The loss of your life partners is a special kind of grief that is like no other
when suddenly you are in the world alone.

Are the good side of religion. Not a Follower but they have made the purpose, look right.
I think her and Jimmy, soon to follow, are done with the hell on earth, all the evil fakes claiming to be God’s peeps, destroying the message and turning people away.
You make me hope you both were right, and you are in a paradise with your sweetheart soon to join you.
An eternity I would want to be with. Never wanna spend eternity with this GQP. Give me the dry heat.
RIP Mrs Carter.
If God ever does bless, these two have earned such blessings. 😥😢

18. Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter Passes Away at Age 96

ATLANTA (Nov. 19, 2023) — Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, a passionate champion of mental health, caregiving, and women’s rights, passed away Sunday, Nov. 19, at 2:10 p.m. at her home in Plains, Georgia, at the age of 96. She died peacefully, with family by her side.

Mrs. Carter was married for 77 years to Jimmy Carter, the 39th president of the United States and the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, who is now 99 years old.

“Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished,” President Carter said. “She gave me wise guidance and encouragement when I needed it. As long as Rosalynn was in the world, I always knew somebody loved and supported me.”

She is survived by her children — Jack, Chip, Jeff, and Amy — and 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. A grandson died in 2015.

“Besides being a loving mother and extraordinary First Lady, my mother was a great humanitarian in her own right,” said Chip Carter. “Her life of service and compassion was an example for all Americans. She will be sorely missed not only by our family but by the many people who have better mental health care and access to resources for caregiving today.”

The schedule of memorial events and funeral ceremonies will be distributed as soon as possible to media and posted on www.rosalynncartertribute.org. This tribute website includes the family’s official online condolence book and opportunities for memorial gifts, as well as an official biography and downloadable photos.

I was baptized the same day the hostages were taken in Iran. Due to my age, I have no memories of their time as President and First Lady. Most of my memories of them have to do with Habitat For Humanity.

The Carters had a REAL marriage and what a life of service. I had no idea until today what a huge advocate Mrs. Carter was for mental health.

God rest you, dear lady...and thank you. 🙏❤🕯

I fear we’re going to lose Jimmy real soon. All that time married, he’s in hospice, she just died.

The day he does leave us will be very sad for this country and humankind.

Their faith is proof that not all Christians believe in the subjugation of women who must be controlled by men and whose life decisions are to be made by men. His comment that she was an equal partner was so true because he treated her as an equal.
