Debbie, I don’t know from your early years in metropolitan Denver, but I met you at Macedonia Baptist Church during the last few years. You moved in God’s spirit and it was so obvious that you were a proud and determined member of the Carter family and the daughter of Deacon Carter. You always had a smile. When you came, I always received a hug and a smile. I know you are a determined vessel of light and creativity. You will certainly be missed, but I know you are faithful resident of Heaven. God bless you as you praise and glorify God Almighty and Jesus Christ.

  10. THIS IS EXACTLY MY SENTIMENT DEBBIE.

    God’s Garden
    By Melissa Shreve
    God looked around his garden and found an empty place
    He then looked down upon the Earth and saw your tired face
    He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
    With the help of his angels they flew you to your heavenly place

    Gods garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
    He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain
    He knew that you would never get well on Earth again

    He saw the road was getting rough and the hills too hard to climb
    He closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be Thine”
    It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone
    For part of us went with you the day God called you home.

    I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I’M REALLY GONNA MISS YOU.

    REST EASY SUNSHINE 💗🥰⛅️

  14. Dear Deacon Carter & family,
    We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to all of you. We can’t remember a time when we did
    not know your family. We have a great deal of respect for you all. You will find solace in the word that is written in Rev.21:4 KJV and it reads, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
    In Christian love,
    Karen Griffie Henderson & Velma G. Vanduvall
