another to give their child the complete support they need.

    I ask both parties, don’t send the wrong message to the youth of this country to try and win this pathetic election. The parents of this country already have their hands full without them adding to it!

    Children should find out what the world has to offer before they bring another child into it!

    Respectfully,
    John Rutoski Minneapolis, MN

    Jack,
    My sincerest sympathies. Of course I didn't know your wife, or you for that matter, but in the years I've been watching you on the Situation Room, I've come to feel like you're the guy next door, the rough and tough curmudgeon construction worker that I worked with for 25 years and become, a Gibraltar of sensibility in a world of lemmings following the pied piper over the cliff of insanity that is our social, political, fruitcake of a country. You and your producers published my responses twice in the last year or so, and I'm grateful for being recognized. But more importantly, you've created a platform for all the regular Joes to speak their minds, and be heard, even if it is for just a flash of time. Your segment every hour is an exciting way for people to get involved in the politics, and it is, in its own way, a contributor to the Democratic process.
    I'm certain that CNN will give you as much time as you and your family need to be together in this grieving time, but I'm anxious to see you on the air for the countdown to Election Day. Your crusty, hard edge demeanor is needed as soon as you can get yourself back in that chair, Jack. My gut feeling is that your wife probably would agree. God bless you and your family, Mr. Cafferty.

    Jack:

    I am so sorry to hear. If I were religious, I would say she is going to a better place, but I am not, so I must tell you if she was anything like you, then earth has lost an angel. The good thing is, because of Carol, we will also gain one. Please take the time to grieve, even though we will miss you. Be thankful you and cherish in your heart the 35 years you had together. The "Which Gas station you work at", that's a classic, and a sign of having spent 35 years with an awesome, caring humble, and genuine character.

    Hang in there Jack!

    What is John McCain's position on the draft? I'm worried he would reinstate the draft if elected. Has the press asked him about it? If not, he should be put on the spot... NOW.

    Jack,
    To have loved a woman as her, is the one and only meaning in life it seems. Ah, but to have never of met or loved her at all? Would that not be the most sadist and tragic life to live? To continue living not ever to have know a love such Carol? Hold on to your memory's and grieve as we all will and should. Just remember.. she loved you just as much and I'm sure she wants you to be strong and happy for your children and grand children's sake. Life is a trip Jack, we are all on a short ride. Some get off the bus early, while the rest of have to continue on and wonder why. We will all miss and remember Carol Cafferty . A mother, grandmother, and beloved wife of Jack Cafferty. Hang in there and hug those kids tight Jack.

    Words cannot convey the depth of sympathy we all feel at your loss, nor will they take away the pain. But they do say that so many people admire and feel a true liking for you, and we're so sorry for your bereivement. You give so much validation to the thoughts of your fellow "sixty-somethings" please know that while we share your sense of loss, we're hoping you'll come back to us when the time is right.

    Thank you for all you say and do to help reinforce our faith in ourselves.

    Dear Jack,

    My mother, married to my Dad for 46 years, passed away suddenly one year ago this week. It has been a hard year for all of us, particularly so for my Dad. But as he said to us, "If I had the chance to avoid this pain now by not being with her all those years, would I choose not to have been with her? Beyond a shadow of a doubt, no. I would not trade those years for anything - she was the treasure of my life. If the pain were less now, that would mean that the joy would not have been so great for all those years."

    As the waves of grief wash over you, dear Jack, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and that her presence and influence will never leave you.

    The death of a loved one is always difficult for those left behind. The death of a spouse means the loss of a best friend, a confidant, a partner, a companion, a lover, a helper, a sounding board. I share my empathy with you.

    Dear Jack,

    You're one of my biggest heroes. Your humor and intelligence have continually kept me captivated. I have always had a wish that if I ever met you, I would love to give you a big hug ! I admire you tremendously. I just learned about the sudden passing of your wife. I can't even begin to imagine how heartbreaking this time is for you. Although I didn't know your wife, considering how special you are, my guess is that she must have been very special as well. There is nothing that anyone will be able to say to take that awful feeling you are feeling right now away. But I want you to know that there are likely millions of people like myself whom you have touched who are sending all their prayers and thoughts to you and your family. Hang in there, Jack. We need you dearly.

    With love from Winnipeg, Canada.

