Kim and family I am so sorry to hear about Carter. I enjoyed confusing him with the Mail Lady he talked about all the time. Sending many prayers your way at this difficult time.

David I was just told tonight about Carter. You and your family will be in my prayers. Since you know I am off work I had not heard and I was told about the funeral tomorrow. I don't know what to say, I only know that the hurt is more than anyone can ever have. I do know that God is always there, in your heart, to lead you, to guide you no matter what has happened. I will be praying for Him to give you all His strength and love.
