I'm very sorry for the loss of your loved one. Loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a family will face. Please know that others care and that God heals the brokenhearted, Psalm 147:3


I am very sorry to hear this sad news. I will always remember Dean Carter's huge smile. My father and Dean used to play golf together, and my father, who was a pretty good golfer himself, said that Dean was an exceptional golfer and a very interesting golf companion. Mike's and my thoughts and prayers go out to his lovely family.

My sincere condolences goes out to the family during this difficult time. May you find a measure of comfort in God's promise at Revelation 21:3,4 where we look forward to a time when there will be no more pain and death any more.