    It was readily apparent that Jack Cafferty had a strong, principled and loving spouse behind the cameras and spotlight. His on air persona is one of humility, candor and common sense. He puts on no airs, doesn't "bloviate", and I give his late, dear wife credit for keeping him so grounded. They must have made "some" couple!
    My sincerest sympathy goes out to Jack and his dear children.
    May Carol Cafferty Rest In Peace.

    Hi Jack,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your wife. I know that God will get you through this, and give you the strength that you need. I gave my son away for adoption, wanting him to have a better life than I could give him. After so long, I couldn't take the guilt, and set out to find him. He would have been 35; but, I found out that he died a few months after his 21st birthday. I was shattered; but, God gives us strength when we need it. Please accept my condolences, and, I am putting your wife's name on a Memorial Card–I am Catholic–and she will have Masses said for her everyday through the Priests of the Sacred Heart Monastery.

    Here is what is on the inside of the card :

    SAFELY HOME

    I am home in Heaven, dear ones:
    Oh, so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.

    All the pain and grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed:
    I am now at peace forever,
    Safely home in Heaven at last.

    Did you wonder I so calmly
    Trod the valley of the shade?
    Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
    Every dark and fearful glade.

    And He came Himself to meet me
    In that way so hard to tread:
    And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
    Could I have one doubt or dread?

    Then you must not grieve so sorely,
    For I love you dearly still:
    Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
    Pray to trust our Father's Will.

    There is work still waiting for you,
    So you must not idly stand;
    Do it now, while life remaineth -
    You shall rest in Jesus' land.

    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you Home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
    Oh, the joy to see you come!

    Jack, God is standing with you right now, feel his hand on your shoulder, and around you–trust in HIm, He will never let you down. Cry in His hug, let Him comfort you and your family and friends and neighbors. Life is a short time; but God is forever!!! He gave you a wonderful wife, and, why He took her, no one knows but God. Please keep trusing in Him. His ways are not our ways; but Father Knows Best!!!

    Jack of course I did not know your wife Carol, and I only know you from CNN. So the only thing I can say is that I pray that God gives your entire family strength. I also lost my wife within the pass year, so I think I know how much you hurt. So continue to hold your head up. I told my sons (I also have 2) that the last down we will look down on their mother and my wife will be at the funeral, after that we will lift our heads toward Heaven. I know I'll see my wife again, and I hope and pray that you believe that you will see your wife Carol. "Who knows they maybe talking to each other right now saying everything is going to be alright. Again God Bless You.

    To you and your family on the loss of Carol
    This is such sad news and I want to tell you how sorry I am for this loss. I thank God that he brought her into your life and that the two of you were so happy. I thank God that he gave the two of you 35 years and two wonderful girls together. I pray that God brings you comfort for your pain and lots of great memories to fill the empty hours that you will experience. We all love you dearly Jack. Peace Be With You.

I sincerely hope you will find the strength to soldier on because Jack, in this campaign of smoke and mirrors , lies and half truths from where I sit, you call it as you see it ,and see it as it really is.

    Jack –
    As someone who lost his wife of 34 years, I can truly say, "I know how you feel." You have my deepest sympathy.
    There is a rather simple metaphor that describes what you are going through and will be going through. It helped me a lot . . . and I hope (if you ever get a chance to read this) it will help you.
    It's like being thrown in an icy cold lake. It's chilling, cold, and numbs you to the bone. You can't get away from the cold . . . no matter what you do . . . and sometimes you feel as though you simply want to die.
    But, be assured that TIME is your friend.
    Over time, you DO get used to the cold. There will be times when you feel the cold, cold chill, but eventually you get used to it.
    When you do get used to the cold, and you WILL, you are faced with a clear decision: sink . . . or swim.
    Swim, my friend, swim. There will be times that, when you least expect it, you will feel that chill. Don't worry – the chill will pass quickly.
    It is tragically sad that with the death of a spouse, you can never build more loving memories.
    But, the memories that you built during your lifetime with Carol can NEVER be taken away from you. Never. And, as you will discover, they become sweeter over time and will give you warmth.
    People might say that "You'll get over it." You won't. You just have to learn to live with the loss.
    And you will. You WILL.
    But, you will never get out of that cold lake. You will just learn to live with it.
    Believe me, this has helped me (and others) during such a tragic time, and I hope (if you get to read this) that it helps you.
    We'll see you back on CNN when you are ready, and look forward to either agreeing or disagreeing with you . . . as you wish.
    Again, I know how you feel.
    All the best.
    Charlie Jett

    Admittedly, there is little I agree with you on politically. However, that is all irrelevant when it comes to losing your life's partner. I can relate in that my wife is also named Carol and we have been married 35 years. She also endured many years of my alcoholic abuses – yet she gave me the support I needed to conquer it and survive. I can not imagine what my life would now be like without her. Jack – I am thinking and praying for you today.

