    To Unlce Carters family,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m sure none of you remember who I am but I’m Jr. Boldens oldest daughter Sherry Ann. Uncle Carter as you well know was a wonderful and caring man. I can remember being 6 years old and he gave me a half dollar. I never felt so loved. He always gave me a big kiss and a hug when I saw him. I’m sorry I can’t be a part of his services but if there’s anything I can do please let me know. Hugs and kisses to all. Prayers for each and everyone of you.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The last time I saw Carter was November and I asked him if he had any trips planned because I knew he loved going to Tennessee. He said he had been thinking about it. He also blamed me for “Hurricane Sandy”, he thought that was funny. My prayers are with the family.

    Love Sandy
