I want to thank you all for your kind words through this unimaginably tough time. We are thankful for the amazing support! We are thankful for the gift of Carter-Man!! He is an amazing child who taught us all a lot about life and love. He will be missed terribly! We are thankful that he is in the arms of his Heavenly Father and he has finally met his grandfather, whom loves him so much. We are thankful for Carter's home nurse, Cecilia, who is now part of our family. She took amazing care of Carter until the end! We are thankful for the team at Capital Hospice for their care, love, and concern for our family. We are thankful for the wonderful doctors, nurses, child-life specialists, social workers, and case managers at INOVA who took such excellent care of Carter-Man and our family! YOU ALL ARE AMAZING!!!! Carter loved each one of you dearly!!!

The services for Carter-Man are as follows:

Visitation at Covenant Funeral Home in Fredericksburg on Thursday, December 17th from 5pm-8pm
Funeral at Falmouth Baptist Church Friday, December 18th at 2pm
Graveside will follow at Falmouth Cemetery- Carter will be laid to rest next to his grandfather

We are all trying to wear as much red as possible!!! Carter's favorite color is red and his second is blue!! Although black is normally the color of choice, this was Carter's least favorite color. We want this to be a Celebration of his wonderful life. He would want us to celebrate the special times we had with him!

Again, thank you to everyone!!!

With Love,

No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.