    My heart goes out to you and your family. I lost the love of my life several years ago. I know first hand how difficult this is to go through. I have faith your family, friends and co-workers will walk with you through these dark days. If all of those support networks don't help?

    Just read your blog! You are not alone.

    Jack,
    It saddens me to know of the immense loss of Carole for you and your girls-and your other family, too. May the good memories and all of the good things of life that are left make you begin to feel optimistic about the days ahead. And, may our Heavenly Father help to ease the shock to your spirit in the days ahead as you seek the peace of a communion with that universal spitit. Meditation with that great universal spirit often offers me that peace. I hope you will find it, too.

    We miss you, Jack. And, we look forward to sharing our community again with you when you begin to feel that it's time. I hope that each day that passes helps you to come to terms with this drastic changes that are now a part of life for you and your family.

    May God bless you all with strength of spirit and needed foresight during this difficult time, Martha Stanford from Lake View, S

Faith, prayers, family, friends and time is what will get you through this. From someone that has been there, don't forget how to laugh. I will miss your on air comments, but hope that you will return to us soon.

  1150. Anne C.

    Dear Mr. Cafferty:

    While I did not know your wife and only know you through your shows on CNN, I found myself shedding a tear or two at the news that your wife passed away. I've asked myself why I would feel sad about a loss for someone I do not know, and I think it is because you seem to be so true to yourself and therefore true to your viewers that I can only assume that you had a wonderful partnership with your wife. I am lucky enough to have that kind of partnership with my husband of 25 years, and I can only imagine what you must be going through.

    So, please accept, from someone who only occasionally watches your show and from someone who has never written in to it, my hearfelt sympathy.

    September 8, 2008 at 4:53 pm |

    Jack,
    I cannot begin to imagine what you and your family are going through right now. No one can truly appreciate anything but the losses they have suffered themselves. There are no words of "sympathy" that can make one fell any better. It will go without saying, that you and your family are there for each other. That's all you can do.

    All I want you to know Jack is that; when you are ready, all of us are here for you too.
    Quietly waiting,

    There is an old saying that states a parent should not outlive their children. I firmly believe that it should also state that a man should never outlive his wife. I believe that a man can handle almost everything short of this personal catastrophe. I will keep you in my prayers Jack.

    To Jack Cafferty,
    I heard today that Jack Cafferty's wife died and I want to add my name, sadness and good wishes to the list of those who are paying tribute to his wife and to him. There's not much to say; it's all feelings. Death is one of life's lousy tricks and sudden death is even lousier. And losing a spouse is even lousier than that. My heart goes out to the entire Cafferty family and especially to Jack .

    My personal condolences Jack. You seem like one of my family and I hope for mental relief and healing as soon as possible. I am not long for this world and I realize the pain of memory will be all I leave, and wish there were someway to avoid it as I am sure your wife did also. I attended many burials for veterans while at Ft Bragg NC circa 1967, and do remember some wakes after the burial which were asked for in last wills and testaments. Going as quickly as your wife did, I am sure she would have wished you happiness in the remainder of your life if she had had the opportunity. See you as soon as you deem right.

    Repectfully,

    Bob G/ Denver

    Condolences and many prayers to you and your family in the passing of your wife. I lost my husband suddenly and it took a while to recover. He was my rock. I learned the true meaning of faith and the importance of trusting that life returns to your heart in due season. I hope you believe and will experience that as well.

    Jack, I am a regular and devoted listener of your comments on air.
    Your commentary is my favorite part of the Situation Room. You speak truth.

