  • I’m sorry to hear of Mrs. Carters passing. I met her when I was young and was friends with her her son Mark. I was always impressed with the firm grasp this family had with their own love for each other and their love for the Lord. I’ve remained friends with Mark and Mr. Carter over the years and I pray for peace for the family!
