Charlie and I went to the Border Patrol Academy together. I am so sorry, he was a good friend. He called me last fall, asked me to stop by next time I went thru Hondo, I wished I had. I just found out that Charlie was gone. If I had known I would have been at the service. Bob Wright

I wanted to let you know how Michelle's stories of her father inspired me. The love and faith described caused me to admire a man I never met. His legacy and that of the Lord though Mr. Carter lives on in those he loved and left behind (temporarily). I am sorry for your loss yet I rejoice in his gain. His life and faith are now complete and he is surrounded by a Joy for which those of faith long. May you find comfort in your faith and in your memories. You are in my prayers.