    I was truly sorry to learn about Carol. She sounds like a wonderful person. It is always more difficult to lose a loved one unexpectedly.
    May you have the strength and courage to carry on in the face of this tragedy. I will pray for you and May God Be With You,

    Jack,
    I have always enjoyed reading and watching you because of your honesty, forthrightness and integrity. I should have known that your wife would be someone who would "keep your feet nailed to the floor". You are so blessed to have had her in your life. Some people never find someone like that to spend their life with, you are indeed a fortunate man.

    Please accept my heartfelf condolences for you and your daughters loss. I will keep you in my prayers as well as your family. Even though death is a natural course of life, the ones who are left behind are far worse than our love ones who leave us. We miss them daily. It doesn't stop, but it does change over time. I know since I've been where you are and it was helpful when others shared their experiences with me. Jack, please take the time you and your family needs to get throught this tragedy. No one will know when it's right to return to work but you.

    We will miss you and pray for you.

    Jack & Family,

    Even though you don't know us (your television fans), we feel that we that we know you a little bit from your style of reporting on CNN. You are honest and tell it like it is (with a twinkle in your eye). That's an example we should all live by. Your wife has completed her job on this earth (with flying colors) and she will continue to be your rock from heaven. The sorrow we feel is not for those who have gone to a better place, but for those of us who are left behind and have to continue on life's journey without them.

    God Bless!!!!

    Dear Jack, I am feeling so bad for you now and wishing that you did not have to go through all the pain that happens when someone we love dies. Your wife would want you to remain strong and not to let yourself slip back into thinking having a drink or smoke will help, it won't. Time is the only thing – and beautiful memories will live forever. I often think of those I loved who have left this world and the tears fill my eyes but I am so thankful for the years I had with them and I think of the love I had for them and the tear clear up and the memories stay.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your sad news. I am certain that this will be a hard time for you, but hang in there and don't quit trying now. I know that if I were to lose my wife unexpectedly I would be in big trouble. As a disabled person my wife puts up with many things that other people just could not handle. Like your wife mine has been key in getting me to straighten out things in my life. As an example I have actually almost made it to 10 months since my last smoke. Lately she's been on me to lose weight and avoid diabites. Naturally, without her support I doubt I would have been as happy as I have been. I'll keep you in my prayers and trust she has gone to a better place. Good luck, and I'll pull for you. Give God a chance to give you a hand.

  1211. jo fine

    Jack,
    I cried the moment Wolf announced to us, your fans, your friends, of the death of Carol. And crying is not something I do much at my age. But somehow I relate to you and the depth of your loss, just as I've related to you over these months in my living room, appreciating every thought you've shared with us. You are part of our family.

    I am an "only child" of 64, married to the love of my life for nearly 25 years. We have no children. Losing him would be a hurt I cannot even fathom. And likewise for him.

    After reading about your love for Carol, I can only imagine what you must be feeling without her. Please know you have so much support out here, and we miss you terribly. May your children, relatives, co-workers and friends surround you with love and comfort. Embrace Carol's memories.

    We are just ordinary folks that are more or less CNN junkies. We always say that you are the kind of guy we would like to have join us for lunch or meet at D and D for coffee.

    There is not much you can say to some one about the loss of a loved one. Even though we only know you as a TV news guy and as the author of your book we feel your loss.

    We will think of your wife, you and your family in our prayers.

    Jack,
    My deepest condolences and prayers go out to you and your family. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

    I'd like to share with you Jack an uplifting story if I may:
    Years ago, I saw a report on ABC's 20/20 about centenarians; people that live to be a 100 years or more. Aside from diet, genetics and exercise, scientists concluded that three common factors all the centenarians had were: 1)A sense of humor 2) a positive attitude and 3) the ability to cope with loss.

    One lady they interviewed was 102 years old. Just days before the scheduled interview, the woman found out her 77 year-old daughter had just passed away. The crew asked her if she wanted to reschedule the interview out of respect. She decided to go ahead with it. Then the crew asked her if she wanted them not to bring up questions about her daughter, (her only child) she said she would talk about her daughter if asked. The crew to double-check, asked the woman if she was sure she wanted to talk about her deceased daughter. She said said it would be a way to express her grief. They said ok.

    When the day of the interview came the crew after setting up, began asking her about her life, her upbringing, background and of course, her family. Turns out the centenarian woman was an English teacher who was a devout Christian and she expressed her feelings by writing poetry. Everyone interviewing the old woman was scared to bring up her daughter for fear of bringing up her memories of her daughter who was now gone.
    One researcher spoke up and asked the woman about the relationship she had with her daughter. The old woman fondly recalled all the wonderful and sometimes painful memories of bringing up her daughter from the time she was a baby, to a young girl, a teenager, a young woman settling down and having a family of her own. The old woman reminisced having her daughter to talk to as her daughter grew older. Then the researcher asked the question everyone else was afraid to ask: "How do you feel about out-living your own daughter when mother-nature dictates this should not happen?"
    The old woman thought for a minute and the answer she replied was staggering. She replied: "Well, when my daughter was born, I felt that she was a gift God had given to me and now that my daughter has passed on, I'm giving that gift back to God."
    Tears streamed down the faces of the entire crew, including mine watching on TV.
    Imagine Jack, this woman's attitude in dealing with the loss of her own child and the amazing fortitude of her faith and strength she had as a Chistian to overcome this tragedy.

    Jack, as painful and as sorrowful as you feel now, rest assured that God loves you and be blessed that God gave you as his gift 35 wonderful years with Carol and your returning this gift back to God. He will help you cope with this as the days progress. Pray and have a positive attitude. God will get you through this time and I will pray for you and your children. God bless you and we hope to see you back on CNN when your ready.
    We love you Jack. God bless.

    Our Deepest condolence, sympathies & prayers are with you & the family. May God give you & your loved ones the required emotional & spiritual strength to cope up with this tremendous loss & may his abundant & unconditional love sorround you, comfort & sustain you through this difficult time. To lose a loved one is always painful & more so when that loved one is a spouse of 35 years & so I do understand that no words would ever be adequate enough to fill the void. But please take comfort in knowing that this is not the end but we all would meet again!

    With much Love & Prayers

    Jack & family,
    I am so sorry about your wife. I lost my husband several years ago & I still miss him to this day. It will be hard for you but time heals a lot of the pain you are going thru. I continued to work for several years after his death & I am so happy I did as it helped get thru the sad times. I have 3 daughters & at that time they were 18, 22, & 26 & were busy leading their own lives so they weren't around much as 2 were in college & all 3 lived away from home.
    I love your program & hopefully you will continue to work. Take care & again my sympathies are with you & your family
    Sincerely, Wyllo

    Iam deeply sadened by this tragic loss. The untimeliness of it all makes it all the more shocking and painful. Mr. Cafferty, my prayers are with you and your family. I pray that Carol may rest in peace.

    Sir, your contributions at CNN have made so much difference in so many lives and, it is without a doubt that the late Carol had much to do with it. We will miss her greatly.

    I share your loss and pray for you. I hope the Almighty will watch over you and your family during this difficult time. I pray that you will find the energy and courage to carry on both for your sake, your family and all of us.

    I think that Governor Palin is a reasonable intelligent woman. How can she direspect all women by referring to her self as pit bull with lipstick. That means that she is a B. If Senator clinton made a statement such as this she would be crucified by the "Socially conservative." God forbid if Michell Obama made such a statement. As a women's activist, i think theis is a terrible statement for any woman to make, and cry if a male says this about her.

  1293. Robin Connell

    Jack–I was so moved by the things you wrote about Carol in the introduction to your book. And, I can sincerely "second" your wonderful comments about Carol's strong foundtion and sense of purpose–as I was her closest girl friend as we grew up together in NW Missouri. We were both terribly lucky to have wonderful parents who instilled all of the best of "small-town" values in us. We went to church together, we had many, many slumber parties together and we literally learned about the world together as we grew up.

    I had never heard the story about asking you what service station you worked in, but I know that to Carol, it didn't matter whether you worked in a gas station or TV station. She talked of you often and of her deep respect and love for you and the girls.

    She was indeed a very special young girl who grew into a wonderful, caring and loving mother and wife. I can't imagine your sense of loss, but I know that the Lord that Carol believed in and loved will be there with you through all of the coming days.

    You and the girls have our deepest sympathy and on-going prayers. Carol was a wonderful , kind, unassuming lady who enriched many, many lives–most of all yours and your girls.

    May God Bless all of you.

    Jack, my very deepest sympathies to you. You are my absolute favorite person in the media, and your comments on the current campaign are so correct, and so very important. You are a beacon of sanity in the midst of outrageousness. I'm so sorry this has happened. Your story and hers, how you met, how much she has helped you, is an inspiration, Jack.

  1295. Barbara Gilchrist

    Jack, I pray for you and your daughters. I too, like you have lost 2 precious loved ones in the past 8 years I belieive it was. In 2001 I lost a most special grandson named Leon I am fortunate to have 8 grandchildren but, this one was the one who stole my heart if you know what i mean. I truly love all of my grandchildren but he was the one who was so different and so special and required lots of love.
    It was a tradgedy and also so sudden.

    I also lost my only brother about almost 2 years ago. I am writing all of this to say. The pain for each was almost too great to bear, but somehow my family made it through both loses, oh it still hurt but, less so as time goes by.

    This reinforces the saying that time truly does heal all wounds. The memories are what we hang on to. The good times outweigh the bad times. Still it is hard. i know that you will get through this, give it all the time you need with love of family and friends and God you will be alright I just know it. I watch CNN every day and the Cafferty files I really enjoy. I thank God for you. Barbara Gilchrist

    Jack, last week I finally found a copy of your book. After getting half way through it I learned of the loss of your wife on Friday. I just wanted to tell you that my wife and I are very sorry for your loss. I'm sure it doesn't seem as important as it did a week ago but your work is very important to this country and you have a lot of people who really appreciate what you do and your style of delivery of the truth. I look forward to your show every day and often quote you for effect when attempting to convince my knuckle-brained friends that everything is not always as it appears on those "other" networks. My best wishes to you and your family in this time of loss.

    I judge you to be one honest and straight shooting guy who knows the difference between right and wrong. You must have married a wonderful person, as I did, and I can understand what you are going through because my wonderful wife has stage three cancer.

    Hang in there Jack, it ain't easy. The older I get the more I cry.

    My dear Jack,As one of your listeners, you live in my living room and my den and are therefore a part of our household. My husband and I are so sorry to hear of the death of your wife; we have both lost our previous partners, and know only too well that it is a terrible loss. My first husband died after a long illness, John's wife dropped dead of a sudden heart attack that came out of nowhere. I think my loss was "easier" in that I had a chance to say goodbye, even though watching someone you love in pain is the worst thing in life. I hope your wife did not suffer, and John and I pray you can accept God's love and support.

  1358. barbara burke

    I feel as if a good friend of mine has suffered a loss. It is certain many fans have made a similar connection to you through your comments on "Cafferty File." We feel we know you personally because of your straight-foward, no-holds-barred approach to FACTS that most reporters preface with weazel words such as "allegedly" and "supposedly."

    This is reassuring in today's news reports, and I am sure part of your desire to give the audience unvarnished news is because your wife Carol shared that characteristic with you. I know her influence on your life and your standards will continue because of the love you shared.

    Dear Mr. Cafferty,
    I want to send my heartfelt condolences to you and your children. While working in the broadcast news business everyday, you must see the horrors of death on a daily basis. But losing your spouse is, well, such a profoundly painful experience, that it really rocks the survivor to the core.

    I know. I went through it five years ago. And like everybody says, you'll get through it. But it sure ain't easy. I wanted to include my comment with 1000s of others who are keeping you and your family in their thoughts and prayers.

    September 8, 2008 at 7:11 pm |
  1370. Carroll

    While nothing can bring her back, may you find.... strength in the support of your family and friends; comfort in your memories; and peace knowing she is in a far better place and will always be with you.

    "To laugh often and much,
    to win the respect of intelligent people
    and the affection of children,
    to earn the appreciation of honest critics
    and endure the betrayal of false friends,
    to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others,
    to leave the world a bit better,
    whether by a healthy child,
    a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
    to know even one life has breathed easier because
    you have lived.
    This is to have succeeded!"

    Jack,

    I wish extend to you my hearfelt sympathy over the passing of your wife. Here is a part of poem I would like to send to you and your family.

    I must leave you for a little while,
    Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
    And hug your sorrow through the years,
    But start out bravely with a galant smile;
    And for my sake and in my name
    Live on and do all things the same,
    Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
    But fill each waking hour in useful ways.

    My prayers are with you and your family God Bless!

    First,you have a wonderful program and I am very sorry to hear of the loss of the love of your life so suddenly. Please accept my condolence.

    Second, I have a concern regarding McCain and the earmark flap. After being in the senate for twenty-six years, it's rediculous that he could not find any project worthy of needing additional assistance. Each Senator has the ability to help further worthy projects in their district. Was there not one worthy project in the whole state? This not a badge of honor-shame on McCain!

But after tuning in more and more, I realized that you were Really interested in what the average Joe has to say about our country and the people We hire to lead it. Do I agree with you all the time, no, but sometimes disagreement is a good thing. I watch the Situation Room whenever I can, but can honestly say that the best part of the whole show is The Cafferty File.

    So sorry to hear about your wife, Jack. She meant everything to you and that hurts. But remember the good times you two had together in those 35 years and think good thoughts. As pets do, maybe she will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. It's a poem dedicated to pets, but it can cover humans, I think, as well. God bless you, Jack, and take care of yourself and your loved ones.

    From the descriptions of your wife, she was a treasure and you did just that, treasured her.

    The one thing I've learned from losing people I love is that they never really leave. As long as you are alive, so are they, in your thoughts and actions and the life you lead. She'll be there.

    Dear Jack,

    There are never the words to provide enough comfort when one has loved as deeply and as long as it seems you have. An old teacher told me once, "It takes a lot of sanding to make a Stradivarious". You have that quality in your honesty and authenticity, and it must be that she was part of the sanding and gentle buffing that helped create that beauty in you.

    Know that grief lasts a while and rears it's baffling head when you least expect it. Two years after my Dad died, I thought I had it under control. I was on the way to a PTA meeting and the beautiful symphony of Finlandia came on the radio. He was a proud Finn, and we had visited Finland together. We had sung that song in English and Finnish with the relatives we discovered there, often sharing tears of joy . I don't know how long the tears lasted as I sat there in the car listing to our national anthem... I think they could have filled the car to the brim. After that, I learned to say in moments when I was lost or just so enormously sad, "So this is grief". Somehow recognizing it helped me to accept it.

    With faith and stengthened by beautiful memories, I made it through...but it does last a long long time. You and your family will stay in my prayers. May you be strengthened by the love and prayers of all of those whose lives you have touched with the wisdom and strength that come from spiritual recovery.

    Many blessings for comfort in the most difficult days, Sally

    Please accept my sincere condolances for the loss of Carol. You said she made you what you are and you are the only reason I tune in The Situation Room. She did a good job! I am a former resident of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey and now I live in Florida. I hope you will come back soon I miss your marvelous sarcasm..they do not know how to do it right in Florida!!

    Jack, I wish you strength as you deal with such a loss. I, too, am a recovering alcoholic who was inspired by my soulmate. My husband died of a heart attack before he got to see the miracle of my recovery. Carol must have been an amazing woman. Thank God she had the best of you for so many years. Yours in Fellowship, Joan

    Jack:

    I can not even begin to fathom your loss and as I read the text about how you met your wife and how she provided the great stability you found in your life, I am reminded of my own wife of 25 years who mirrors the qualities of Carol.

    CNN to me is typically on my tube here at home, and one of the reasons being is I love the Cafferty File. I enjoy with great interest each one of your questions and observations and to me, your contributions are the icing on the Cake-NN at CNN. I know that all of us who follow your blog and comments will want you to have peace, reflection, time away - but a speedy return back to work when you are able to roll up the shirt sleeves and jump back into the middle of what is going on in our world.

    God bless and may you find tranquility and grace in the coming weeks.

    First and foremost, my sincere condolences for the passing of your beloved wife. I was going to make a comment on this absurd weekly "polls" but I will leave that for another time.
    Your loss is our loss Mr Caferty.

    May God give you the strength to deal with such tragedy.

    Sincerely

    Hello My Friend,

    The right words at times like this are most difficult. So I’ll merely say Blessings unto you and yours in this your hour of bereavement and need. May the road rise ever with you, and the winds be always at your back. May the sun shine always brightly upon your face, and the rains fall ever softly upon your fields – and until you may return and we might see you again, may God attend you most tenderly in the palm of His hand.

    Jack, Dude, tears are streaming down my cheeks as I write this because my heart is breaking for you and your family. Love such as the kind your family shares doesn't die it continues on. Carol must have been an Angel to inspire you to change and put up with you while that change happened, she has now been promoted to a Saint and she will always be with you. Talk to her often and you will learn to recgonize her new voice. Love to you and your family from a long time fan.
